We know we are repeating ourselves, because we reported one month ago that the upcoming Audi Q3 will be built by Seat in Martorell factory and that the future SUV will be inspired by the Steppenwolf Concept shown by the German manufacturer back in 2000, at the Paris Motor Show.
We only post this news because the manufacturer revealed officially what we already knew! So expect the new baby-SUV in 2011!
"The Audi Q3 production is an example of how we are making use of synergies within the Group," stresses Frank Dreves, Board Member for Production at AUDI AG. "The Martorell factory is an extremely productive facility with a highly skilled workforce, and one that meets the exacting quality standards of our brand. The Q3 definitely gets the Audi seal of approval."
"A big thank you to all the employees who have been involved in the Q3 project over the past years," says SEAT Board Member for Production Wolfram Thomas. "The new model is another example of the trust that the Volkswagen Group and AUDI AG in particular have placed in SEAT. The Q3 represents the excellent preparation and premium-carmaking skills of SEAT employees," Thomas stresses.
