Audi drives into Cambodia

audi showroomGerman luxury car manufacturer Audi has expanded into Cambodia, joining the recent entry of higher-end automobile producers into a small but growing market, the Phnom Penh Post  reported.

Audi AG appointed Automotive Asia (Cambodia) Ltd as its official distributor in the country. The company is a subsidiary of Automotive Asia, the Audi importer in Vietnam. Sales will start in mid-2014 after a 2,200-square-meter showroom and workshop has been built on Monivong Boulevard.

Cambodia’s small luxury car market has already attracted other brands. While Mercedes has been present in Cambodia for a long time, BMW opened a showroom in Phnom Penh earlier in November through a contract with Cambodia’s Royal Group, and Porsche announced plans to open a full sales, service and spare parts facility by mid-2014.

Data from the Ministry of Commerce show that Cambodia imported 440,318 vehicles, including motorbikes, in the first six months of 2013, down 17.8 per cent compared to same period of 2012.
