Worldwide, Audi deliveries totalled 1.845 million cars in 2019, an increase of 1.8 per cent year-on-year.
Despite political and economic uncertainty and the residual impact of the transition to the new WLTP emissions regime, the contribution by Audi UK to this total remained significant at 138,924 cars, a reduction of around 3 per cent versus 2019.
The brand is currently engaged in the most ambitious new model launch initiative in its history, and is already making considerable headway with its range-wide electrification roadmap.
Five plug-in hybrid versions of core models made their world debuts during 2019 as part of the nascent TFSI e range, while the fully electric e-tron SUV laid the foundations for an e-tron model portfolio which by year-end will also expand to include new coupé-inspired e-tron Sportback and e-tron GT sports car variants.
The broad-based electrification programme will be underpinned by planned investment of approximately €12 billion over the next five years as part of an overall fund covering research, development, property, plant and equipment totalling €37 billion.
