It started with Horche & Cie
August Horch laid the foundation of an automobile company named Horch & Cie. in Cologne and made his first car. For some disparity, he left the business he initiated and established another company on July 16th, 1909 in Zwickau, Germany. Since his surname was already attached to another establishment, so a new name was required. Horch meant “listen” in German, which if translated into Latin becomes “Audi”. From there the company picked the name “Audi Automobilwerke GmbH” on April 25th in the year 1910.
In 1932, Audi merged with three other independently established automobile companies; Wanderer, Horch, and DKW and formed Auto Union AG. The four rings in the Audi emblem signify an amalgamation of those four manufacturers. After few years Auguest Horch withdrew himself and moved to Berlin and worked as an independent automobile expert. After World War II, the headquarter of Auto Union AG was shifted to Ingolstadt, Bavaria on September 3rd, 1949 and started trading as Auto Union GmbH. Dailmer-Benz AG obtained all the shares of Auto Union GmbH in April, 1958. From then until 1965, it existed as a subsidiary of Dailmer Group.
As Volkswagenwerk AG purchased the majority of the Auto Union shares, it became a subsidiary of the Volkswagerwerk by the end of 1966. In 1969, NSU Motorenwerke AG (another VW subsidiary) merged with Auto Union forming Audi NSU Auto Union AG. The headquarter was then moved to NSU plant in Neckarsulm. In 1970, Audi was introduced in the USA. After launching several cars like Audi 80, Audi 100 both the companies were dead in 1985. In January, the name was shortened to Audi AG and the headquartered back to Ingolsdt. Since then, Audi Ag has been manufacturing world-class luxury cars that has stunned everyone with beautiful designs, futuristic technology above all excellent performance.
The history of Audi AG is one of the most versatile story in the world of automobile. Despite so many changes in authority, economy, engineering, time; Audi has never compromised with the quality.
