Vw may build a North American factory for its premium Audi brand

Article by Christian Andrei, on April 15, 2012

On this Wednesday’s meeting of Volkswagen AG’s supervisory board, a decision will be made on where the North American factory for the Audi brand will be constructed, according to an insider. Audi officials have been saying that this summer is when the board will have to finalize its choice. There were reports earlier this month that VW has already decided to build a plant in Mexico but officials quickly denied it.

According to an Audi spokesman, the supervisory board will decide soon. A report from the German magazine Der Spiegel indicated that Audi had received the support of parent Volkswagen to construct the factory in Mexico for Q5 SUV production starting in 2015.

The magazine, which didn’t cite its sources, said that the supervisory board intends to have the plans ratified during the Wednesday meeting. VW officials have been in discussions on the factors that have to be considered in deciding the location (whether Mexico or the U.S.) Just last year, VW opened a plant in Chattanooga for the VW Passat production.
