Audi reports 10 percent sales increase in September

German luxury car-maker Audi (Volkswagen Group) reports a 10 percent increase in sales for September, compared to the same month a year earlier to 150,300 luxury cars and sport-utility vehicles on improving demand from the United States, China and Europe. Nine-month deliveries rose 7.6 percent to 1.18 million vehicles, the Volkswagen-owned division said on Monday, citing the Q3 and Q5 SUVs and the A3 compact as best-selling models.

By comparison, Daimler’s Mercedes-Benz, which fell behind Audi in 2011 in global sales charts, last week reported its highest-ever deliveries in September. Volume at Mercedes rose 15.9 percent to 142,994 vehicles, the manufacturer said on October 4.
