Audi to hit two million sales goal by 2020?



With help from revamped models and new sport-utility vehicles, Audi could reach its goal of 2 million sales a year before its 2020 target.

Audi sold 11 percent more vehicles last year, a record 1.74 million, and has delivered double-digit percentage increases in four of the past five years. Updates to the top-selling A4 sedan, flagship Q7 SUV and R8 sports car will fuel demand this year.

Sales in January and February this year should be fueled by “very good” orders in late 2014, offsetting declining demand in Russia, Japan and Latin America.

In the United States, the world’s largest market for premium cars, Audi is pursuing a long-term goal of 300,000 deliveries after a 2018 target of 200,000 sales moved within reach last year.
