The full scale mass production of the Audi Q1 will start within two years. The Audi Q1 is a fundamental component in the wider scheme of Standard Utility Vehicles manufactured by the company. The Q Series of cars range over almost half a dozen models or so. The Q1 is the latest addition to this repertoire.
“The Audi Q1 is part of our broad-based SUV strategy. It is designed on the basis of the modular transverse engine concept and will round off our Q series at the bottom end,” stated Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of AUDI AG.
Besides the growth incentive, Audi Q1 will spur the competitive spirit. With this particular model, things are all set to change. The number of car types produced by Audi will expand from 49 to 60 by 2020. The day will come when Audi will be making more than two million automobiles on a yearly basis. But that goal is far off.
The assembly of the Audi Q1 will take place at the plant in Ingolstadt. The two versions that the car will come in are A and B. The trust and loyalty are there to see the brand through. The upkeep and evolution of the plant machinery will be seen to. Both an indigenous and international influence will be delicately maintained.
Peter Mosch, Chairman of the General Works Council, welcomes the decision: “This is a clear commitment to Ingolstadt as a production site. We will continue to make all efforts to develop the plant even further as the leading technological site of the Audi Group.”
The “Think Global and Act Local” slogan counts here like never before. As a market trendsetter, Audi has the chutzpah to endure the flack from rivals in the market. Cars and care go together at Audi where it appears that the best models come out time after time.
