For the first time in history of car sales, Audi AG has reported that their sales number worldwide for the first quarter of 2010 has exceeded those of Mercedes Benz. Mercedes has sold 248 500 new vehicles, while Audi scored very well on the market and sold as much as 264 100 new vehicles, which is 25.9 % increase in sales from the last year sales in the same period (Q1 2009).

The first quarter of 2010 has been a record breaking for the Audi. Audi is clear with its plans and where it is heading now. Speaking with numbers, their goal is 1.5 millions of units per year, and winning the title “best selling premium luxury brand in the world” by 2015.

On a global level, in the category of premium brands for the year of 2009, Audi AG held the 3rd place behind BMW at 1st and Mercedes Benz at 2nd place. However BMW has not yet released complete sales results for the Q1, 2010, and there is a possibility for Audi to even take 1st place for the first three months of 2009.
According to all the analysis, increase in Audi sales happened partly due to their domination in the Chinese market, where more than 51 449 sales has been recorded in the first quarter this year. Mercedes Benz sold just 24 100 and BMW AG sold 34 179 vehicles in that same Chinese market.
