FRANKFURT (Reuters) -- Audi's global sales in November rose 7 percent to 132,050 units compared with the same month a year earlier as robust deliveries in China and the United States helped offset losses in Europe.

Demand for the A3 compact and Q3 and Q5 SUVs helped boost deliveries, Audi said.

Luca de Meo, Audi’s sales boss, said in a statement today that through November and part of December Audi has already "exceeded the prior-year sales total of 1.455 million deliveries."

He added that he expects Audi to finish the year with a new all-time high of 1.5 million sales, reaching that target a year ahead of schedule.

Audi's new long-term target is to sell 2 million cars a year globally by 2020.

The brand's China sales were up 18 percent last month to 44,334, while U.S. sales grew 13 percent to 13,636. European sales dipped 2 percent to 57,750.
