With a meeting for Volkswagen’s supervisory board looming on Wednesday, a decision regarding Audi’s newest North American factory will likely be made. Two choices are available, but the key word seems to be North America.
As previously reported, Audi is looking to build a plant in Mexico. Reports say that Volkswagen’s Chattanooga factory was being touted by VW as an ideal solution. But resistance from within Audi led to the Mexico proposal, for a distinct factory that would start off with production of the Q5 in 2015.
No choice has been decided upon, but the scuttlebutt seems to be that Mexico will win out. Chattanooga’s factory is well regarding by VW’s top execs, but Audi likes to do things Audi’s way, and it looks like they’ll succeed yet again.
