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 2017 the Audi Group delivered 1,878,100 Audi brand cars to customers. The company currently employs 90,000 people worldwide, of which more than 60,000 are employed at the German sites in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm.
