Audi to invest $30 bn in next five years

Dec 27 2013, 10:16am CST | by

Berlin, Dec 27 (IANS) German carmaker Audi announced Friday that it would invest an additional 22 billion euros (about $30 billion) in next five years for new models and technologies and increase employment worldwide.

Berlin, Dec 27 — German carmaker Audi announced Friday that it would invest an additional 22 billion euros (about $30 billion) in next five years for new models and technologies and increase employment worldwide.

The Ingolstadt-based manufacturer said in a statement that the new investment would be made between 2014 and 2018. About 70 percent of the money would be put into model range expansion and new technologies, Xinhua reported.

"With this investment programme we are launching our next stage of growth," said Axel Strotbek, member of the Board of Management of Audi AG for Finance and Organisation.

By 2020, Audi's auto range would include 60 different models, said the company. Currently, 49 models were produced worldwide.

"We are now decisively steering towards our next milestone of two million deliveries. This is why we are keeping our foot on the gas regarding investments and why we are hiring new employees in 2014," said Rupert Stadler, Audi's chairman of the Board of Management.

According to Audi, more than half of the investment would go to its production sites in German cities of Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm. However, several new factories would be set up in other countries.

In 2014, 700 young people would be trained in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm. More than 1,000 would be hired in Mexico, where Audi planned to build its first factory in North America and produce the Audi Q5 from 2016.

The four-ring brand also planned to add its production in Brazil, Hungarian, as well as in China's Foshan city.

Mercedes E350 wagon: A family hauler that really hauls (Video)

When it comes to luxury wagons, choices are slim, so it’s a good thing the choices are first-rate. There is little overlap in the field. The Audi Allroad, BMW 3Series and Volvo V60 wagons all are smaller than this week’s tester: the Mercedes E-Class, which also comes as a coupe, cabriolet and sedan. The Mercedes-Benz E350 wagon and the Lincoln MKT are the only ones offering three-row seating. The E wagon, however, is clas ...
