Audi Has Another Month of Record U.S. Sales in July

Audi Lynbrook, a premier Long Island Audi dealer, has a lot to celebrate this summer. On August 2, its corporate parent, Audi of America, shared the news that the company had set its 67th straight month of record U.S. sales in July. Its popular models - the Audi Q3, Audi Q7 and Audi A4 - led the volume gains with a July sales increase of 4% to 18,364 vehicles and notched another monthly record on surging crossover sales.


For dealers like Audi Lynbrook, the summer selling season is providing a stage to distinguish its outstanding sales performance.  July 2016 was the brand’s best sales achievement in U.S. history. Year-to-date sales have risen 3.6 % to 115,298 vehicles sold.


The record sales increase was aided by customers who chose Audi SUV models. In this category, SUV models saw a rise of 15% over last July and a 22% increase year-to-date. The luxurious interior design and smooth ride attracted robust sales for the Audi Q3. This compact crossover SUV posted a sales record of 1,819 vehicles for the month, a 56 percent increase over July 2015.


The popular compact SUV, the Audi Q5, saw sales rise by 2.8% to 4,833 vehicles for the month. This crossover is a true multi-tasker offering luxury, handling and utility. Not to be outdone, the versatile full-size luxury crossover SUV Audi Q7 saw its sales rise 20% from last July to 2,322 vehicles, an increase of 63% year-to-date. It features a choice of three capable engines, a finely crafted interior and a cavernous cabin with seating for seven.


Customers continued to demand the Audi A3 and Audi A4 models. The Audi A3 sedan with its timeless elegance posted 3,038 sales for July, including 349 deliveries of the plug-in hybrid electric vehicle A3 Sportback e-tron. The e-tron has recorded sales of 2,291 vehicles year-to-date. The Audi A4 with its impeccably engineered driving reputation posted sales of 2,612 vehicles, an 18 % increase for the month and an 11 % increase year-to-date.


Audi Lynbrook is part of the robust dealer network that has helped successfully launch and promote several of Audi’s most important models this year and that’s strengthened Audi’s sales amid the tightening premium market.
