Driving innovations together

Investing in promising companies is part of the transformation at Audi. A4nXT GmbH does not limit its selection of start-ups to firmly defined fields of development. Instead, all companies that have proven themselves as innovation drivers and can contribute to implementing the corporate strategy "Vorsprung 2030" can be considered. The goals and fields of action anchored there are, for example, about stronger differentiation from the competition in electromobility, but also about the effective use of resources and an optimized customer experience.


The results of A4nXT GmbH and its holdings can already be seen and experienced in Audi's products. For example, virtual reality technologies from holoride will soon be integrated into various Audi vehicle models with the latest upgrade of the modular infotainment system (MIB 3).The XL2 joint venture with Capgemini

and the Audi spin-off Aerofoils are also part of the A4nXT product portfolio.
