Audi May Sell Next Version of A1 Car in U.S.

September 21, 2009

HERNDON, VA - Audi may sell the next version of its new A1 compact car in the U.S. to challenge BMW's Mini, German news source Handelsblatt reported, citing Peter Schwarzenbauer, the head of sales.

The move, following the model's introduction in Europe in mid-2010, would be part of Ingolstadt, Germany-based Audi's plan to surpass BMW and Daimler AG's Mercedes-Benz in all markets worldwide by 2015, Handelsblatt said. Audi aims in the next two to three years to sell more than 100,000 cars in the U.S., where BMW already delivers 270,000 vehicles, the newspaper reported.

    In the midst of the challenging economic auto sales environment, Kelley Blue Book, one of the most trusted names in automobile appraisal, has done something pretty smart when they decided to launch a car buying website. Trusted Marketplace, as it's called, could probably rival Autotrader if handled right, and since its run by Kelley Blue Book the service will already have a pedigree in place that will help tremendously. An online car purchase, or at least scouting on dealership websites, is an increasingly popular practice, and a person can save a lot of money on purchasing an auto, and a person would be surprised at the deals within just a half hour of driving.
