Production hub for the all-new Audi Q2 will be the carmaker’s Ingolstadt-based facility in Germany. Though, the company might manufacture it here similar to other Audi cars. Most of the components of the crossover will be sourced from China. This will help the carmaker price it quite aggressively. With a long wheelbase and attractive pricing, the Audi Q2 will surely appeal young Indian buyers. The new Audi mini SUV has been designed keeping in view tastes and preferences of urban drivers.
