Pointing on Audi's success because of its young model range, which comprises of the new Q5 SUV and a large number of other niche versions, Stadler was proud of the company's assortment of vehicles that were proving to be well-liked among buyers even during a market slump.

In spite of Audi's present success; it is still dependent on a number of areas of manufacture on a single provider for important parts.
