Audi confirms production of all-new Q1 SUV from 2016

The Board of Management and the Works Council of Audi AG have confirmed that a new SUV model called the Q1 will be produced at its plant in Ingolstadt, Germany from 2016.

"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," said Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of Audi AG.

As an attractive entry into the Q family, the new model will make a significant contribution to the company's ongoing growth and will strengthen its international competitiveness. The decision to produce the new model will help to secure utilisation of capacity at the main plant in Ingolstadt over the long-term.

"This is a clear commitment to Ingolstadt as a production site. We will continue to make every effort to develop the plant even further as the leading technological site of the Audi Group," said Peter Mosch, Chairman of the General Works Council.
