Production – compact: overview of production (120 minutes)

Experience the entire production process that goes into making an Audi. Learn all the important things about Audi sites and the Ingolstadt factory. Watch the fascinating dance of the welding robots building the car bodies. You'll find out about joining techniques and witness a "wedding" when the engine platform and body are married (put together) in the final assembly. The tour route may vary due to production needs.

 

Focus tour: Final assembly of the Audi A3 and Audi Q2, from the “wedding” to the steering wheel (60 minutes)

Watch the Audi A3 and Audi Q2 on the home stretch. Before a painted body becomes a finished vehicle, a variety of handles with thousands of individual parts need to be added. Watch the "wedding" up close where the body and the engine get married and watch the car take its first breath as its engine starts for the first time. Only then is the car ready for its journey to the customer.

 

Journey to the future: The making of an Audi A3 and an Audi Q2 body (120 minutes)

Watch plates being cut from extremely heavy sheet metal in the press plant. The steel or aluminium plates are then shaped in giant presses. This is largely determined by the tools produced on-site. Then it's time for one of the most advanced body construction units. Experience how a body for the Audi A3 and Audi Q2 is made from individual sheet metal parts. This production area is a highly efficient and sustainable factory with innovative technology and advanced equipment.

 

Logistics at its best – High-performance logistics system at Audi (120 minutes)

The focus of this special tour is on the complex challenges of effective logistics and modern solutions in the Ingolstadt factory. Manufacturing and supplier-logistical relationships are considered in more detail with impressive examples of just-in-time linking of suppliers and production. You'll see how prefabricated vehicle components are controlled directly in the manufacturing process and learn about production optimising methods such as Kanban.
