Audi Tops 100,000 Vehicles Sold in China in Six Months

China has become an automotive sales paradise for most carmakers, and the Germans at Audi can’t but just confirm this. In a statement released today by Audi, we hear the automaker has sold more than 100,000 cars within a half-year period in China and Hong Kong for the first time ever.

This can be translated to a 64 percent increase over the same period last year. Moreover, in June alone, Audi has delivered 21,436 cars to Chinese customers.

“2010 will be another record year in Audi’s history in China. We will exceed the mark of 200,000 vehicles delivered more quickly than originally anticipated,” Peter Schwarzenbauer, Member of the Board of Management for Marketing and Sales at AUDI AG, said in a release.

Audi proudly states it has achieved a new record figure in terms of deliveries of vehicles built in Changchun, China, together with its joint venture partner FAW. The German automaker builds here the A4L, A6L and Q5.

Sales of the Audi A4L almost doubled (up 95 percent), as 26,622 Chinese customers bought this model, which is the first long-wheelbase version of a midsize sedan. With 59,465 units sold, sales of the A6L also went up 28 percent. The Audi Q5, of which production only began at the end of last year, made a successful start with a total of 7,906 vehicles delivered.

Sales of imported Audi models also rose significantly. The brand increased its sales by 139 percent to 14,607 cars. The Audi Q7 was also a successful selling model, with 5,288 units (up 77 percent) and do is the case with the Audi A8 (including the S8) with 2,351 vehicles delivered (up 26 percent).
