Audi Q2 is the smallest SUV in the company line-up.

Following its world premiere at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in March, all-new Audi Q2 SUV has reached the Ingolstadt plant production line. The assembly line is equipped with an automatic module drivetrain section to facilitate increased production at around 450 units a day.

The largest production plant, and the second-largest European car plant, Ingolstadt facility assembles upward of 500,000 vehicles each year. That’s about two new Audi cars each minute.
