Audi A3 Production on Track for Record
Production of the Audi A3 continues to gather pace, with a total of 61,897 A3 models built in the first three months of the year. This is equivalent to an increase of 19.7 percent compared with the first quarter of 2005.
The Audi A3 is providing the Audi plant in Ingolstadt with greater impetus. Thanks to further optimisation of processes and an annual increase in productivity of more than ten percent, it has been possible to boost the daily production volume for the A3 from around 740 vehicles to the current figure
Heizmann: Our goal is to ensure that our plants are fit for the future with the existing model range and the addition of further new models. The A3 and A3 Sportback are important cornerstones for achieving this goal. A total of 220,486 units of this model were built last year (up 26.2 percent). This represents more than a quarter of total production.
