Source: Audi AG

  • Capital investments of 11.6 billion euros between 2004 and 2009
  • Around 80 percent earmarked for new products
  • New model series and additional variants planned

Audi will continue to invest large sums in sporty products and new models over the next five years. Capital investments will thus be maintained at the high level of recent years, following the decision of the Supervisory Board at its meeting yesterday evening.

Capital investments totaling 11.6 billion euros are earmarked in the Audi Group's medium-term investment plans for the period 2004 to 2009. Around 80 percent of capital investments will be for new products. This high proportion already reflects the plans to broaden the Audi model range quite substantially. Over the next few years, the company will not only be launching new models, but also unveiling additional derivatives in existing model series.
