Audi announced that it has earned a revenue of 44.6 billion euros in the first three quarters of 2022, hence observing a growth of 10.4 per cent year on year despite geopolitical crises and strained supply chains. Audi's operating profit also touched 6.2 billion euros which exceeded the luxury automaker's preceding year's level.

Audi, in the first nine months, delivered 12,12,275 vehicles compared to 13,54,587 units last year. This year-on-year decline has been attributed to ongoing supply bottlenecks and challenges in the logistics chain. The company informed that in spite of these challenges, the brand managed to increase deliveries by almost 12 per cent in the third quarter which is 4,08,430 vehicles. Chairman of the board of management of Audi AG Markus Duesmann said, “After nine months that were characterized by geopolitical uncertainties and ongoing disruptions in the supply chains, our operating profit demonstrates the strength of our brand group."
