Is it because of the Tesla Model X’s temporary absence?
Audi has noted an incredibly good first quarter in the U.S. this year, as its result improved by 33% year-over-year to 54,840.
Not only that, the all-electric car sales hit a new quarterly record of 4,324, which is 153% morethan a year ago and a very good 7.9% of the total Audi volume.
The first noted 3,474 deliveries, 103% more than a year ago, bringing the total number of e-tron in the U.S. to almost 15,000. The e-tron Sportback noted 850 units in its third quarter of availability, which indicates that it’s a significantly less popular version.
Anyway, Audi is on a rising path. We might wonder whether it has something to do with the temporary lack of Tesla Model X on the market – one of its major EV competitors in the U.S. (Tesla is refreshing its flagship models, so customer deliveries almost stalled).
This summer, Audi intends to start sales of its all-new all-electric model, the Audi e-tron GT (a cousin of the Porsche Taycan), which in the long-term will be followed by the Audi Q4 e-tron and Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron.
