Audi electric cars to be built around the world
September 27, 2017  Auto Reuters

Audi will build electric vehicles at its plants across the world, including
sites in Mexico and Hungary, the premium carmaker said on Wednesday,
detailing its zero-emission plans.

The Volkswagen-owned business last year awarded production of its first
mass-produced electric sport-utility vehicle to a plant in Brussels, and has
since been pressured by labor unions to allocate electric car projects to

“In future, electric cars will roll off the line in all of our plants,”
chief executive Rupert Stadler told a gathering of 7,000 workers at Audi’s
base in Ingolstadt.

Besides Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm in Germany, which employ two thirds of
Audi’s 88,000 workers, the carmaker owns plants in Belgium, Mexico and
Hungary and uses a network of facilities run by Volkswagen (VW) and Skoda to
build vehicles overseas.

Audi plans to roll out more than 20 electrified vehicles before 2025, with
about a dozen designed to be battery-only, development chief Peter Mertens
said, mirroring the zero-emissions push by parent VW.

Separately, labor boss Peter Mosch on Wednesday called on top management to
speed up assigning production of electric cars to Germany, as staff in
Audi’s home market fear they could lose out in the race for zero emissions
orders and projects.

“The workforce here wants to see results no later than by the end of this
year,” Mosch told the Ingolstadt meeting.

Workers are also grappling with the fallout of the VW group’s diesel
emissions test cheating scandal, which involved some Audi models, and a
costly business transformation.

“We need clarity,” said Mosch, a member of both Audi’s and the VW group’s
supervisory boards.
