Production – expanding the manufacturing network
Martorell is the headquarters of the Volkswagen Group brand SEAT. Building the Audi Q3 in Martorell will add a further building block to AUDI AG’s production network and represents part of its growth strategy.

Audi and SEAT have invested some € 330 million in the facilities and infrastructure. With the brand new body shop and 30,000 square meter (322,917.31 sq ft) assembly hall, the Audi Q3 production facility in Martorell is among the most modern of its kind. The body shop features 450 of the latest-generation robots.
