Despite the gloomy Carpocalypse that has the rest of the automotive landscape in shambles; Audi AG has posted a record number of sales for 2008.
While it may not be a record number for some automakers, Audi AG has, for the first time, exceeded one million global sales in 2008. Thanks to the recent release of the new 2009 Audi A4 and the small 2009 Audi Q5 SUV, Audi was able to attain a total number of 1,003,400 sales globally, a 4.1 percent increase over last year’s 964,151 sales. December 2008 sales jumped 17.4 percent (82,800) over the previous year’s December sales (70,523).
We congratulate you, Audi in your sales success, but can we ask you to please bring back the Quattro Sport now that you’re a proven sales success? Thanks, we won’t forget it.
