As a result of updated measurement assumptions for the settlement agreements relating to the V6 3.0 TDI diesel issue in North America, Audi recognized additional provisions of €387 million in 2017. After these special items, operating profit amounted to €4.7 billion and the operating return on sales was 7.8 percent. In 2018, Audi will launch more new models than ever before and will enter the age of electric mobility. In view of the ambitious management of multiple model launches and phase-outs, the company anticipates another challenging year, before the model initiative should have a sustained positive impact on deliveries and earnings from 2019 onwards. Audi is investing massively in the future and is applying a comprehensive program of measures to pave the way for the profitable restructuring of its business model in line with the “Audi. Vorsprung. 2025” strategy.
