Audi Sales are Booming

Selling 200,000 vehicles in a single year in the U.S. has been a long time goal for Audi, and it looks like in 2014 they’ll finally reach it. Sales have been skyrocketing all over the country, including in Texas where dealerships are reporting sales that have tripled in the last four years.

You can tell just how good sales have been lately by the plans to expand dealerships nationwide.

The Growth of Audi Dealerships

When a product is selling you’ll start to see more places that sell it. That’s definitely the case for Audi. Here’s a quick run down with some of the latest stats:

  • Audi now has approximately 280 dealerships in the U.S.
  • 100 of those dealerships are in some stage of expansion or improvement.
  • Dealer Carl Sewell is opening a second dealership in the Houston metro that is a $25+ million project.
  • 45 “Terminal” design Audi dealerships were built through 2013.
  • 30 more “Terminal” design Audi dealership are scheduled to be completed in 2015.
  • The total of all these projects – $1 billion
  • Despite that astronomical price tag, Audi dealers are expecting a good return on their investment. Between January and September of this year luxury car sales increased by 8% compared to the same time last year, but Audi sales have increased by 15%.
