Today is a big day for Audi’s Ingolstadt factory. The facility has assembled the 1 millionth Q5 SUV. The anniversary unit is a SQ5 model and it is painted in Sepang Blue. The unit was ordered by a family in Germany.
The Audi Q5 started its life in 2008 when it was the second model in the Q line-up after the Q7. In eight years of life, Q5 managed to become a good model for Audi. Globally, the Germans have sold more than 1.6 million units, including the examples produced in China and India for the respective local markets.
The Audi Q5 is sold in more than 100 countries and it is a strong seller despite its age. In 2015, Audi sold 266.968 units worldwide, compared to the 247.446 units in 2014. But the market will start to say No! and Audi needs a new model. According to the rumors, the second generation Audi Q5 will see the light in 2018.Source: Audi
