Volkswagen’s premium brand Audi thinks of doubling sales in China during the coming six years, sales chief Bram Schot informed Automobilwoche.
“In 2023 we want to sell 1.2 million cars in China,” the German trade magazine quoted Schot as saying.
In 2017, Audi sold 597,000 vehicles in China, its biggest single market.
The company last year resolved a dispute with dealers of the country that could have disrupted the luxury automaker’s business in the world’s biggest auto market.
The dispute came from a long-term partnership between Audi and SAIC Motor that had riled Audi store operators in China, who among others sell Chinese-made vehicles as part of Audi’s present joint venture with China’s FAW Corp.
Schot stated Audi would keep working with both SAIC and FAW.
