2015 Audi A3 Propels Four-rings Brand to 43rd Straight Sales Record
High Demand Forces Audi to Pull Ahead 2015 Roster
The launch of the new 2015 Audi A3 compact luxury sedan has been a streak saver for the Audi company: Thanks primarily to the A3's 2,164 deliveries in July, the four-rings brand was able to post its 43rd consecutive month of sales records, and by a fairly large, double-digit margin. But the thing is, although the brand's 14,616 sales were 11.9 percent higher than in July of last year, its volume would have been firmly in the red without the 2015 Audi A3.
On the other other hand, Audi points to particularly low dealer inventories as a limiting factor on sales, exacerbated by a combination of strong interest in Audi vehicles and the current transition period between the 2014 and 2015 model years. But look for that to be addressed sooner rather than later.
