Huge increase in April sales figures for 3 of the top car manufacturers
As seen in previous months, the trend of increasing car sales remains consistent. Many car manufactures are seeing massive increases in sales as compared to the same month in 2009. While 2009 was obviously a very difficult year for all consumers, not just in the motor industry, with the difficulties of the recession effecting many industries. It is still a welcome sight to see some of the well known brands showing large sales figures and a reviving industry.
As one of the major players in the car industry world wide, Mercedes-Benz has once again showed impressive sales figures for the previous month. Compared to the April 2009 figures, Merc have shown a 21% increase in sales in the USA. The front-runner for Mercedes was the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which is noted as being a gateway to the Merc brand for younger and first time buyers.
Not to be out-done in the US market, Audi have themselves shown a substantial increase in sales compared to the same month of 2009. Audi increased their sales figures by a massive 33%, this was largely thanks to a rise in popularity of the Audi Q5 and the Audi A5 Cabriolet. Further adding to the strong figures is the Audi A3 which has increased in popularity since the TDI version was named the 2010 Green car of the year.
As always seems to be the case, whatever the other top German car makers can do, VW can do better. Volkswagen's US sales figures came out at a staggering 42% increase compared to the same month in 2009. Along with these amazing figures, Volkswagen has also noted its 10th consecutive month of increased growth, which is a truly impressive statistic and it is clear that VW is doing something right, if not many things. For VW it wasn't one or two particular models that showed impressive increases in sales but rather almost all of them, which combined to reach this massive overall growth.
