Audi Group makes healthy profit despite semi-conductor crisis – forecast for 2021 adjusted

Following record figures in the first half of the year, the third quarter is characterized above all by the crisis in semiconductors.

From January to September, the number of deliveries, revenue, operating profit, profit before tax and above all net cash flow are higher than in the previous year, which was affected by the corona pandemic. As expected, however, the ongoing shortage of semi-conductors had an effect on volumes and financial results in the third quarter.

With sharpened design, particularly in the front and rear, and innovative technologies, Audi is ensuring the increased presence and sporty elegance of the A8, the trailblazer in the premium segment. For that reason, the company with the four rings is even more intensively working out the confident and progressive character of the active luxury sedan.
Audi has made the already legendary five-cylinder even better. The result is greater torque, greater pull, greater top speed. And the whole thing topped off with an unmistakable sound. These are the features that power the latest generations of the Audi RS 3 Sportback and RS 3 Sedan to the top of the compact segment. The torque splitter, used for the first time in an Audi, also plays a part in this, providing greater lateral dynamics and stability. The more expressive design combined with RS-specific controls turns the latest RS 3 models into premium sports cars suitable for everyday use.
The quattro is a legend, a sure-fire sale, and trailblazer all at once. As an integral part of Audi’s “Vorsprung durch Technik” DNA, the drive system is the bridge to the future. The five-cylinder engine is just as closely linked to Audi's history as it is to the racing heritage of the brand with the four rings. Both the permanent all-wheel drive and the engine that still arouses emotions today are the focus of the quattro moments experience drive, in which Audi is looking back and ahead at locations steeped in history – the Col de Turini in the French Maritime Alps and San Romolo in Italy. Join us for a look at 40 years of the quattro experience and learn how Audi is powering into the electric future with the all-wheel drive and continuing its long tradition of high-performance engines with the latest development stage of the five-cylinder.
