Audi have now in effect become a mass market new car manufacturer.
(PRWEB UK) 25 September 2013
Audi have now in effect become a mass market new car manufacturer by the sheer number of vehicles it is now selling in these 40 countries.
The affects on UK buyers however has been negative in regards to extremely long lead times as the factory struggles to keep up in demand.
An example is the Audi Q5 was the best selling new car for AutoeBid.com earlier this year however sue to outstanding new car deals available through the site and over demand delivery times are not pushing 6 months plus. This in turn is pushing up demand for used Q5’s however the stock for these is also somewhat limited.
While Audi have gained significant ground in the rest of Europe, in the UK according to the SMMT none of Audi’s models made it into the top 10 most registered cars for August 2013.
UK best sellers in August 2013 Volume
1 Fiesta 3289
2 Astra 2428
3 Golf 2233

6 1 Series 1927
7 Qashqai 1875
8 3 Series 1517

10 Insignia 1147
It must be said the top 10 registered cars in the UK are distorted by fleet vehicle with many going to rental companies and large fleets and do not reflect the buying habits of the general public or AutoeBid’s clients as reflected in the table below.
