Audi reports 15 per cent increase in May US sales; third-best month record in company history

Audi reported May 2013 sales of 13,228 vehicles, a 15 per cent increase over the previous May record set last year. Showing no signs of slowing in the US market, Audi May sales stand as the 29th consecutive monthly record for the brand.

The Audi A5 posted strong
year-over-year sales gains, demonstrating an enduring appeal of Audi core models. Sales of the Audi A5 increased 48 per cent for the month and 20 per cent YTD.

The Audi Q5 luxury crossover posted a 45 per cent gain in May to finish with the second-best sales total ever with 3,380 units delivered in the month. The strength of Q5 demand is a positive sign as the brand prepares to launch the 2014 Q5 TDI and the performance-oriented 2014 SQ5 models.

Sales of Audi premium category vehicles (Audi A8, Audi A7, Audi A6, and Audi Q7) increased 20 per cent YTD, and represent 32 per cent of total Audi sales year-to-date, and 40 per cent of the Audi year-to-date sales gain. Demand for the Audi Q7 jumped 38 per cent to 1,269 vehicles sold for the month.

"America is responding to the Audi brand; our dealers just can't get enough cars to fill market demand," said Mark Del Rosso, Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer, Audi of America. "Our sales momentum is playing out across the country and across our product lineup."
