Munich (dpa) - The Audi group sold 4.6 per cent more cars worldwide in February than during the same month last year, the German company announced at its headquarters on Monday.

The carmaker said the increase was due to demand in China and the US.

Worldwide, the Audi group sold 131,000 cars in February - a third of them in China. Chinese demand for the German cars grew by 22 per cent compared with the previous year, when a dispute with Chinese dealers was hampering trade.

Among the best-selling vehicles in February were the SUV models Q2 and Q5. Large utility vehicles in general accounted for 37 per cent of sales.

"Still to come this year is the introduction of two new prestige models, the Q8 and the Audi e-tron," said sales executive Bram Schot.

In the US, sales were up 12 per cent. More than half of all American customers purchased an SUV, Audi said.

In Europe, however, the carmaker saw a decline in sales: In Germany, they shrank by 11 per cent, and in France by 21.5 per cent.

In Britain, Audi sales grew by 17 per cent, with the Q2 and Q5 SUV models proving especially popular.
