Germany October 2011: Audi A1 hits highest position yet UPDATED

Audi A1

* NOW UPDATED with the Top 307 (all) best-selling models: click on this article's title! *

New car sales in Germany are up just 0.6% year-on-year in October at 258,253 registrations, with the 2011 year-to-date total still up a very healthy 10% at 2,659,989 units. The podium is unchanged vs. September with the VW Golf/Plus/Jetta leader at 8.5% share, followed by the VW Passat at 3.3% and the Mercedes C Class at 2.9%.

The VW Polo and Opel Astra are both up 2 spots at #4 and #5 respectively, recovering from a weak September. Still in excellent shape, the Mercedes A Class ranks 6th with 6,036 sales and 2.3% and is now #20 year-to-date. Audi A4 (+1), Mercedes E Class (+3) and Ford Fiesta (+3) also progress. While there are 3 Mercedes in the Top 8, there is now BMW in the Top 10 for the second month in a row, with the BMW 3 Series (#15) and 1 Series (#16) slowly ramping up thanks to the new generations now in dealerships.

Audi Q3

The performer of the month is the Audi A1: exactly one year after its launch and after a relatively shy showing throughout 2011, the mini Audi hits its highest position in Germany yet in October at #23 with 2,977 sales and 1.2%, also its highest share ever in the country and only its third time above 1%...

Notice also the Ford C-Max up 29 spots to #24, the Hyundai i10 up 32 spots to an excellent 28th place (1st foreign model this month if you consider Skoda and Seat local), the Renault Twingo up 10 ranks to #30, the BMW X3 strong again at #33 (vs. #46 year-to-date), the Peugeot 308 up 20 spots to #41 and the Nissan Micra up 7 ranks to #44.

Further down the ranking, the new generation Chevrolet Aveo is up 50 spots on September to #56, the new Kia Picanto is up 48 ranks to #77 and the Audi Q3 breaks into the German Top 100 for the first time at #96 with 642 sales and 0.2%. The Lamborghini Aventador sells its very first unit in Germany this month.

      Hi Ducu, you are looking at the October 2011 ranking. At that time the Peugeot 208 had not launched yet.

    I wish we got the Audi A1 in the US.

    … I think the same. The Delta is a nice car and deserves better sales.

    It’s so sad to see Lancia sell so poorly over there…

  9. November 20th, 2011 at 03:05 | #10

    Have you already driven one?????? Excellent handling, perfomant?????? I did, and tell you is quite poor compared to a Mini cooper or Alfa mito. The steering is too ligth and misses precision, the engine is not very smooth, the interior is cramped there´s no space mainly in the rear, fuel economy is only average and the brakes are not there.

    The Ford Fiesta is up too. Bravo!

  11. November 20th, 2011 at 02:59 | #12

    Well, to me the Audi A1 is simply horrinble in terms of style!!! I´ll never buy one.

    affordable pricing?? compared to what?? to an audi a7 probably.. but its nearly double the price of the polo on which is based and its by far the ugliest audi

    Audi A1 thoroughly deserves that spot with its many highlighting features including steady performance, excellent handling, decent fuel economy rating, and affordable pricing.
