TAIPEI -- German car manufacturer Audi, eying the potential for sales growth in northern Taiwan, has started to build a new showroom in Hsinchu City, the company said yesterday.
Audi sold 1,182 cars in Taiwan in the first six months of the year, up 252 percent from the same period of last year, representing the highest sales since the company entered Taiwan, the company's Taiwan office said.
The company's global car sales rose about 19 percent in the same period.
Upbeat about demand in the local luxury car market, Audi Taiwan said it plans to expand its sales locations in the country and to launch new large luxury car models by the end of this year.
The 4,300-square-meter facility is expected to be completed by the end of November and to become the ninth established by the company in Taiwan.
