The first Audi A4 drove off the assembly line in Ingolstadt 25 years ago. It has since become Audi’s most popular model with more than 7.5 million being produced worldwide.
The Audi A4 set new standards when it went into production in 1994 as the successor to the Audi 80 series. With its elegance, sportiness and comfort, it quickly impressed customers all over the world.
The model became a bestseller in its first full year of production in 1995: more than 272,050 were produced. Today, the model’s popularity continues to grow with more than 344,500 units sold worldwide.
The Audi A4 is now (since 2015) in its fifth generation. Approximately one in five new Audi cars delivered worldwide are A4s.
“For a quarter of a century now, the Audi A4 has symbolized the Four Rings like no other model. It stands for cutting‑edge technology in the premium mid‑range, as well as for innovative production technologies at the highest level,” said Albert Mayer, Plant Director at Audi’s site in Ingolstadt.
