AUDI AG is strengthening its successful growth path in the North American market with a new plant in San José Chiapa, Mexico. With today’s laying of the foundation stone in the federal state of Puebla, the official starting signal has been given for construction work on Audi’s first own car factory on the North American continent. Investment of more than € 900 million here in the next two years will result not only in a body shop, paint shop and assembly line, but also in a new press shop. Starting in mid-2016, the successor generation of the successful SUV model, Audi Q5, will drive off the assembly lines.
