The Volkswagen Passenger Cars, Audi, Škoda and SEAT brands outperformed the market as a whole. However, the growth of the individual brands and business fields was still hit hard by the global financial and economic crisis. The Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand recorded a lower operating profit of €216 million (€1,295 million) for the period January to June.
The Audi premium brand recorded a 13.6 percent decline in unit sales. However, with an operating profit of a substantial €823 million (€1,299 million), it impressively demonstrates that it has no difficulty competing in the current tough economic climate. The figures for the Lamborghini brand included in the key figures for Audi also declined year-on-year because of the weak market.

With 80 different training courses and 14 qualification tracks, Audi plans this year to develop its service employees into experts who can provide top service to customers around the world.
"Audi wants to be the world's leading brand in the area of customer satisfaction.
...
Audi now has six training sites distributed throughout Germany, making them easily accessible for the employees of all Audi Service Centers.
...
This training is supported through selective training courses developed by Audi, covering areas such as investigating noises. Here, Audi technicians learn to use dialog with customers to quickly locate any "crackling" or "knocking" noises the customer describes. Training in "Clever Repair," which replaces expensive replacement of a body part through more moderate dent removal - saving time and money - is also intended to immediately boost customer satisfaction. Audi is meanwhile consistently expanding technical training with a view to the brand's technologies of the future: electric and hybrid drive systems, and lightweight design.
...
Frankfurt - Audi presents the highlight of the IAA 2009: the e-tron, a high-performance sports car with a purely electric drive system.
...
Audi has taken a new and in some cases revolutionary approach to many of the technical modules.
...
Audi is taking a new approach to offset these disadvantages - a holistic approach with a specific vehicle package, a systematic lightweight construction concept and an optimal configuration of all components for the electric drive.
Audi e-tron - The Holistic Approach
The most important development related to batteries for electric drives are lithium-ion cells. Numerous experts throughout the world are working on their further development for use in cars, with the primary objectives being to reduce weight and increase capacity and performance. Audi has also opted for this technology, both for use in a hybrid production vehicle, such as the upcoming Q5 hybrid, and in the e-tron test platform.
...
• The e-tron concept car uses car-to-x communication technology developed by Audi to improve the efficiency of conventionally powered vehicles. For example, information about traffic light cycle times and the flow of traffic - provided by the infrastructure and other vehicles - is used to compute an optimal driving strategy. Audi has already modeled such a solution in Ingolstadt as part of its "travolution" project.
...
High-efficiency LED technology is used for all lighting units - a matter of honor for Audi as the worldwide pioneer in this field.
...
The body structure is based on Audi Space Frame (ASF) technology and was realized as a hybrid construction. All add-on parts - doors, covers, sidewalls and roof - are made of a fiber-reinforced plastic. 8192_f2.jpg
The combination of aluminum and carbon fiber-reinforced composite material guarantees supreme rigidity coupled with low weight. Audi will soon use this technology in a similar form for production vehicles.
...
Audi uses liquid cooling for the batteries.
...
The heat pump used by Audi - and commonly used in buildings - is a highly efficient machine that uses mechanical work to provide heat with a minimum input of energy.
...
The electric vehicle from Audi thus enjoys all of the advantages of quattro technology.
...
Audi is working hard on the future of mobility. The company has established a project house for the development of an integrated concept for electric drives in automobiles. As part of this effort, a support project entitled e-performance and funded in part by the German Ministry for Education and Research will be launched on October 1. Institutes and companies from industry and science will be participating in the project.
Audi invests roughly two billion euros in development projects each year. Although the primary focus is on the further advancement of the combustion engine and related technologies, a second priority is electromobility. The e-tron showcar is making a powerful statement in this field at the IAA, and Audi is also in the process of strategically bundling its electromobility activities. Audi has established a project house dedicated to electric driving; it will shortly begin work on a project sponsored by the German federal government.
...
Audi is striving to provide holistic answers to these questions, thus creating an architecture comprising all sub-areas of the vehicle. Only when new systems and components are made to work together perfectly can the full potential of electromobility be exploited.
Audi is certain that the vehicle concepts will include new, intelligent solutions.
...
In addition - and this is what distinguishes the integrated approach - Audi is also studying all other areas of the vehicle.
...
The young team keeps one important aspect in mind every step of the way: even an electric car has to be a true Audi with the strong character that all Audi models have in common.
...
Audi has also recruited renowned partners from the scientific community - the RWTH Aachen, the technical universities of Munich, Dresden and Ilmenau, Leibniz University of Hanover and the Fraunhofer Society.
...
"The sheer scale of this project is very emblematic of the increasing significance of Audi not only in the UK but globally."
The strategically located landmark building is operated by the Sytner Group, a Sunday Times Best Company to Work For, which has 140 prestige franchise outlets across the UK. It will be staffed by 100 personnel and approximately 30,000 customers are expected through its doors in the next 12 months.
