Audi A4 celebrates 25 yearsby Justin King
More than 7.5 million units have been sold globally.
Audi is celebrating a milestone as the A4 has been on the market for 25 years.
Since the 'B5' generation first rolled off the assembly line in Ingolstadt, the company has produced more than 7.5 million units.
Now in its fifth generation, the latest A4 achieved sales of more than 344,500 units in 2018. Sales have been strong for years, with more than 272,000 units sold in the A4's first full year of production.
Despite the growing popularity of crossovers and SUVs that tend to dominate sales for other brands, the A4 remains Audi's most popular model.
"For a quarter of a century now, the Audi A4 has symbolized the Four Rings like no other model," says Ingolstadt plant director Albert Mayer. "It stands for cutting?edge technology in the premium mid?range, as well as for innovative production technologies at the highest level."
