Self Study Program 657 – Audi Q5 (type FY)

VAG SSP 657. This self study programme describes the design and function of the Audi Q5 (type FY).

Production at the San José Chiapa plant (Mexico)

The new Audi Q5 is manufactured at a newly constructed San José Chiapa plant in Mexico. The most up-to-date production plant in the Audi organisation has been built on the 460 hectare site. At an altitude of 2,400 meters, it is the highest site in the Audi production network. Located about 200 km to the east of Mexico City, the new Audi plant has an annual production capacity of 150,000 cars.

Smart logistics allowing flexible production and supply chains are integral to Audi Mexico. San José Chiapa is the first facility in the entire VW Group to implement such technology for the complete material and container flow process. The new plant has been constructed in line with Audi standards, including those for sustainability and environmental protection.
