Audi Reaches 1.5 Million Unit Sales Target Two Years Early

Audi reaches sales goal early

Audi is the luxury brand owned by the Volkswagen auto group. Audi has a sales goal of reaching 1.5 million vehicles yearly by 2015. Volkswagen is now saying that Audi would hit that sales target of 1.5 million cars during 2013.

That means the Audi brand is reaching its goal two years early. One fact that's helped Audi reach its goal so early is strong deliveries in China and the United States. Audi increased sales for the first half of 2013 by 6.4% growing to 780,500 units.

That puts Audi only 24,000 units behind segment leader BMW. Audi is currently the world's second-largest premium automaker and Audi wants reach 2 million unit sales by 2020. If it can reach that goal it will become the world's largest luxury automaker.

Tesla Model S now the least-stolen car in the US

Aug 28 2014 6:10pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: EV/Plug-in, Green Culture, Tesla Motors When is a Honda Accord more appealing than a Tesla Model S? When you're a thief. The Accord continues to reign as the most-stolen car in the US but the Model S is now claiming a new and interesting title: the least-stolen car in America. Last year, it wasn't even on the list. Of course, sometimes a Model S is stolen and the most famous case ended ...

No Rebellion Girl: Dodge Launches “Don’t Touch My Dart” Campaign, Watch them All Here

Aug 28 2014 5:24pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

At some point in Dodge’s recent history, somebody in creative had no real idea what to do with the company’s vehicles, so presumably announced, “Hey! I got it! Let’s just sell to flatbillers and middle-aged Harley riders!” Fist-bumps and high-fives presumably spread through Auburn Hills like wildfire. While that tack might work a treat with vehicles like the raucous Challenger SRT Hellcat, casting a decidedly Caucasian/ma ...

What BMW Selleth, BMW Refuseth to Take Back: The Unsellable, Undrivable, Zero-Emission eBay BMW i8

Aug 28 2014 1:28pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Let’s say someone were to offer to sell you a car a lot like the one you want, but with some key differences—this one doesn’t have an engine or a transmission and is instead a fiberglass shell shaped to look like a real car. It does, however, sit upon a welded tube-frame cart with casters so that you can push it around, perhaps making fun driving noises, and it has working headlamps and real brake rotors and tires. (No word as to whether the lamps were laser-lit.) That deal ...

Roam If You Want To: 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Full Pricing Out

Aug 28 2014 1:09pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The formula for the Jeep Grand Cherokee is pretty straightforward: Mix four-doors and (usually) four-wheel drive with a family-size vehicle and a reasonably comfortable and well-appointed interior.

First Look: 2015 Volvo XC90

Aug 28 2014 8:32am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN — All too often, a car that’s billed as being all-new really is not — the majority of it may have been tweaked or reworked, but seldom is it overhauled from bumper to bumper. The Volvo XC90 is the exception that makes the rule. Everything from the styling to the platform and powertrain choices is totally new, as is the company’s infotainment system. Stylistically, the new XC90 will not be mistaken for anything other than a Volvo ...
