Audi Scores 100 Consecutive Months Of U.S. Sales Growth

February marked the 100th consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains for Audi of America.

Automotive News reports that Audi hasn’t reported a sales decline in the U.S. since October 2009 and shows no signs of doing so.

During the unbelievable run, gains in sales have fluctuated from as much as a 37.9 per cent gain year-over-year to as little as a 0.0368 per cent increase in February 2014 when sales rose by just four units. For a majority of the near decade-long streak, however, sales have risen by double digits each and every month.

Throughout the run, the German brand has added at least 6000 sales annually and for two years, enjoyed increased sales of over 20,000 additional units.

What is particularly remarkable about the ever-increasing sales figures is the consistency. Even as consumer desires have shifted towards crossovers and SUVs and automakers have been forced to introduce EVs to meet CO2 regulations, customers keep flocking to Audi in unprecedented numbers.

Things are unlikely to stop. Audi has introduced all-new A6, A7, and A8 models all within the last nine months and will look to snag sales in the premium crossover segment with the Q8. What’s more, it is possible that the next-gen A1 will spawn a compact Q1 crossover that may be offered in the U.S.

    Strange how they have managed to avoid the VW group diesel taint.

        You have yet to realise the uintended acceleration case was unjustly created by 60 minutes, unfounded? It is not hard to uncover…

    • Autoexperte

      in Germany they have problems, but not with the emission scandal
      the problem is that you can not tell if they’re new, while in a new C-class it’s easy to see that they are not 10 years old, in the USA the problem is not there yet, because you have not Grill with ox horn lights has seen enough

      Word, bro!

    • Loquacious Borborygmus

      They are very good at wrapping averagely reliable mechanicals in a shiny package.

      All that glitters is not gold.

      Sour grapes…?!

      • Autoexperte

        No, Lexus, Mercedes, BMW and Infiniti are great cars IMO

        • DanSemering

          Audi, Lexus , Mercedes , Volvo & maybe Jaguar.. IMO …..

          BMW….i remember going with some important clients to a restaurant and there were heavy rains and a road drain blocked and the water was very high….the car just stop in the middle of road…we had to take them in another car just like babies..+ I hated winters on a rear drive BMW … and putting a bag of sand on trunk…..

          Infiniti … There aren’t many around here and I haven’t driven one.

    As attractive as the package may be, the basics of the engine hanging out over the front is something I cannot get my head around. I haven’t owned one since the 200 series of the early 90’s, but I’m not tempted in the least. My neighbor had a Q7(?) for a loaner and I realized I am not wrong. Big, ugly and dumb are no way to go through life. Who said that?

        Thank you for the reminder. I really wanted to like the Q-ship, as it had everything my wife puts on her “must” list. Couldn’t pull the trigger.
