Audi, the German luxury car manufacturer, today announced a growth of 82 per cent in its sales at 1,011 vehicles in September this year.

The company had recorded a sales of 555 units in the same month last year.

"Our performance in September has been stellar. We have witnessed a record month with 1,011 vehicles sold, our highest ever in India so far," Mr Michael Perschke, Head, Audi India, said in a statement.

Audi sold 6,417 units in January-September 2012, recording a 52 per cent growth over 4210 units in the same period previous year.

"We are confident of crossing the 2012 sales target of 8,000 cars even before the year comes to an end. We have had a very exciting 9 months in 2012 and our robust car sales amid the taxing market scenario highlights the conviction our brand enthusiasts have put in Audi," Mr Perschke said.

He said the Q-life range - Audi Q3, Q5 and Q7, continue to strengthen their leadership in the luxury SUV segment and are emerging as the top-sellers this festive season.

Meanwhile, Mr Perschke said increasing input costs, inflation and weakening of the rupee forced the company to increase prices of Audi Q3.

"We are also evaluating price increases for other models in the later part of the year," he said.
