Premium car brand, Audi, had a new record year for sales in 2016 with 1,871,350 Audi models sold globally since January representing an increase of 3.8pc on 2015, writes Trish Whelan.
Audi sales have also increased in Ireland with over 6,000 registrations recorded in 2016.
Commenting on Ireland’s performance, Henning Dohrn, Managing Director of Audi Ireland said “We are very happy to be the number one premium car brand in Ireland. The basis for this success is due to our loyal customer base, committed dealer network, award winning products, and our continuous technological innovation.”
He is optimistic about the year ahead, particularly with the introduction of new models such as the A5 Sportback, Q2 (pictured above) and Q5 to the Irish market. Audi dealers are investing in the dealer network which will see the opening of three brand new Audi dealerships across the country later in the year.
