Frankfurt: German carmaker Audi AG said Monday its unit sales for May declined 6%, as the recession continued to affect demand, despite strong sales gains in the Asia-Pacific region.
The Ingolstadt-based company, a subsidiary of Volkswagen AG, said it sold 82,800 cars in May, compared with 88,168 a year ago.
Audi said despite the overall decline in sales, it was able to achieve higher market shares in European countries outside Germany and in the US.
Furthermore, Audi had another record month in China, which helped drive sales in the Asia-Pacific region 24% higher to 15,650 cars sold for the month, compared to 12,607 in May a year ago.
