The Audi Group once again set records for deliveries, revenue and key earnings data in the fiscal year 2011. The brand with the four rings sold more than 1.3 million cars in the past year, at the same time increasing revenue to €44.1 billion. Operating profit for the Audi Group rose to over €5.3 billion in the past fiscal year. The operating return on sales climbed from 9.4 to 12.1 percent.

Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of AUDI AG: "Never before have we had such a large increase in deliveries in a single year. 2011 was the most successful year in the history of our company. We want to continue on this path in 2012 and grow more strongly than the market as a whole." Experts expect the overall car market worldwide to grow by around 4 percent this year.

2011 was a record year for Audi with regard to all key performance indicators. For example, the number of Audi vehicles delivered increased by 19.2 percent or approximately 210,000 to 1,302,659 (2010: 1,092,411). Company revenue increased at a much higher rate than sales, by 24.4 percent to €44.1 (35.4) billion.
