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

    Audi in November: Deliveries remain down on last year due to exceptional situation

    Global deliveries of the Four Rings in November fell by 16.7 percent year-on-year to around 132,650 automobiles. In Europe, extraordinary effects due to the switch to the WLTP test cycle along with the challenging phase-in and phase-out scenario as part of the Audi model initiative continue to affect sales. As a result, the company delivered 33.9 percent fewer units in Europe last month than in the same month in 2017. Deliveries from the Ingolstadt-based automaker also fell 9.1 percent in North America on account of imminent model changeovers. By contrast, China continued to grow (+2.7%). Cumulative global sales since January were down 2.4 percent on the corresponding period of 2017 at around 1,657,950 units.
