This fall, 694 vocational trainees and 42 cooperative education students will take the first step toward launching their careers at Audi’s Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm sites. Thanks to customized training content, the digital transformation is starting right at the beginning of their professional activities – just like in 2020, for example, young people are once again entering training programs to become “IT specialists specializing in digital connectivity.” As such, AUDI AG is offering highly attractive prospects in technological fields of the future in the area of vocational training as well. In this context, the company is not only placing a strong focus on digitalization with respect to the subject matter, but also in the way it is being taught. Under the company’s new labor-management agreement on remote learning, for example, trainees can spend up to 20 percent of their training program learning remotely via mobile devices.

 

The 40 millionth engine has rolled off Audi Hungaria’s production lines: a 190 horsepower (140 kW) electric drive, which will be transported from the plant to Brussels on CO2-neutral, “green trains”, where it will be installed into a purely electric Audi e-tron model. Audi Hungaria started making engines in 1994, and has grown to become the largest engine manufacturer in the world. 2018 was the beginning of a new era, as Audi Hungaria began series production of electric motors, with over 200,000 units manufactured in Győr to date. In the spirit of electromobility, the company is already preparing to manufacture the next generation of electric motors.

 

The private jet for the road – At the IAA 2021, Audi is presenting the Audi grandsphere concept study. Like a first class flight, the 5.35 m (17.6 ft.) long grandsphere sedan combines the luxury of private travel in the greatest of comfort with a comprehensive onboard experience offering. Level 4 automated driving makes new dimensions of freedom possible: in this mode, the interior turns into a spacious sphere of experience without a steering wheel, pedals, or displays. And the front seats become a first class lounge with maximum space, freer views, and access to all the functions of a holistic digital ecosystem that the Audi grandsphere is integrated into.

 

A new pilot project being implemented at Audi’s Neckarsulm site, among other initiatives, highlights just how important the sustainable use of resources is to the company. At this location, Audi produces 3D-printed assembly aids for vehicle production – and as of recently, from waste that is generated right there on site. These assembly aids are not only made of recycled material, they also promote ergonomic and safe work processes and are tailored precisely to the requirements of the employees. As such, the project is helping the company achieve the objectives of its cross-site environmental program “Mission:Zero.”

Audi wants to be a sustainable, social, and technological leader by 2030. The premium brand wants to offer electric vehicle customers an unparalleled onboard system with its own ecosystem. “The corporate strategy ‘Vorsprung 2030’ will ensure that Audi remains viable long into the future,” says Audi CEO Markus Duesmann. The pace of change in our society is rapidly increasing. That’s why we're accelerating our own transformation.” A few weeks ago, Audi announced that starting in 2026, it would only launch new models on the global market that are equipped with electric drive systems. The company will gradually phase out production of its internal combustion engines between now and 2033. This clear decision was the result of an intensive strategy process with the ambition to continue to grow profitably.
