FRANKFURT (Reuters) – Markus Duesmann, Audi’s Chairman of the Board of Management, expects lower sales in 2020 despite strong numbers in the months of July, August and September, according to the industry newspaper Automobilwoche on Sunday.
“We will not be able to compensate worldwide the heavy losses of the months of April and May in the full year, despite our distributors doing a really good job,” Duesmann said.
September had been the best month of the year across global operations for the premium car brand.
China was looking especially outstanding so that Duesmann believed it will end up showing a slight sales plus in 2020.
