5 Millionth Audi vehicle with quattro rolls out of the production line

Article by Christian A., on February 28, 2013

AUDI AG is celebrating its rolling out of the five millionth Audi built with a quattro drive system. This car, which was produced at the Neckarsulm plant, is a white Audi A6 allroad 3.0 TDI. Holding this record is proof of how big a role its pioneering all-wheel drive has.

There isn’t any other premium brand anywhere in the world that has reached very high sales figures for a four-wheel drive or has a similar lineup of models that boast of over 140 quattro variants. In 1980, the quattro technology debuted in the iconic, original quattro car. All of the available body types, engines and drive systems add up to a total of over 140 different models.

Audi is offering the largest lineup of cars with all-wheel drive. The Audi Q7, R8, A4 allroad, A6 allroad, along with the S and RS models, are exclusively equipped with quattro drives. It is available as an option in all the other model ranges. Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of AUDI AG, said that quattro is one of the brand’s “key pillars” and has been a crucial factor in its impressive history.

He added that with the quattro permanent all-wheel drive, drivers could directly experience its ‘Vorsprung durch Technik.’ He added that the company remains “committed” to its ground-breaking role and will continue to heighten this advantage by developing new technologies. He also said that quattro stands for “driving safety and sportiness, technical competence and a dynamic attitude.” Quattro models have been highly successful on the road as well as in motorsport, one example is the climb accomplished in 1986 by the Audi 100 CS quattro.
