Audi boosting German production to keep up with U.S. demand

Audi will boost production at two German factories this quarter in order to keep up with booming demand in the United States.

Audi confirmed on Wednesday that it will increase production at its Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm production facilities in March in order to fill orders from the United States. Audi will add a total 12 special shifts at the plants, which produce the A6 sedan, A7 four-door coupe and Q5 SUV.

Audi spokesman Joachim Cordshagen told Automotive News that the German automaker might add more shifts during the second quarter, but declined to give any specifics.

Audi, Volkswagen's most profitable brand, has been running extra shifts in German since the start of the year.

The added shifts could pad Audi's U.S. supply by as much as 7,600 vehicles.
