Audi HistoryBrand Family Tree

Audi is one of Germany’s oldest-established automobile manufacturers. Since 1932 the Audi emblem has been the ‘four rings’, which stand for its amalgamation with DKW, Horch and Wanderer to form Auto Union AG in Chemnitz, which then adopted this badge. It supplied the widest range of passenger vehicles that German industry could offer in the 1930s – from motorcycle to luxury saloon.
