2012 Was Record-Breaking Year for Audi

Volkswagen's (NASDAQOTH: VLKAY  ) high-end Audi unit has reported record delivery figures for 2012. Audi sold nearly 1.46 million vehicles during the year, a 12% increase over 2011's tally. That figure, the highest in the unit's history, also exceeded its target of 1.4 million announced last summer.

Audi ascribed its robust showing to the popularity of new models such as the Q3 crossover SUV and the A6 Avant sedan, both of which were introduced at the end of 2011.

In terms of regions, Audi said it achieved a new sales record in every month last year in the U.S. All told, deliveries there in 2012 grew nearly 19% on a year-over-year basis to total more than 139,000 cars.
