Audi managed to reach another milestone in their long run, managing to go over the 3.000.000 mark for their A3 flagship vehicle.
The number counts over all the generations, and since there are no plans to stir things up, more milestones will definitely be achieved by the A3.
Starting in 1996, the first generation of Audi A3s managed to sell 913.000 units, which is quite a lot, considering the smaller markets. After 2003, the second generation kicked in and Audi sold somewhere close to 2.000.000. With 2012 and the launch of the third generation of the A3, Audi finally managed to get to the 3 million mark.
“With the Audi A3, we have created a new brand segment – we have been setting standards in the compact class with innovative technology and first-class quality for 17 years now” stated Frank Dreves. With the Audi A3 currently being sold 117 countries, the milestones will keep rolling in.
