Although sales for the key half of this year are still below last year’s levels, Audi’s June was a encouraging one, thanks largely to China.

Sales in the brand’s largest national market were side with up for the first time in months after Audi announced that it had resolved an issuance with its Chinese dealers in May.

Concerns between Audi and its current Chinese helpmate, FAW, arose late last year following a deal with a new partner, SAIC.

Audi and FAW signed an understanding determining how cars would be sold in China. The deal appears to have worked and now sales are up to exactly 52,000 deliveries in June, a 1.7% improvement over last year’s number.

That marks an leading return to sales growth, as Audi sales in China after two quarters acquire decreased more than 12%. The real trouble is that the Chinese merchandise is so large, that the sales depression there means that sales worldwide at Audi are also down wellnigh 5% for the first half of the year.

With China back to growth, but, sales for the month of June are up 1% globally.

“Following a difficult first six months of the year, we look forward a stronger second half of the year in light of the current order situation,” said Dietmar Voggenreiter, Go aboard Member for Sales and Marketing.

That was helped along by continued growth in the characterize’s other major markets. In the USA, Audi had another record-setting sales month, performing 5% preferably than it had last June (and more than 6% better so far this year). And in Europe sales improved by 2.1% this month, which means that sales are up all but 1% for the year to date.

“June has confirmed that the trend for Audi in all regions for everyone the world is developing positively,” said Voggenreiter. “Furthermore, we will herald the start of our broad-ranging prestige campaign in the full-size segments with the new Audi A8.”
