With its investment planning for the next five years, AUDI AG is pushing ahead its transformation to a provider of networked and sustainable premium mobility: with a total amount of approximately € 35 billion, investments remain at a high level, especially for future vehicle projects, in spite of a difficult business environment. Some € 17 billion, amounting to half of the investment sum, is allocated to future technologies alone. Like the Volkswagen Group as a whole, Audi is reinforcing investments in electromobility. The premium manufacturer has earmarked approximately € 15 billion for this and the future topic of hybridization, thus underlining the key importance of its electro-roadmap. The necessary financial scope is created by synergies in the Volkswagen Group – in both the e-platform strategy and in software development. Improvements in fixed costs, a leaner product portfolio, and savings in non-vehicle investments further contribute to the financial solidity of the Audi brand.
