History of Audi

Audi is one of the most prestigious car brands around the world. The company has headquarters in Ingolstadt, in the German State of Bavaria. However, their cars are also produced in Neckarsulm (Bavaria), Brussels (Belgium), Gy?r (Hungary), Bratislava (Slovakia), Changchun (China) and Aurangabad (India).

Although it is part of the VAG group, retains full autonomy in the design of their vehicles. The Audi motto: "at the forefront of the technique", and go to that it makes you honor, because it has always distinguished by the use of latest technologies in the production of its vehicles.

Its history, with more than one century old - is one of the most prolific of the automotive world. The emblem of the four rings identifies the brand, it is a symbol of the origin of the company: fusion in 1932 of four independent manufacturers. These were Audi, DKW, Horch and Wanderer, which together formed what today is AUDI AG.

It all began with August Horch (1868-1951) that the August Horch Automobilwerke GmbH company, founded in Cologne in 1899. After financial problems, he left this company and created in 1909 Audi Automobilwerke, based on the latin word Audi which means "listening".

In 1932, Saxon brands Audi, DKW, Horch and Wanderer; Auto Union AG, was formed to deal with the great depression of 1929. To avoid internal competition, was assigned to each mark a specific segment: luxury cars of the middle segment for Audi, motorcycles and small cars to DKW, Wanderer medium size vehicles and luxurious high-end for Horch cars.

In 1941, two years later of started World War II, Auto Union AG was only producing vehicles for military use, and its car development plans was threatened. In 1948 the company was low. Fortunately a year after the assistance of the Government of Bavaria made it to resurface under the name Union GmbH Audi.

In the 1950s they developed with rotary piston engine and body zinc coating to prevent corrosion. They were also pioneers in the test of security (impact test) and created the first body made entirely in aluminium, the A8 Audio. Audi also went down in history for three very important innovations in the automotive field: the steering wheel to the left, quattro traction and engine TDI (turbo direct injection).

At the end of 1964 Volkswagen bought most of their actions, and by the end of 1966 became the absolute owner. A new fusion took place in 1969, this time with the manufacturer of bicycles and cars NSU Motorenwerke AG.

Union GmbH Audi definitely changed its name to Audi AG in 1985.
