Audi to Build 150,000 Q5s in Mexico as of 2016

Audi is very keen to break ground on the construction of a completely new ground-up plant, which is set to be built in San Jose Chiapa, Mexico. Pans are to commence construction in 2014, and once up and running, the plant will deliver 150,000 Q5 SUVs to the major nearby markets.

Production of the Q5 is set to commence in May of 2016, and it will grow within the first few years from under 100,000 units, to the 150,000 units they plan to produce. The employees which are set to work at the new plant will be trained in Germany, at Audi’s home plants in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm. This is scheduled to begin later this year, so by the time the plant is ready, the workers will be trained and ready.

However, despite doing all of their training in Germany, some actual German workers and supervisors will still be present, at least at first, in order to get things going smoothly. These employees will be required to stay in Mexico between four and fifteen months, and as much as five years.
