However, at look at the models reveals a dramatic picture for some models. Golf went down 64%, Jetta SportWagen sank 99.9%, the total number of Jetta decreased 29.5%, Beetle Coupe decreased 49.6%, Passat was also down 60.4%, and Touareg sank 31,3%.

Some bright points are Tiguan with 87,7% better sales and e-Golf with 96,6% increase but a very small overall number, about 4,000 vehicles in total.

The November sales results reflect the impact of the recent stop-sale for all 2.0L 4-cylinder TDI vehicles as well as for the 3.0L V6.

Audi reported that its November 2015 sales increased 0.4% to 16,700 vehicles, a total that stands as the brand’s 59th straight month of record U.S. sales.

Through the first 11 months of 2015, Audi U.S. sales rose 11.7% from last year to 181,803 vehicles, which is only 208 units short of what Audi sold in an entire year in 2014.
