Report: Audi on track to surpass Mercedes in global sales

. Monday, December 12, 2011

According to a recent report by Automotive News Europe, Audi is poised to surpass rival Mercedes-Benz in global sales for the first time in company history. It's noted that Audi is currently outpacing Mercedes by over 56,500 vehicles sold and will likely take the number two spot behind BMW in global premium car sales. While BMW may still be king of the hill, the gap is narrowing. Audi expects to sell a total 1.3 million vehicles in 2011, nipping at Bimmer's target of 1.6 million vehicles sold (which includes Mini and Rolls-Royce brands).
