Audi Sold 66% More EVs in the First Three Months of 2022

In the first three months of 2022, Audi sold 66% more electric vehicles than in the same period of 2021.

  • Audi sold 24,236 EVs in this period

  • EVs represented 6.3% of the brand’s total sales

  • This is despite global sales falling by 16.8%

The increasing popularity of electric vehicles is leading to an interesting trend in automaker’s sales figures.

Indeed, many automakers who have published their sales reports for the first three months of the year show electric car sales that have skyrocketed compared to 2021, despite global sales falling by 10 to 20%.

Audi is no exception. In fact, the German automaker announced sales of 24,236 electric vehicles, which is 66% higher than in the same period of 2021, despite its overall sales being 16.8% lower, at 385,084.

The reasons given by Audi for the general slump are the ever-ongoing supply shortages and the recent Covid-related lockdowns in China, where the automaker assembles and sells a lot of vehicles each year.

Electric sales are fairing much better, but they have also recently decreased, since the highwater mark for Audi EVs was set in the last quarter of 2021, when 29,100 units found a buyer.

Despite this, the automaker is confident the situation will soon be rectified and its goal to introduce close to 20 new electric models in the next three years will help it attract more EV buyers than ever.

Furthermore, every model introduced after 2026 will be exclusively powered by electricity following 18-billion-euro investments in electrification until then.

Among its current offering, the brand new Q4 e-Tron and Q4 e-Tron Sportback have been the most popular, with a combined 10,700 units sold. The e-Tron and the e-Tron Sportback are next with 10,300 sales and then the e-Tron GT and RS e-Tron GT sports car rounded up to total with around 3,200 deliveries.
