USA SALES JULY - The records just keep being made at Audi, with sales numbers never before seen.

  • Q3 sets sales record with 56 percent increase
  • Q7 SUV sales rose 20 percent for the month, 63 percent year-to-date
  • A4 Sedan sales increased 18 percent for the month
Audi reported that its July sales increased 4 percent to 18,364 vehicles, as the Q3, Q7 and A4 led the volume gains.


Audi achieved its best July in the brand’s U.S. history. The previous July record was set in 2015 with sales of 17,654 vehicles. Year-to-date sales have risen 3.6 percent to 115,298 vehicles sold.

Sales of Audi SUV models remained strong in July, with a 15 percent increase over last July and a 22 percent increase year-to-date. 



The Q3 posted a sales record of 1,819 vehicles for the month, a 56 percent increase over July 2015. Sales of the Q5 rose 2.8 percent to 4,833 vehicles for the month. Q7 sales rose 20 percent from last July to 2,322 vehicles, with an increase of 63 percent year-to-date.

July results were also bolstered by solid demand for the A3 and A4 models. The A3 model line posted 3,038 sales for July, including 349 deliveries of the A3 Sportback e-tron. The e-tron has recorded sales of 2,291 vehicles year-to-date. The A4 posted sales of 2,612 vehicles, an 18 percent increase for the month and an 11 percent increase year-to-date.

“A robust dealer network has helped us successfully launch and promote several of our most important models this year and that’s strengthened our sales amid the tightening premium market,” said Mark Del Rosso, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Audi of America. 

“Consumers and the marketplace have rewarded the brand with
continued growth, which we do not take for granted.”
