AUDI AG started the fourth quarter of the year with significant sales growth. In October, deliveries worldwide showed a year-on-year increase of 10.8 per cent to around 146,200 cars. Cumulatively, Audi sales since January have risen by 10.1 per cent to about 1,444,900 units. In the past month, the three major export markets for the four rings made a particularly strong contribution, with growth rates well into the double digits: China up 17.0 per cent, the United States up 16.5 per cent and the United Kingdom up 22.1 per cent.

 

The Audi A3 was voted best in the class of compact cars in the TÜV report 2015. The A6 finished second overall in the reliability ratings. The analysis takes account of the results of 8.5 million technical inspections conducted by the German TÜV association on 226 models. Since 1971, the TÜV Report has served as a popular consumer guide for people buying a used car in Germany. 

The winners of the third Audi Urban Future Award are now known: the award, at €100,000, the world’s highest-value prize for innovative mobility solutions, goes to Mexico City. The competition team headed by the renowned architect and city planner, Jose Castillo, impressed the international jury with its “operating system for urban mobility.” Its heart is a data platform with which cities can design their transportation planning according to needs and drivers can flexibly adapt their behaviour to the latest situation. Under the motto “the next leap in mobility,” four interdisciplinary teams from Berlin, Boston, Mexico City and Seoul competed for the Audi Urban Future Award with their innovative ideas on tomorrow’s mobility. “The two mega-trends of urbanization and digitalization will radically change mobility in large cities,” explained Rupert Stadler, CEO of AUDI AG, at the award presentation in Berlin.
