Following the production success of the Audi Q3, Audi allocated the new Audi A1 to Martorell, the headquarters site of the Volkswagen Group brand SEAT, where the sporty compact model is now being made exclusively and distributed to all the markets where it is sold. In these first months of production, the number of A1 made in Martorell rose to 16,526 units.
The new Audi A1 is being made under the highest quality standards using the Volkswagen Group’s MQB A0 platform. This model enhances synergies and efficiencies with the models that share its platform in Martorell, the SEAT Ibiza and SEAT Arona. The body shop has a floor space of close to 50,000 square meters and is one of the most advanced facilities of its kind. 474 robots of the latest generation are used in the body shop.
The allocation of the Audi A1 takes advantage of the know-how of the highly qualified employees that produced the Audi Q3 and the experience gained by the plant with the extremely quality-oriented Audi production system. Within the growth strategy of AUDI AG, production in Martorell is a key component of the overall production network.
