The company attributed the decision to changes in its global production network, Hungarian news agency MTI reported, however, the timeframe for the launch of Audi Q3 production has not yet been revealed.

As the Audi plant in Brussels prepares for the launch of the first fully electric SUV in 2018, Audi A1 model production is being relocated from Brussels to Martorell, MTI said.

Audi Hungaria Motor managing director Peter Kössler said the decision was the latest confirmation of Audi Hungariaʼs competence and efficiency as well as Hungaryʼs competitiveness as a production base, MTI said.

The German manufacturer turns out TT Coupe models, TT Roadsters, Audi A3 Limousines and Audi A3 Cabriolets in Győr, the news agency noted.
