- Special shifts to cope with a special economic
situation: Audi continues to defy the market trend. While the
economic situation of the automotive industry is recessive in many
markets, Audi has been able to make further increases. Although, for
example, the overall passenger car market in Germany declined by more
than six percent in May, Audi was able to increase its market share
to 7.4 percent (6.8 percent). In order to make sure that new vehicles
are delivered on time, Audi has agreed a total of 30 additional
shifts for its both German plants until the middle of the year.
Further special shifts are planned.
Dr. Franz-Josef Paefgen, Chairman of the Board of Management of
AUDI AG will announce the interim figures for the first six months of
2001 at the 112th Annual General Meeting on 28 June in Ingolstadt.
Note to editorial staff: The speeches held at the Audi Annual
General Meeting will be broadcast on the Internet. A satellite
broadcast is planned for television corporations. The relevant
technical data will be published tomorrow.
