Exclusive: Audi A3 sedan will be built at the Gyor plant in Hungary

Audi will manufacture the A3 sedan at the Gyor plant in Hungary, where expansion work is currently being done, a company communication executive told Inautonews.com.

Mr. Josef Schlossmacher, Audi’s Product and Technology communication manager, told us that the A3 sedan for Europe will be built in Hungary, at the Gyor plant located in the western part of the country. “While the Audi A3 3-door and Sportback are built in Ingolstadt, the Audi A3 sedan will be manufactured in Györ, Hungary,” the executive told Inautonews.com via e-mail. Up until now, Audi only said the Gyor plant will build an A3-derivative, without specifying the name of the model. He confirmed that Audi’s competitor for the Mercedes-Benz CLA will be launched “both in the U.S. as well as in China”.

The Audi official did not reveal however when the A3 sedan would be introduced on these markets. “We haven’t decided yet on exact time frames for the market introduction in those countries yet,” Mr. Schlossmacher added. Asked about the pricing of the A3 sedan in Europe, he replied: “A starting price for the sedan hasn’t been fixed yet.”

Schlossmacher confirmed that the A3 family will receive a fourth member starting from next year. “Of course there will be a fourth member of the family, coming into the market next year – the new Audi A3 cabriolet. For more versions there are no plans existing so far,” the official said.

Audi’s Gyor plant currently manufactures the TT Coupe, TT Roadster, A3 Cabriolet and Audi RS3 Sportback (the latter two based on the previous generation A3). Last year, Audi announced the A3 sedan will be built from 2013 in a new plant located in Foshan, China, for the domestic market and other Asian markets. As for the U.S.-spec Audi A3 sedan, it is likely that A3 sedans for North America will be shipped from the Gyor plant.
