Audi with key strategic decisions and solid performance
Key strategic decisions, such as the opening of our first automobile plant in North America and the healthy volume development of our vehicles influenced our business performance in 2016. The Company increased deliveries of the core brand Audi by 3.6 percent to a new record level of 1,867,738 (1,803,246) cars. Also as a result of this development in volume, the revenue of the Audi Group increased by 1.5 percent to EUR 59,317 (58,420) million.
The operating return on sales was impacted by special items especially in connection with the diesel issue. Before special items, we achieved our strategic target with an operating return on sales of 8.2 percent. At the same time, we also invested in the ongoing expansion of our model and technology portfolio and in our international manufacturing structures in the 2016 fiscal year.
