Audi India’s Jan-Nov 2013 sales beats 2012 numbers, magical 10k unit mark on the horizon

Posted on: Dec 6, 2013 - 11:01am IST

Audi India has, from January to November this year, sold more cars than it did in 2012, a press release from the company read.

In 11 months this year, Audi has registered sales of 9,146 units, surpassing its 2012 sales figure of 9,003 units. This clocks a growth of around 13.31 percent. November alone saw the company selling 753 units and the company is inching closer to its target of selling 10,000 cars in a calender year.

The sales that Audi India has clocked so far is impressive given the fact that it hasn’t followed BMW and Mercedes-Benz in India in launching a hatchback.
