Who makes Audi
Since 1966, Audi’s parent company is the Volkswagen Group, which also owns such popular car makes as Bentley, Bugatti, Porsche, SEAT, and Škoda. Originally Audi was an independent carmaker, but in 1958 a 87% share was acquired by Daimler-Benz. The share was increased to 100% a year later. One of Germany’s leading carmakers, Audi manufactures most of its vehicles within the country.
Where is Audi made
Like many other automakers, Audi’s parent company Volkswagen Group has manufacturing facilities in several countries. Most vehicles are created at Audi manufacturing plants in Germany (either in Ingolstadt or in Neckarsulm). In 2014, Audi controlled 11 assembly plants, from Russia to Europe (Spain, Belgium, Hungary, Slovakia), India, China, and Indonesia. The Audi Q7 is assembled mainly in Bratislava, Slovakia, while the Audi A3 is assembled in Győr, Hungary. Among the newest and largest VW plants is the one in Puebla, Mexico.
