Audi stands for sporty vehicles, premium workmanship and progressive design – for “Vorsprung durch Technik”. Founded in 1899 by August Horch, the Audi Group – which also unites the Bentley, Ducati and Lamborghini brands under one roof – is currently one of the most successful manufacturers of automobiles and motorcycles in the premium segment.
In 2021, the Audi Group delivered around 1.681 million cars from the Audi brand, 8,405 sports cars from the Lamborghini brand and 59,447 motorcycles from the Ducati brand to customers. In the 2021 fiscal year, AUDI AG achieved total revenue of €53.1 billion and an operating profit before special items of €5.5 billion. More than 85,000 people all over the world work for the Audi Group, around 58,000 of them in Germany. With its attractive brands, new models, innovative mobility offerings and groundbreaking services, the premium brand group is systematically pursuing its path toward becoming a provider of sustainable, individual, premium mobility.
Innovations like quattro permanent all-wheel drive are a part of Audi’s DNA. With the decision only to launch fully electric models on the global market starting in 2026, Audi is once again taking the lead, pursuing a clear strategy for an electric, digital and fully connected future. By 2026, Audi plans to have more than 20 fully electric models on offer.
This clear commitment to electromobility is the cornerstone of Audi’s sustainability strategy. Based on this, Audi considers sustainability along the entire value chain, takes responsibility for the environment and society and makes sustainable corporate governance an inherent component of all its decisions and products.
