heavy rains have been key players the last few days in some regions of Germany, causing major havoc, and flooding. Precisely Audi has been affected by the floods, forcing them to to stop the production of his factory, based in neckarsulm, to the north of Baden-Württemberg, which is one of the main centers of production of the brand at a global level. The consequences of the floods in the region of Baden-Württemberg have been very considerable, and must regret the four deceased persons.
, based in neckarsulm are manufactured the Audi A4, A5, A6, A7, and A8, together with their respective sport versions S and RS, in addition to the super sports car Audi R8. The heavy rains of Sunday night and this morning have flooded some areas of the factory, due to the overflow of the river Neckar, forcing it to stop production in the whole plant. It is expected that this same night the production can resume.
The exclusive Audi R8 is one of the affected models
it Is unknown how many units is the lack of production caused by the break, but Audi manufactures around 1,300 units a day, based in neckarsulm. Last year Audi produced 272.103 cars in these facilities in which they are employed 16,000 people. Mercedes has run something more than luck at its plant in Untertuerkheim, in the same region, and about 65 km away, where also there has been flooding. The mark of the star has not affected the pace of production in the factory in which they build engines, gearboxes and transmissions.
