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 plans to offer more than 20 all-electric models by 2025 and aims to push ahead with a significant expansion of the plug-in-hybrid portfolio. The Audi e‐tron Charging Service provides convenient access to over 248,000 charging points in 26 EU countries. 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 1,692,773 new Audi brand cars to customers during 2020. The company currently employs about 87,000 people worldwide, of which over 60,000 are employed at the German sites in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm.

    Audi Hungaria: “smart logistics” with driverless transport system

    Audi Hungaria is constantly making efforts to introduce digital solutions in both manufacturing and logistics. The latest example of this is their collaboration with Jungheinrich, in which six driverless transport vehicles were put into operation in the field of 2.0-litre four-cylinder Otto engine production. FTFs deliver various engine parts from the logistics area straight to the production line. They automatically stop at 57 stations during their journey of more than 1,000 metres, which allows for particularly efficient and reliable material transport.

    Successful first half-year for Audi: record deliveries and strong profits

    A healthy result after six months: the Audi Group achieved a successful half-year performance in spite of a critical situation with semi-conductor supplies. From January to June the company delivered 981,681 automobiles to customers worldwide, thus concluding the best first half in the history of Audi. The positive trend in volume is also reflected in the financial performance: sales revenue amounted to €29.2 billion. An operating profit of €3.1 billion testifies to high customer demand, a strong sales performance, and continued cost discipline. Moreover, in the first half-year Audi benefited from positive valuation effects in securing raw materials. The operating return on sales, at 10.7 percent, therefore lies within the strategic target range of 9 to 11 percent. Net cash flow amounting to €5.5 billion reflects the financial strength of the Audi Group.

    Audi TechTalk Green Technology

    Innovative technologies are the key to a sustainable future. When conducting its development activities, Audi not only relies on its own expertise, but also on strategic collaborations. Our goal is to advance smart green solutions together with our development partners, suppliers, and employees. That is why Audi is a founding partner of the Greentech Festival, an event that offers thought leaders in the fields of climate change mitigation and sustainability a platform to present and discuss their ideas in depth. And that is why we are also committed to greentech at many other levels: from expanding the use of renewable energy for carbon-neutral mobility to processing and recycling mixed automotive plastic waste to monitoring sustainability standards in the supply chain using artificial intelligence. Projects carried out by the Audi Environmental Foundation focus on filters to protect bodies of water from microplastics caused by tire wear and on removing plastic waste from rivers. The Audi think tank came up with the idea of an app that allows users to calculate and reduce their own transport-related carbon footprint. The “Audi TechTalk: Green Technology” will provide a detailed look at individual Audi projects focused on green technology. All the relevant information and press materials can be found here.
