Corona pandemic: AUDI AG takes stock after difficult first quarter

Against the backdrop of the ongoing corona pandemic, Audi is taking stock after a difficult first quarter of 2020. Due to lockdowns and closed dealerships worldwide, deliveries of Audi-brand cars fell by 21.1 percent in the first three months of this year. The Audi Group’s revenue amounted to €12,454 million and its operating return on sales was 0.1 percent. Despite the difficult economic conditions, a net cash flow of approximately €1 billion was achieved. In view of the financial impact of the corona pandemic, Audi had taken early countermeasures to safeguard its liquidity. Furthermore, the cash flow was boosted by the sale within the VW Group of AEV GmbH. In order to protect its employees and in response to demand and supply-chain-factors, production was temporarily suspended worldwide and short-time working was introduced at the plants in Germany. Production in China is already largely back to normal. The Audi plants in Europe have been gradually ramping up production according to a fixed plan since the end of April. The Audi Group expects the corona pandemic to have a significant impact on the global economy and car markets over the full year, and currently assumes that deliveries of the Audi core brand, revenue and operating profit will be well below the prior-year levels.

Charging capacity vs. charging speed: What constitutes high charging performance

With its e-tron** and e-tron Sportback** models, Audi is making electric mobility a reality for long-distance driving – thanks in part to a charging curve that is unique in the competitive environment. Drivers of a fully electric Audi model thus benefit from high charging speeds because the charging capacity of up to 150 kW is available for a large portion of the charging procedure. This enables sophisticated thermal management of the lithium-ion battery. In order to assess the everyday usability of an electric car, customers should take not just the nominal maximum charging capacity but also the charging speed into account.
