Audi 0-60 Times
Audi is a German luxury car manufacturer that is renowned for its high-quality and high-performance vehicles. The company was founded in 1909 in Zwickau, Germany, by August Horch, a former engineer at Karl Benz’s automotive company. The name “Audi” is derived from the Latin translation of Horch’s surname, which means “hear” in English.
In 1932, Audi merged with three other German automakers (DKW, Horch, and Wanderer) to form Auto Union, which became the second-largest motor vehicle manufacturer in Germany after Mercedes-Benz. The company’s iconic four-ring logo, which represents the four automakers that merged to form Auto Union, was introduced in 1932.
Following World War II, the company was split into two separate entities: Auto Union AG and Audi NSU Auto Union AG. In 1985, Audi NSU Auto Union AG was renamed Audi AG and became a subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group.
Audi’s headquarters are located in Ingolstadt, Bavaria, Germany. The company has production facilities in Europe, Asia, and North America and employs more than 90,000 people worldwide.
Audi is known for its diverse lineup of luxury vehicles, including sedans, coupes, SUVs, and electric cars. Some of the company’s most popular models include the Audi A4, A6, Q5, Q7, and R8. The Audi A4 is a compact executive car that has been in production since 1994, while the Audi A6 is a mid-size executive car that has been in production since 1994. The Audi Q5 is a compact luxury SUV that has been in production since 2008, while the Audi Q7 is a mid-size luxury SUV that has been in production since 2005. The Audi R8 is a high-performance sports car that has been in production since 2006.
In recent years, Audi has shifted its focus towards electric cars and has developed a number of innovative electric vehicles, including the Audi e-tron SUV and the Audi e-tron GT. The company has also announced plans to introduce more than 20 electric and hybrid vehicles by 2026.
In the future, Audi aims to continue to lead the luxury car market with innovative and sustainable vehicles that deliver exceptional performance, comfort, and technology. The company is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. By investing in electric and hybrid technology, Audi hopes to make sustainable mobility accessible to more people around the world while continuing to provide the luxury and performance that its customers expect.
