Where are Audi Cars Built?

July 17, 2014

During the first decade of the 21st century, Audi more than doubled the number of models available for sale in the United States. Whereas Audi once sold only three sedans in the U.S.--the A4, A6 and A8 models--it now offers a full range of sedans, coupes, SUVs and even a mid-engine sports car. This is a remarkable development, especially considering that Audi had been pondering a full retreat from the U.S. market back in the 1990s.

Audi: Based in Germany, but a Global Manufacturer

Audi, which was originally founded back in 1909, is headquartered in Ingolstadt, Germany, but it now builds its cars on four continents. Having been incorporated together back in the 1960s, the Volkswagen/Audi group now shares certain technologies and vehicle platforms, but their assembly factories are largely distinct. In fact, as opposed to Volkswagen, most of the vehicles that Audi sells in the U.S. are built in Europe.

Other Audi Build Sites Available

According to sales volume increases, the company has the ability to export its cars to the U.S. from additional Audi factories around the world. For example, the A3 model is also being built in Curitiba, Brazil, and there is another factory in Changchun, China that builds the Q5 SUV. As with other automobile manufacturers, Audi has truly become a global brand.
