Audi is the second largest car manufacturer in Europe. Where are Audi cars made? Where do they assemble their products? Where are Audi parts manufactured? The answer might surprise you! In this blog post, we will explore the history of Audi and where they manufacture their vehicles now.
##Audi’ first cars were made in Ingolstadt, Germany. Over the years Audi has grown to be one of the largest car manufacturers on earth and have opened up many more assembly plants all around Europe. Today there is an Audi plant located in Neckarsulm, which is located close to the city of Stuttgart in Germany. Other Audi plants are located in Gyor, Hungary; Bratislava, Slovakia and recently opened one near Puebla, Mexico.
The name Audi is actually an acronym for “Automobilwerke Audiwerke AG”. Where the word ‘audiwerke’ comes from has been lost to history.
The most popular selling Audi in Europe is is the Avant.
The Audi Avants is a wagon-style vehicle that has been on the market since 1996, and its predecessors date back to 1968.
Audi has a strong racing heritage and started racing in the 1920s, Audi became successful in European Grand Prix motor racing with its supercharged straight-eight Type C and Type A racers.
Audi also had success at Le Mans 24 hours race since 2000 as well as other world championship races including Sebring 12 hours, Spa Francorchamps 2013 FTD.
It has long been rumoured that Audi will enter formula 1 racing but this is unlikely because of Audi’s strict policy of not producing any cars that do not conform to the European standard for carbon dioxide emissions.
The fastest Audi currently in production is the Audi RS, with a top speed of 313 km/h.
The Audi Avant concept car is an ultra-luxurious and spacious wagon that has been rumored to be in the works for production since 2012.
It was first unveiled at the 1995 Frankfurt Motor Show as a four-door fully functional prototype but there are still no plans for its production or release date as yet due to high costs associated with producing such an expensive car.
Audi now produces cars only in Europe; however they were once produced outside of this region, including Brazil from 1953 until 1972 when political upheaval halted their operations and South Africa where it had factories until 1980 following pressure by international anti-Apartheid campaigners who urged automakers not to support minority rule through investments.
The Frankfurt motor show is held annually in Germany’s largest city.
Europe-based car manufacturer Audi first unveiled their Avantissimo concept at the 1995 Frankfurt Motor Show and it is still not a production model, nor does there seem to be any plans for its release date in the near future as yet due to high costs associated with producing such an expensive vehicle.
The company has made several moves towards green technology recently, unveiling solar-powered hybrid electric vehicles that are aimed primarily at Chinese buyers. Chinese buyers now make up a significant percentage of the Audi market, with an estimated eight percent in 2009.
