Audi reported total sales of 186,875 vehicles in 2022, a decrease of 5% from the previous year’s figure of 196,038. However, the company’s electric car sales saw a significant increase, with a 47% rise from 10,985 in 2021 to 16,177 in 2022.
In 2022, Audi launched the Q4 e-tron and Q4 e-tron Sportback, two new electric SUVs. While a few deliveries of these vehicles were made in 2021, they were primarily “launch preparation vehicles” and actual customer deliveries began in earnest in 2022.
This is reflected in the significant year-over-year increase in Q4 e-tron deliveries, which went from 45 in 2021 to 1,872 in 2022, a jump of 4,060%.
Audi’s Q4 e-tron Sportback saw a significant increase in sales from 19 deliveries in 2021 to 541 in 2022, a 2,747% year-over-year increase.
This was due in part to the decline in sales of the original e-tron SUV, which saw 1,145 deliveries in 2022 compared to 1,981 the previous year, as some customers opted for the smaller and more affordable Q4 e-tron instead.
Despite this, overall sales of Audi’s electric offerings increased and sales of most of the company’s gas offerings decreased, with the exception of the A3, A5, and Q5.
However, Audi’s fourth quarter 2021 results were impacted by supply chain challenges, resulting in 33,184 sales, a 46.9% decrease year-over-year. On the other hand, the e-tron saw an 86.2% increase, going from 1,064 deliveries in 2020 to 1,981 in 2021.
