Moreover, it sets a precedent for smart production, embracing digitalization, efficiency, and sustainability as its guiding principles. In addition to the new plant, Audi has a robust electrification strategy tailored specifically for China. The brand boasts a comprehensive and expanding lineup of battery-electric models within the country. Coupled with a selection of localized combustion-engine models, Audi is optimally positioned to meet the diverse needs of its broad customer base. Collaborating with two local partners enables Audi to capitalize on growth opportunities and expedite its electrification initiatives.

The local Audi portfolio is meticulously crafted to address the unique demands of the Chinese market. AUDI AG operates through its subsidiary Audi China in Beijing, the joint venture FAW-Volkswagen headquartered in Changchun, SAIC Volkswagen in Shanghai, and the newly established production facility in Changchun under the joint venture Audi FAW NEV Company Ltd. Through the two-partner strategy implemented in 2021, Audi now offers its most extensive model lineup in China to date.
