AUDI AG, is a German business which produces vehicles under the Audi emblem. It is part of the Volkswagen Group. The title Audi is based on a Latin transformation of the last name of the founder August Horch, itself the German phrase for “listen!"

It has been a wholly-owned (99.55%) subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group (Volkswagen AG) since 1964. Volkswagen assembly relaunched the Audi emblem with the 1965 introduction of the Audi 60/72/75/80/Super 90 range (sold in certain export markets easily as the "Audi") soon after the title was acquired as part of Volkswagen's buy of the Auto Union assets from previous proprietor, Daimler-Benz.
