Of course, technical details remain secret, so we have to deal with the same rumors pointing to multiple engine configurations with power output to go in between 140 and 200 horsepower.
The Q3 will be manufactured in Europe at Audi's plant in Spain, so the Germans have already invested approximately 300 million Euros to prepare the production lines for the upcoming mini SUV.
"We are counting on this Spanish site’s efficiency, the excellent quality of the Production department, and its highly trained staff. We will use the Group’s synergies to sharpen our competitive edge and help protect around 1,200 jobs. The decision furthermore safeguards workplaces at other Audi locations," Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management at Audi AG, said in 2010 when the company made the decision to build the car in Spain.
The factory will have a production goal of 80,000 cars per year but, depending on the demand registered in the first months of availability, production could be increased to up to 100,000 cars per year.
