Audi reported that its February 2016 sales increased 2.3% to 11,718 vehicles, a total that stands as the brand's 62nd straight month of record U.S. sales.

February results were bolstered by sales of the A7 and Q7 models. The A7 posted an 87% increase from last February. Consumer demand for the all-new Audi Q7 remained high, resulting in a 63% increase over last February. Year-to-date sales of this luxury SUV model rose 111% over the same time period in 2015.
"There is robust demand for models at the top end of our lineup, such as the A7 and Q7," said Mark Del Rosso, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Audi of America. "This gives us confidence that our sales momentum will continue with the upcoming launches of the all-new A4 and R8 this spring."
