This is how the Audi Q5 is built in the new Mexican plant
Last week, production of the brand new Audi Q5 officially kicked off at the recently-constructed production facility in San Jose Chiapa, Puebla, Audi’s first in the Americas.
At full capacity, this plant will turn out 150,000 units a year and employ 4,200 local workers.
Now the company has issued a series of corporative videos that show how the Q5 comes to life.
Most of the 2017 Q5 is built by machines, particularly its platform which uses aluminum, composite materials and high-strength steel in its construction. The production line sees the Q5 shells pass through numerous stages, including welding, which is entirely automated, as is the paint shop.
As with lots of other vehicles, skilled workers play a pivotal role in the assembly of the new Q5, aiding in the marriage of the powertrain to the body. Workers also ensure that each and every Q5 to leave the plant has a perfect fit and finish.
