History: Founded in 1909 in Ingolstadt, Bavaria, Audi is definitely one of the most important companies that designs, engineers, produces, markets and distributes vehicles. The company was named after its founder’s surname – August Horch – which in German means “listen”. Later on, in July 1909, Audi Automobilwerke was set up. Back in 1932, the company merged with Horch, DKW and Wanderer in order to form Auto Union UG. Now, this event explains the four interlinked rings of the Audi logo. Since 1966, the company has been part of Volkswagen Group.
