Audi Unveils Australian Flagship
Audi Australia has continued its strong sales run from 2008 into January 2009, growing by 5.5 percent compared with the previous year.
An all-time historic high of 1081 cars were sold in Australia last month (January 2009 vs 1025 January 2008).
Audi’s managing director, Joerg Hofmann, says the result is testament to Audi’s growing image in Australia on the back of four years of record growth and the strong products on offer.
“Audi is the fastest-growing premium brand in Australia. Our growth is both profitable and sustainable. We are also the No. 1 growth market for Audi worldwide,” Mr Hofmann said.
“There is no doubt we are currently operating in a very difficult economic environment, however our sales are up, our network is investing for the future and our customers are positive about our vehicles. We are in good shape for 2009, and with such a strong January result – our highest sales month on record, an increase of 5.5% on last year’s historic January high – we feel quietly confident in the market.”
“We have exceptional new product on the way Downunder – from the Audi Q5 compact SUV to the new A6 range, and the Cabriolet version of the popular A5 model, along with new engines for the A4 and TT. Audi is a growing brand in Australia, and we expect to continue to grow market share,” he said.
