Production

Production of the all-new Q3 compact SUV at the SEAT factory in Martorell, Spain, began in June 2011. The Q3 was the first Audi vehicle ever built at the facility with an annual production of around 100,000 units of the Q3 planned.

Production of the Q3 at the Martorell plant created 700 new jobs, and all staff involved in the process completed a 176 hour course to prepare for the challenge. The plant received a new body shop for the Q3’s production which features 450 robots designed especially for the Q3 on a 30,000 square metre site.
