Audi AG, the luxury car maker owned by Volkswagen AG, said Tuesday that its sales in China rose 25 per cent in 2007 compared with a year earlier.

The Ingolstadt-based company said it sold 101,996 cars in China, including Hong Kong, compared to 81,708 cars in 2006.

The sales figures included Audi cars produced in China and those imported from Germany. Demand was highest for its A6 and A4 models.

``This result is a major success for us, and it confirms Audi as the market leader in the premium segment in China,'' said Ralph Weyler, who oversees marketing and sales for the automaker. ``This makes China the biggest export market for Audi. And we expect further increases in sales figures for 2008.''

He said the automaker is ready to launch the R8, A5 and S5 in China this year, through its network of 125 Audi dealerships in 85 cities.
