The popular Audi Q7

With a production total of 306 318 quattro vehicles in 2006, Audi is now officially the market leader for all-wheel drive vehicles in the premium segment.

During 2006, Audi recorded their all-time highest quattro installation rate of 33.1 percent, with one in three models being fitted with quattro all-wheel drive since last year.

The launch of the new Audi Q7 played a major role in the rise in the proportion of models by six percentage points compared to the previous year.

In total, 72 188 of the sports utility vehicles which are 100-percent all-wheel drive, were produced in 2006. Production of the RS 4 model family was also well up on the previous year at 7 639 units (2005: 569).

To date, Audi has built 2.3 million vehicles with quattro all-wheel drive.
