    Audi has officially open the doors to its new production facility in San Josť Chiapa, Mexico. The plant is not only Audi's first in North America, but also the first from a premium automobile manufacturer in Mexico.

    Audi designed the entire plant virtually, allowing several different planners to work on the project at once. As a result, the 988 acre plant was able to be completed in just three-and-a-half years. In addition to an assembly line, the plant also features a press shop, body shop and paint shop.

    Audi will use the plant to build its new Q5 SUV for the global market. Audi says the facility will have the capacity to produce up to 150,000 Q5s annually. Roughly 70 percent of the Q5's components are sourced from the NAFTA region. So far about 100 companies have setup shop around the Mexican plant to supply parts for the Q5. The Audi plant itself employs 3,300 people.

    Mexican truth in Trade. When you have low wages, trade deals with virtually every country in the world, and you can rail your product to the Gulf or Pacific in a day (bypassing the Panama Canal), that's a "WIN".
