The 3 millionth Audi A3 Rolls off the Assembly Line

Audi has announced that the 3 millionth A3 rolled off the assembly line last week. Audi says that the A3 is available in 117 countries and the first A3 was built 17 years ago. The 3 millionth car was a white Audi A3 Sportback 2.0 TDI quattro.

“Three million automobiles in the compact class are quite a performance,” said Dr. Frank Dreves, Board of Management Member for Production at AUDI AG. “This success is backed by a strong team and an efficient production system. With the Audi A3, we have created a new brand segment – we have been setting standards in the compact class with innovative technology and first-class quality for 17 years now.”

“Since the middle of the nineties, the Audi A3 has become an important second pillar of our main plant in Ingolstadt, and thus makes a crucial contribution to the sustained protection of jobs at that site,” pointed out Peter Mosch, Chairman of the Group Works Council of AUDI AG. “Thanks in particular to the commitment and passion of our workforce, we have been able to write this success story.”
