Audi of America sets January sales record on SUV strength and sedan demand

February 01, 2017 | HERNDON, Virginia

  • Q5 SUV sales increased 35 percent to 3,636 vehicles
  • Sales of Q3 SUV rose 31 percent; Q7 sales up 3 percent
  • Demand for A4 sedan increased 31 percent; A6 sales up 20 percent

Audi of America’s January sales increased 11 percent to 13,201 vehicles. Both SUVs and sedans performed well, with the Q3, Q5 SUVs and the A4 and A6 sedan models leading the volume gains.

After its seventh consecutive year of record sales in the U.S., Audi continued that momentum in January with its 73rd straight record month. The previous January record was set in 2016 with 11,850 vehicles sold.

January results were bolstered by strong demand across the SUV lineup, with total SUV sales increasing 22 percent over last January. The Q5 was the volume leader with 3,636 vehicles sold, an increase of 35 percent. Sales of the Q3 rose 31 percent over last year to 1,181 vehicles. The Q7 posted 2,411 sales for the month, an increase of 3 percent.

Consumer demand for Audi sedan models was also strong. The A4 sedan posted sales of 1,737 vehicles, a 31 percent increase. The A6 sedan recorded 1,008 deliveries in January, an increase of 20 percent from last year.

Sales of the A3 Sportback e-tron did well in January with 387 vehicles, an increase of 18 percent and the third-best sales month on record for the plug-in hybrid. The recently launched all-new A4 allroad, which offers the performance of a sedan and the versatility of an SUV, posted a sales increase of 49 percent.

“Coming off a record year, we were pleased to see strong consumer demand across the product portfolio in January,” said Mark Del Rosso, chief operating officer, Audi of America. “We believe that Audi is poised for continued success in 2017 with products that will excite our customers and draw them into our showrooms.”

      Audi unveiled a four-door TT concept called the Sportback at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. Taking the overall sleek shape of the coupe, designers stretched the overall length and width to allow for two extra doors and a larger back seat. A new report from Auto Express says the four-door TT is coming and will take the place of the coupe and convertible within the next two years.
      The reason for the departure of the TT coupe and convertible is due to the diesel emission scandal. Due to the various penalties and fines, the Volkswagen group had to cancel a number of models and projects to save money. The next-generation TT coupe and convertible were likely on the chopping block due to low sales as buyers aren't interested in small sport cars. But Audi was somehow able to make a case to keep the TT as four-door 'coupe'. Auto Express says the design has been approved by management.
      The report doesn't say where the model will fit into Audi's lineup, but we suspect it will be priced slightly higher than the A3 sedan.
