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 1.845.550 new Audi brand cars to customers during 2019. The company currently employs 90,000 people worldwide, of which over 60,000 are employed at the German sites in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm.
