Audi in China

As the world's largest automotive market, China is of particular strategic importance for Audi. The company therefore works with two local partners. Together with them, Audi not only produces vehicles in the country, but also develops market-specific technologies and manages sales in the market.

Headquarters Beijing

Audi China was founded in 2009 as a wholly owned subsidiary of AUDI AG in Beijing. The company has over 600 employees and coordinates business between AUDI AG, the FAW Group, the FAW-Volkswagen joint venture and the second partner SAIC. Audi China's business units include Audi R&D Beijing, Brand Management and Sales & Marketing, Digital Business, Corporate Strategy and Planning, Audi China Sourcing and Quality/Technical Services.
