For 2018 it is expected the second generation of the subcompact, which will move its production from Belgium to Spain. The confirmation comes from Matías Carnero, president of the committee of the company. The volume of production estimated is 170,000 units per year.
The new Audi A1 will be based on the MQB platform, which will also use the next SEAT Ibiza and Volkswagen Polo. Given the fact that the three models subcompact manufactured in our country at the same time. Traditionally, Spain has been a manufacturer cost-effective for small cars and the medium.
does that Mean the end of production of the Audi Q3 when it runs out its life cycle? It has not been confirmed or denied. The committee requests the VAG Group that you assign to another model if it is going to the Q3, since each of A1 leads to fewer hours of work each Q3, and there would be layoffs or ERE.
The Audi A1 has been a commercial success within the B-segment Premium, where it primarily competes against the MINI after their growth in size. The milestone of 500,000 units produced in the fall of 2014, it is possible to reach the million -or to get too close – with the current generation.
