Audi R8 sports car sales drop significantlyJanuary 6, 2020
According to the results of 2019, Audi has significantly lost in demand for its only sports car. A total of 574 cars were sold in the United States last year.
At the beginning of each year, it is interesting to observe the sales reports of all companies. As it turned out, the German manufacturer is not doing very well with the demand for the premium sports car Audi R8. In 2019 alone, demand fell 38% in the United States. Back in 2018, the company was able to sell 927 copies of this model with a V10 engine, and in the past only 574 cars were sold. And last year the model went through a small restyling.
However, sales of another well-known Audi TT model have grown, albeit slightly. Demand in the local market increased by only 3% and amounted to 1,324 vehicles in 2019. This figure includes all versions of the TT, including the basic version, and such as the TTS, TT RS Coupe, as well as the TT roadster.
Explosive sales growth showed the flagship crossover Audi Q8. Demand for it increased six times (by 603%). If in 2018 only 2,029 units were sold, then last year ended with a mark of 14,256 new crossovers. Q7 sales fell 7% to 34,649 units. The most popular Audi Q5 model also began to enjoy less demand – 67 516 cars (-4%).
In total, in 2019 Audi USA sold 224,111 new cars, which showed a slight increase of 0.4%.
