MUNICH (Reuters) -- Volkswagen's premium car maker, Audi, expects sales this year to be significantly above 1 million vehicles, the unit's boss said. "We are positively surprised by how we've started in 2010," Audi CEO Rupert Stadler said late on Monday in remarks set for release on Tuesday.

"We will also have a good second half of the year," he said, adding that he would give a more precise sales forecast with Audi's first-half report on Friday.

Audi sold 554,950 vehicles in the first half, up 19.1 percent from the first six months of 2009. The automaker is on course to beat its previous full-year sales record of 1,003,469 units set in 2008. The automaker's sales slipped 5.4 percent to 949,700 last year.
