The Audi Forum Ingolstadt

Audi stands for sporty vehicles, high build quality and progressive design – for “Vorsprung durch Technik.” Founded in 1899 as Horch & Cie. Motorwagen-Werke by August Horch, today the company is among the world’s leading producers of premium cars. The company’s innovation capability is one reason behind its success. Audi has always had a tradition of making automotive history: from quattro permanent all-wheel drive, through lightweight construction based on the aluminum Audi Space Frame, to present-day models capable of automated driving. The first all-electric series-production Audi e-tron has been officially in production at Audi Brussels since September 2018 – on the world’s first carbon-neutral volume automotive production line in the premium segment. Audi believes sustainable action starts with the procurement process and extends right up to the recycling of the vehicle. The company is active in more than 100 markets worldwide and is growing continuously. AUDI AG delivered around 1.812.500 new Audi brand cars to customers during 2018. The company currently employs 90,000 people worldwide, of which over 60,000 are employed at the German sites in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm.

    Financial year 2019: AUDI AG achieves its financial targets and sets a course for long-term competitiveness

    Audi steered a steady course through a challenging 2019 financial year. The car manufacturer systematically reduced its WLTP inventories and achieved slightly higher deliveries for the Audi brand than in the previous year in a highly competitive environment. Revenue of €55.7 billion reflects the high demand for SUVs and top-end models. Operating profit and operating return on sales reached €4.5 billion and 8.1 percent. The Audi Transformation Plan (ATP) contributed €2.5 billion in the 2019 financial year. Significantly strengthened spending and investment discipline are reflected by the improved return on investment (12.7 percent). Audi is pushing ahead with its electrification initiative with numerous electric models this year. The company is intensifying the synergies with the Volkswagen Group now also in software development. Against the backdrop of the spread of the coronavirus and the unclear effects on the economy, the manufacturer sees major challenges in the year 2020 and is focusing on the health of employees worldwide and on the liquidity and stability of the business.
