     Volkswagen’s brand new assembly plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee has just started manufacturing the all-new 2012 VW Passat for North America. Now VW believes a second plant will be needed in on this continent to assemble Audi models due to growing demand for the luxury brand.

The investment would be a huge economic boost and the Ontario government would like to see it happen in their province.

Audi Assembly


Audi sales have been increasing in North America year-over-year and could surpass 150,000 units by 2015. “It is totally clear that we need new production capacity in the U.S. The question only is when." Audi CEO Rupert Stadler stated.

In addition to the assembly plant, Automotive News is reporting that Audi will also be looking to build an engine plant and transmission plant to be shared with VW. This will help increase North American content and keep costs down at the new assembly plant.

Economic Development Minster Sandra Pupatello says that, “We’ll be in the game” but declined to comment on the process of obtaining the Audi plant in Ontario.

The province of Ontario is home to automotive assembly plants operated by Toyota, Honda, General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler.
The location, capacity and pending model for the new North American Audi plant will be made in three years time according to Rupert Stadler.
