Audi wants to further improve its employees’ ergonomics in its production facilities. For this reason, the company is currently conducting a comparative study of two exoskeletons. These external support structures are designed to help employees when they are performing overhead tasks by protecting their joints and tiring their muscles less quickly. All in all, around 60 employees are currently using these tools over a period of several weeks at selected workstations in assembly, the paint shop and tool construction at the Ingolstadt site.

One year of the Audi CO2 program: reduction potential of 1.2 tons of CO2 per car identified One year of the Audi CO2 program: reduction potential of 1.2 tons of CO2 per car identified

The consistent electrification of the product range means that a large proportion of the CO2 emissions are no longer accounted for by cars’ exhaust systems, but by the supply chain and in upstream production processes. Together with its suppliers, therefore, Audi is developing measures to reduce CO2 emissions that take effect already in that phase. The focus of the CO2 program is on particularly energy-intensive materials used in production, such as aluminum, steel and battery components.

Audi concludes fundamental agreement with Works Council on economic and forward-looking realignment Audi concludes fundamental agreement with Works Council on economic and forward-looking realignment

A new era is dawning. Audi is taking sustained action for greater economy, flexibility and secure jobs. The Board of Management and employee representatives have reached a fundamental agreement within the framework of Audi.Zukunft. The decisions relate in particular to the optimization of production capacities at the two German plants and socially responsible workforce adjustments while extending job guarantee up to the end of 2029. The 6 billion euros thus generated will secure the strategic targeted return corridor of 9 to 11 percent and will flow into future projects such as electrification and digitalization. In this way, Audi.Zukunft will sustainably strengthen the competitiveness of the Four Rings and will make the company fit for the coming years. The agreement takes effect on November 29, 2019 and applies for the next ten years.

Audi’s sustainable commitment to the Werksviertel quarter in Munich Audi’s sustainable commitment to the Werksviertel quarter in Munich

Audi will be the mobility partner of the Werksviertel quarter in Munich and develop innovative concepts for the brand. On the site where the dumpling factories of the Pfanni brand once stood, a modern city quarter is arising. All of its “settlers” – as the residents and companies based there call themselves – share the wish for a sustainable lifestyle. Audi’s commitment is also made in this spirit: the “Audi on demand” mobility service is starting up with electrified models. And the pop-up store that opened yesterday at the heart of the Werksviertel will be a showcase for e-mobility in the company. On top of this, Audi experts for design, e-commerce and mobility services will move into the new building named WERK 12.

Audi designs first virtual concept car for Hollywood movie “Spies in Disguise” Audi designs first virtual concept car for Hollywood movie “Spies in Disguise”

The animated spy comedy adventure “Spies in Disguise” is hitting the big screen just in time for Christmas, and Audi is in on the act. The movie features another superstar alongside super spy Lance Sterling (voiced by Will Smith): the Audi RSQ e-tron, the first concept car from the Four Rings to be created exclusively for an animated film. The model was designed in close cooperation with Blue Sky Studios and boasts a holographic speedometer, an electric drive, a fully automated driving mode and visionary design language. The highlight of this unusual product placement: Contrary to tradition, Audi is not using the movie to advertise the launch of the model; instead, the sporty two-seater serves as a demonstration of how intelligent and sustainable premium mobility could look in the future.

Adjusted for the effects of deconsolidating the multi-brand importers, revenue was higher than in the prior-year period. Operating profit reflects the decrease in deliveries and ongoing high upfront expenditure for the future. Cash generation continues to be a strength of the Audi Group: A net cash flow of €3.3 billion confirms the company’s first-class solvency. With a view to the full year, the Audi Group now anticipates a slight increase in deliveries compared with 2018 and affirms its forecast for its key financial metrics.
