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 written automotive history with its quattro permanent all-wheel drive, with lightweight construction using the aluminum Audi Space Frame (ASF) and now piloted driving. The company is active in more than 100 markets worldwide and is growing continuously. In 2016 the Audi Group delivered 1,871,350 Audi brand cars to customers. The company currently employs 88,000 people worldwide, of which more than 60,000 are employed at the German sites in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm.

    Tech Day Quality

    Quality is a core competence of the brand with the four rings. To inspire with quality leadership in the premium segment is Audi’s aspiration with regard to the mobility of the future. Audi customers have expectations for the function, comfort, value and reliability of their cars that are every bit as great as those of people using premium mobility and other services – and that will hold even more true in the future.

    Audi.Vorsprung.2025

    On the way to becoming the premium digital car company, Audi has launched the biggest transformation in its corporate history. The brand is becoming digital throughout and sustainably economical in order to redefine urban mobility. The Fourth Industrial Revolution is disruptive. Every market player is duty bound to invent something completely new from the ground up. Otherwise, there’s a risk of being left behind by the competition; not least by those who have only recently emerged onto the mobility market with new approaches, services and ideas. Just how inspired Audi is by this challenge can be seen in Barcelona. It reflects the very essence of the company and its employees. Vorsprung is in Audi’s DNA – it describes the approach that the company has always taken when driving forward its activities. An approach that Audi will also continue to pursue in the future, ensuring customers are offered solutions that create Vorsprung for them too.
