Top automaker Audi made a delivery of 182,750 automobiles to her esteemed customers across the world in March 2019. These figures show that deliveries were down by 0.5 percent against the previous year.
However, Audi set new records in the United States and China. This is a contrast to the reduction in sales recorded the Asia-Pacific regions and South America as a result of model changeovers. In its home territory Germany, the German automaker recorded high sales in March due to sales boost of the high-in-demand Q models in addition to its introduction of the Audi e-tron into the market.
First customers in Europe to order the Audi e-tron took deliveries of the brand in March. More deliveries were made to Germany (490) as well as Norway (621). Blazing the trail of electric mobility in Europe, the Scandinavian country accounts for about 50 percent of the total Norwegian market in 2019.