Gerard Nieuwenhuys, the Group's UK Managing Director commented: "It is a great privilege to be chosen by Audi to operate this amazing flagship dealership.
...
The Audi quattro Rooms on levels four and five feature not only a heritage section, displaying many of the innovations from Audi's 100-year history, but also meeting rooms, exhibition space and a screening room with the very latest 103" Bang & Olufsen screens. Audi selected architect Miguel Beleza to design the two floors to create imposing architectural features that define the venue.
...
"Audi is an enormously successful company with many ambitious plans for its future.
...
Audi has used Le Mans since 1999 to test technical innovations under racing conditions and has, in the process, repeatedly set milestones thanks to its technology leadership.

Brunei-Carzine: The new 2011 Audi A8 officially unveiled
www.bruneicarzine.com, 1 Dec 2009 [cached]
The reason i love about Audi is that Audi Motor sport pretty muc...
...
Audi has officially unveiled their fourth generation A8 luxury flagship sedan in Miami.
...
Fascinating sportiness, innovative technology and superior comfort: Audi is bringing the next generation of the A8 to the starting line.
...
Its elegant and forceful body is an aluminum Audi Space Frame (ASF), weighing about 40 percent less than a comparable steel structure. The interior is captivating, with its new and spacious design and uncompromisingly high-quality workmanship full of attention to the smallest detail.
...
In the field of multimedia Audi also offers many attractive modules.
...
The new A8 underscores the leading position maintained by Audi in the field of automotive design.
...
The Audi A8 looks out on the world through newly designed headlights - with xenon plus units and the innovative full LED headlights, a technology Audi was the first to introduce worldwide in the R8 high-performance sports car. The adaptive light system augments the xenon plus units - it controls the swiveling modules so that they always provide the perfect lighting for intersections, the city, country roads and highways. The new all-weather light integrated into the headlights replaces the fog lights. Their traditional location in the air intakes is now occupied by the radar sensors of the optional adaptive cruise control with stop & go function.
A technological breakthrough from Audi is the networking of the headlight control unit with the optional MMI navigation plus.
...
The tail lights also produce an appearance both three-dimensional and striking - and typically Audi. They, too, use LED technology with 72 light-emitting diodes per unit. Chip-on-board LEDs, which can be packed tightly together with high precision, are used in many areas due to the limited amount of space available.
...
Audi, the lightweight design pioneer of the automotive industry, again demonstrates its leadership role.
Fifteen years ago the four rings brand introduced the technology of the Audi Space Frame (ASF) into production - with the first A8 generation. ASF has proven its merit outstandingly; and now Audi is again using it in a much more advanced form.
...
Audi has substantially increased the strength of the higher-strength body components in the new A8, thereby significantly reducing both material thickness and weight.
...
The A8 also sets the bar at a new height in the quality of workmanship, another big domain of Audi.
...
Brushed aluminum and fine woods are optionally available from Audi. All components feature uncompromisingly precise workmanship and minimal gaps.
Audi offers five basic colors for the interior, and three shades for the roof lining. The selection of coverings ranges to natural leather, which is especially soft and breathable. Passionate individualists can choose from two Audi design selections in special colors that integrate many luxurious equipment features. Audi also offers several leather packages, an Alcantara package and the extended aluminum look in the interior.
...
Audi also offers optional seats with a sporty look and top-stitched diamond patterns. Three-staged ventilation is offered in addition to the heating. Another luxury extra is the pneumatic massage, in which twin air chambers pulsate in the backrest - the driver and front passenger can regulate them in five programs, with the intensity graduated in three stages.
As a large, luxurious touring sedan the A8 also treats its rear passengers on a first-class level. On request, Audi even provides the rear bench with versatile electric adjustment of the outside seats; a memory feature is on board as is adjustability of the front passenger seat from the rear. Seat heating, electric blinds and the four-zone automatic air conditioning together with a separate rear control panel round off the package.
...
Like all gasoline engines from Audi, the V8 has FSI direct injection.
...
On request, Audi also installs the dynamic sport differential.
...
The dynamic shift program (DSP) that controls the transmission features the automatic operating modes D and S. A pioneering innovation from Audi is its networking with the detailed route data supplied by the optional MMI navigation plus system.
...
The installation position of the new tiptronic follows a special layout - as in many models from Audi: The differential lies in front of the torque converter.
...
The new A8 also demonstrates Audi's concentrated innovative power in its assistance systems, offering a wide, newly echeloned range of high-tech systems.
...
The so-called remote infrared technology used by Audi looks ahead by up to 300 meters (984 ft), depending on the driven speed.
...
Audi has also set the bar significantly higher with regard to multimedia technology with the new A8.
...
Audi has entered a revolutionary new path in the operation of MMI navigation plus: it uses a touchpad.
...
The wheels are up to 21 inches in size, with a sporty tuning of the adaptive air suspension available from Audi on request.
