In 2011, Audi broke its previous-year global sales total at the end of November. It did it again in 2012. It did the same in 2013, and it's done the same again this year.
The brand sold roughly 1.575 million cars last year. As of November 30 this year - its 47th record-breaking month in a row in the US - it had found new owners for 1.591 million cars around the world.
Where is the action happening? Everywhere, with double digit growth year-on-year in China (16.4 per cent, led by the Q3), the US (15.4 per cent, led by the Q5) and Mexico (10.6 per cent), and triple-digit growth in Brazil (105.2 per cent). Even Europe, still struggling to break free of its retail lassitude, returned a 4.3-per cent gain, with the UK and Swedish markets up by more than 20 per cent.
In November alone, Audi's deliveries increased 10.8 per cent compared to last year, and it broke the company record for monthly sales, getting 146,250 units out the door. You can find more numbers and details in the press release below.
