World’s highest selling Audi model, the A4, is celebrating its 25th production anniversary this year. The Audi A4 went into production in 1994 as a successor to the Audi 80 series. The model emerged as a bestseller in its first year of production when over 2,72,052 units drove off the production line. And even today, the model continues to launch highlights in its class with numerous driver‑assistance systems. The company has produced over 7.5 million units till date and is currently in its fifth generation.
Speaking on the occasion, Albert Mayer, Plant Director at Audi’s site in Ingolstadt, said, “For a quarter of a century now, the Audi A4 has symbolized the Four Rings like no other model. It stands for cutting-edge technology in the premium mid-range, as well as for innovative production technologies at the highest level. The Audi A4 is a key pillar of the Ingolstadt plant in particular. Our employees’ tireless commitment and passion for our brand have been and continue to be the driving force behind the impressive success story of the A4.”
