Audi reports record sales
The company sold 85,004 vehicles in 2007, which is 8.7% above last year. Sales for the month of November totaled 9,104 vehicles, a decrease of 1.1% from last year’s figures.
Aside of the usual boring numbers, not that 171 happy R8 owners received their supercar and 489 S5 are already driving on US roads. I am like you, I haven’t seen any yet but they are out there.
Compared to last year’s figures, November Audi CPO sales (pre-owned/used) increased by 25.5%. To date, CPO sales for 2007 are tracking at 24,169, an increase of 6.9%. This is a side effect of the very aggressive lease program started by Audi two years ago. BMW is showing similar increase in CPO sales, for the same reason.
