Highest global mix of performance Audis sold locally

Highest global mix of performance Audis sold locally


Audi New Zealand’s latest sales figures show its S and RS vehicles make up 24% of the purchasing mix – Audi’s highest figure from across the globe.

“We’ve always been aware of the attraction Kiwi drivers have to our S and RS performance vehicles, but to be acknowledged at the highest level for our sales share is validation of that,” says Audi New Zealand general manager Dean Sheed.

Audi says it has ensured it has the widest possible range of high-performance vehicles available to meet customers’ needs and with Audi again taking the lead in the luxury segment, in what the Motor Industry Association reports was the busiest June ever for new vehicle sales.

“Customer feedback on our range of sports models has never been better, with the fleet now covering our SUV family (RSQ3 and SQ5) through to the high-end RS6, RS7 and S8 flagships.

“Not only are these models our highest performing vehicles, they showcase Audi’s technology, such as cylinder on demand (COD) engine technology in the S6, S7 and S8 models, where the 8-cylinder engine operates on four cylinders when full power is unnecessary – reducing fuel consumption,” says Sheed.

“We have a clear understanding of what our customers are looking for and have seen that performance is a key consideration.

“Audi will continue bringing performance to the fore this year with some new arrivals such as the newly landed S3 Sedan, and the soon to arrive S3 Cabriolet, as well as the anticipated S1 Sportback,” says Sheed.
