The A4, Audi world’s most popular model, celebrates its 25th birthday
Audi is celebrating a major production anniversary in the premium mid size segment: 25 years ago, the first Audi A4 drove off the assembly line in Ingolstadt.
Since then, the brand with the Four Rings has produced more than 7.5 million units of the model.
With 344,586 units sold in 2018, the A4 is the world’s most popular model of the Four Rings. Approximately every fifth Audi delivered worldwide today comes from this series.
The model became a bestseller in its first full year of production in 1995, when more than 272,052 units drove off the production line.
Demand for the Audi A4 is unabated. Customers from China, Germany and the United States, most frequently decide on an Audi of the A4 series.
The most popular Audi model in China is the long‐wheelbase A4, which is produced especially for the Chinese market.
With a total production to date of more than 7.5 million units the A4 is the most successful Audi model of all time. Since the launch of the fourth A4 generation in 2007, Audi’s two main plants in Germany – Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm – have shared production of the A4 via the so‐called production turntable system. Audi manufactures the model also in Asia for the local markets there: in Changchun, China, and in Aurangabad, India.
