A little Audi History

The origin of Audi can be traced back to November 14, 1899 when August Horch established the company A. Horch & Cie. and developed his first car, which was completed in early 1901.

In 1909 August Horch had a dispute with the board of A. Horch & Cie. and was forced out of the company he had begun. Shortly after he established a second company, Horch Automobil-Werke GmbH.

His former partners sued him for trademark infringement and a German court determined that the Horch name belonged to his former company which barred from using his own family name in his new car business.

"Horch!" in German means "Hark!" or "hear" and his solution was to use the Latin translation of his name which is "Audi". The new company name, Audiwerke GmbH, became effective on April 25, 1910.

In 1932, four major German car brands - Audi, DKW, Wanderer, and Horch (his original company) joined forces to create Auto Union AG. The new company group, based in Chemnitz, was able to serve all market segments, from light motorcycles to luxury cars.

The Audi emblem is four overlapping rings that represent the four brands of Auto Union. The first ring represents Audi, the second represents DKW, third is Horch, and the fourth and last ring Wanderer



The Audi company was destroyed and dismantled after World War II and restarted as the Auto Union in Bavaria with loans from the Bavarian state government and Marshall Plan aid in 1949.



Volkswagen acquired the majority of shares in Auto Union in December 1964 and the company became a fully owned VW subsidiary.

Audi was reborn in the summer of 1965 when the first car with the Audi name was released in 20 years.



Audi was first introduced into the United States in 1970 with the Audi 100.
