Audi Decides to Build Its Plant in Mexico

Audi chooses Mexico over the USA as a place suitable for building its manufacturing plant, as we can learn from the German magazine, citing VW sources. According to Rupert Stadler, Audi CEO, whose comment was printed in Manager Magazin, the company wants a new factory in Mexico in order to produce the Q5 SUV.
Stadler’s comment doesn’t clarify, however, whether he is going to force his way over some of Volkswagen’s top managers’ position, as they would rather see Audi making use of the new VW plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
A spokesman for Audi has declined the comment on the report, yet he stated that a decision of car production in North America will be made before 2015. It’s worth mentioning that, unlike Mercedes-Benz and BMW, Audi does not have its own factory in the U.S. and the company has been long striving to have its own production facility there.
