As you may recall, October was a month for the ages for our favorite automaker here at Audi North Scottsdale. Not only were they posting record sales left and right, but now that November's numbers have finally been tallied, it was clearly a sign of things to come.
Last month, Audi sold 13,636 vehicles in the US. It was a 13% year-over-year sales increase from November of last year; it was enough to boost their year-to-date sales totals to 141,048 units; they have now sold more vehicles in the first 11 months of 2013 than they did in all of 2012.
That's right, sports fans: Audi has officially claimed its fourth-consecutive annual US sales record and we've still got one more month to go. As for the models that helped them reach such a milestone, it was a team effort as always. Then again, with combined sales of over 5,000 units, there were two models in particular that truly rose to the occasion:
"The story of the fourth consecutive Audi annual sales record in the US is one of strength across our product lineup, authentic Audi brand development and a highly engaged dealer network," says Mark Del Rosso, Executive Vice President and COO of Audi of America. "The cornerstones of this brand achievement all year have been sharply higher demand for the [2014 Audi Q5] and [2014 Audi Q7] SUV models, as well as the premium sedans at the top of our range."1
With that said, there's never been a better time to join in on the celebrations with a test drive at our dealership here in Phoenix, AZ, just down the way from Mesa. Because if things keep going like they're going, 2014 has its work cut out for it.
