In their digital booklet entitled “Anniversary Dates 2019”, Audi Tradition provides information about the most important products, records and milestones in the history of Audi. This year, the company will be able to look forward to more than two-dozen anniversary dates.

It was 70 years ago that Audi history began in Ingolstadt. After the Second World War, the Auto Union AG plants in Saxony were seized under the orders of the Russian military administration and the company was removed from the companies register in Chemnitz in 1948. However, these orders did not apply in the western occupation zones and thus enabled Audi’s predecessor company, Auto Union GmbH, to be founded on September 3, 1949 in Ingolstadt. Just ten years later in 1959, the young company brought one of the most modern European vehicle manufacturing facilities of the time into operation. And in the same year, the first DKW Junior rolled off the production line.
