Audi reported that its July 2015 sales increased 20.8% to 17,654 vehicles, a total that stands as the fourth-best monthly result ever in the U.S. market.
Audi achieved its best-ever July sales in the U.S., marking the 55th consecutive monthly sales record. The previous July record was set in 2014 with 14,616 Audi vehicles sold. Through the first seven months of 2015, Audi U.S. sales rose 12.4% from last year to 111,269 vehicles.

“The showroom traffic that our dealers saw in July indicates that demand across the Audi product lineup is hotter than ever,” said Mark Del Rosso, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Audi of America. “We are confident that the Audi momentum will continue into the autumn selling season with the release of the entire model-year 2016 portfolio and the upcoming launches of the all-new TT and the first plug-in Audi, the A3 Sportback e-tron.”
