Audi will boost German output to face the demand in the United States

Article by Christian A., on February 27, 2013

Due to the stable demand for luxury vehicles (particularly in the U.S.), Audi is planning to further increase its production this March at two of its plants in Germany. Spokesman Joachim Cordshagen said that this premium car division (which is owned by Volkswagen) will put up as many as 12 special production shifts at its primary factory in Ingolstadt and at a facility in Neckarsulm to process orders for models like the A6 sedan, A7 coupe and Q5 SUV.

Audi is talking about the chances of increasing the number of shifts at the two German plants in the second quarter. However, he didn’t provide more specific details.

Audi is the major contributor to VW’s group profit. Since the beginning of 2013, Audi has been operating additional shifts in Germany. Last Tuesday, Cordshagen said that with these measures, its output in the first quarter could increase by around 5,000 units in Ingolstadt. Meanwhile, Neckarsulm production could grow by about 2,600 units.
