Sep 02, 2015 - 5:14 PM - by Audi Forum


The European Euro NCAP consortium has awarded the new Audi Q7 with the top grade of five stars for safety. The results for adult protection in frontal and side impact collisions, pedestrian protection and child safety put the current Audi Q7 among the safest cars in its category.

Aug 14, 2015 - 3:37 PM - by Audi Forum


AUDI AG has started the second half of the year with higher sales than in July 2014. Despite forthcoming model changeovers and ongoing difficult conditions in some key markets, the four rings achieved slight sales growth of 1.4 percent in July, taking the total to around 146,100 units. While the Americas (+19.6%) again gathered pace as growth driver for Audi and deliveries continued to increase substantially in Western Europe (+6.1%), sales in the Asia-Pacific region (-9.2%) and Eastern Europe (-3.2%) remained below the prior-year levels. Around 1,048,450 customers worldwide have chosen an Audi since January, 3.5 percent more than one year earlier.

The future of piloted driving: Audi at the Ko HAF research initiative
Aug 06, 2015 - 5:58 PM - by Audi Forum


At Audi, piloted driving means safe, comfortable driving in partnership. Because of this, the company has been actively involved in the Ko HAF research initiative, which develops standards and solutions for cooperative highly-automated driving. Audi will introduce piloted driving in the next generation of the Audi A8.

Audi is participating in the “Cooperative Highly-Automated Driving” initiative (Ko‑HAF). The aim of Ko‑HAF is to develop standards and technologies that enable cooperative driving between highly-automated vehicles in everyday road traffic – for example merging with traffic on highways. The project work covers various subject areas from computer simulations to test drives on closed sites and later on public roads. In addition to Audi, other German car manufacturers, suppliers and universities are involved in the project. The initiative is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy.
