Audi to manufacture luxury bullet-proof cars in Puebla

Audi Mexico disclosed that the plant in San Jose Chiapa, Puebla, will start producing bullet-proof compact model SUV Q5 vehicles, the first model this brand is going to manufacture outside of Europe. Walter Hanek, Director of Audi Mexico, says that due to the insecurity affecting the region, Latin America is a market with a large demand for bullet proof cars; however, the brand had a hiatus in their offer of OEM bullet-proof vehicles since 2008, after the production of the 2009 model A6 with this feature was suspended in Germany.
