Audi's China sales topped BMW, Mercedes in May

Audi AG's sales in China jumped percent to 36,278 cars last month, putting it ahead of rivals BMW and Mercedes.

BMW-brand sales rose nearly 31 percent to 25,500 units, while Mercedes-Benz sales inched up 0.8 percent to 16,529 units in the same period, both companies said on Tuesday.

In the first five months, Audi's Chinese sales were up 42 percent to 160,562, while BMW-brand sales rose 34 percent to 125,800 vehicles. Mercedes sales grew nearly 9 percent to 82,534 units.

The sales race between the three premium carmakers extends beyond the Chinese market. The German automakers are locked in a global battle to determine who can sell the most vehicles.

Audi is targeting annual sales of 2 million cars by 2020 as it seeks to pass BMW, which is currently the best-selling premium brand worldwide.

Last year, the BMW brand sold 1.4 million cars and SUVs. Audi sold 1.3 million units, while Mercedes-Benz sold 1.26 million.
