The Audi Group stays strong while the auto industry struggles.
The Audi Group, consisting of Audi, Bentley, Lamborghini, and Ducati, has good news to share when it comes to the financial numbers the group has achieved in the first half of the year. The group was able to deliver a total of 797,587 cars to customers in the first six months of the year, and while that’s down from 2021’s number of 986,567 number, that comes as a result of the ongoing semiconductor crisis and lockdowns still being in place in China. Despite this, both Lamborghini and Bentley increased sales.
One of the most important parts of these results is the fact that electric vehicles continue to be a successful venture for Audi. 50,033 electric vehicles were delivered compared to 2021’s number for the same period, 32,775. The Audi Q4 e-tron grew significantly in sales, and now, electric vehicles account for 6.3 percent of Audi’s sales. Total revenues increased compared to the first half of 2021, with a total of €29.9 billion euros compared to €29.2 billion last year, and the consolidation of Bentley since January 1 contributed greatly to this. Along with that, the period’s operating profit of €4.933 billion marks a new all-time high for the group, representing a 58.5 percent increase compared to last year’s number of €3.113 billion. Based on these strong results, Audi Group plans on continuing its success and finishing the second half of the year strong, with total deliveries of 1.8 to 1.9 million vehicles, and with the amazing lineup of vehicles from Audi, Lamborghini, Bentley and Ducati, their success will mean exciting new cars on our roads.
