Audi AG CEO Rupert Stadler raised a few eyebrows at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January when he confirmed that Audi was still very much considering a North American production point. Just how this manifests itself remains to be seen, but Automobile's Georg Kacher thinks he may have an idea... at least in part.
According to Kacher, who's usually privy to board-level decisions being made, the Volkswagen Group is considering an expansion to its new facility in CHattanooga and one intended to build so-called "high roof" vehicles such as crossovers.
The primary product, according to Kacher is a mid-sized Volkswagen crossover that could be based on the group's transverse architecture (MQB), but also may go the way of Audi and Porsche SUVs with longitudinal engine placement.
