Audi achieves record vehicle sales
Worldwide sales up by 9.5 percent on last year
Premieres at the IAA: Design Study, A4 Cabriolet and A4 Avant

    Ingolstadt (ots) - Never before has Audi sold as many cars in the
first eight months of a year as it has in 2001: a total of around
484,000 cars bearing the four rings of the Audi badge were handed
over to customers worldwide. 442,154 vehicles were sold in the same
period last year. This is equivalent to an increase of  9.5 percent.
    
    Dr. Franz-Josef Paefgen, Chairman of the Board of Management of
AUDI AG commented on this success as follows: "We are expecting the
market launch of the A4 Avant in the autumn to have a further
positive impact on our sales. We assume that Audi will be able to
maintain this satisfactory trend and that all key figures for the
whole of 2001 will be up on the previous year."
    
    Audi will be presenting the new A4 Avant to the general public for
the first time at the Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA). It will be launched
on the market this autumn. The new A4 Cabriolet, which is to be
launched on the market in the spring of next year, will also be
premiered. In addition, Audi will present a Design Study. This Study,
which is bristling with new ideas, will demonstrate the technical
leadership of the brand with the four rings.
    
    Audi is an international developer and manufacturer of
high-quality cars. In 2000 the company sold more than 650,000 Audi
vehicles. The sales revenues of the Audi Group totalled DM 39
billion. The Audi Group currently has around 50,000 employees.
