The new Audi RS 7 Sportback (combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 11.6 – 11.4 (20.3 – 20.6 US mpg); combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 265 – 261 (426.5 – 420.0 g/mi)) marks the model’s second generation and is more unique than ever before. At the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt, Audi Sport GmbH will be presenting the RS 7 Sportback as a wide-bodied five-seater for the first time, also showcasing the improved performance and efficiency delivered by a mild hybrid system. The RS 7 Sportback will be arriving at dealerships in Germany and other European countries in the end of 2019.


Audi is systematically pursuing its electrification strategy and is now offering its large four-door coupe as a powerful and efficient PHEV. Intelligent drive management with a predictive operating strategy enables high electric range, low fuel consumption and dynamic performance. The new Audi A7 aSportback 55 TFSI e quattro combines all of that with a system output of 270 kW (367 PS) (combined fuel consumption in l/100 km*: 2.1 – 1.9 (112.0 – 123.8 US mpg); combined electrical consumption in kWh/100 km*: 18.1 – 17.5; combined CO2 emissions in g/km*: 48 – 44 (77.2 – 70.8 g/mi)). A comprehensive list of standard equipment with S line exterior package and sport suspension round out the sporty look.


Ten European countries in 24 hours – the Audi e-tron (combined electrical consumption in kWh/100 km*: 26.4 - 22.9 (WLTP); 24.6 - 23.7 (NEDC), combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 0 (0 g/mi)) has impressively demonstrated its long-distance qualities. On August 20, nine journalists set out on the tour stretching over 1,600 km (994.2 mi) from Lake Bled in Slovenia to Amsterdam in the Netherlands. The electric SUV with its long range and short charging stops proved to be a compelling proposition. Combined with its powerful drive and comfortable interior, it turns electric touring into a premium experience.


Audi has been building cars at the Ingolstadt site for 70 years. The heart of the Group beats in this Bavarian city on the Danube: Ingolstadt is where AUDI AG has its headquarters and operates its largest production site worldwide.

Three special exhibitions entitled “Audi in Ingolstadt: Yesterday – Today – Tomorrow” were opened simultaneously today in the Audi Forum by Albert Mayer, plant manager at the Ingolstadt site, and Thomas Frank, Managing Director of Auto Union GmbH. The highlight is the extraordinary temporary exhibition “W49” in the Audi museum mobile, which lasts until the end of February 2020. Two additional exhibitions are open to Audi employees and all interested members of the public until September 21, 2019.

Auto Bild and Schwacke: Audi is Germany’s champ in holding value
Audi cars are tops at retaining their value on the German market, according to a study by the trade magazine Auto Bild for its 2019 “Wertmeister” (Value Champion) rankings. The brand with the four rings won four of the 13 vehicle classes in the rankings – more than any of its competitors. The e-tron 55 quattro** came out on top in the electric vehicle category with a residual value of 58.7 percent. The A1 40 TFSI Sportback** won the subcompact car category with 63.3 percent, while the Q2 40 TFSI quattro** won the compact SUV category with 59.6 percent. The A6 Avant 50 TDI quattro** topped the full-size class with a residual value of 49.8 percent.

The Auto Bild editorial team analyzed the German used car market together with the market observation company Schwacke for this year’s edition of the “Wertmeister” survey. Schwacke evaluates the prices of around 50,000 passenger car models and variants based on a full 1.7 million monthly market observations. The “Wertmeister” ranking shows the residual value of the individual models after a period of possession of four years, with various mileages assumed in the 13 vehicle classes. Referencing the new price – with defined optional equipment – results in a percentage value that determines the placement. For new models, a forecast is incorporated into the rating.

Entry into the top 100: Audi e-gas
Audi e-gas Betreibergesellschaft mbH from Ingolstadt has made the cut in the “TOP 100” innovation competition. This competition evaluates the innovation management of midsized companies on the basis of a scientific system.

It produces around 1,000 metric tons of e-gas and binds around 2,800 metric tons of carbon each year – as much as a forest with more than 220,000 beech trees absorbs each year.
