A telltale sign of Audi’s ambitious North American expansion plans is the automaker’s sprawling assembly plant now in the early stages of construction here.

Set on 1,137 acres (460 ha) on the outskirts of San Jose Chiapa, some 1,200 trucks go in and out of the grounds daily as earth is moved, new foundations laid and steel planted for the German luxury-car maker’s first vehicle factory in the region.

Scheduled to launch series production in mid-2016, the new facility – with twice the physical footprint of parent Volkswagen’s 600,000-plus capacity plant in nearby Puebla – will build some 150,000 Q5 CUVs for sale in North America and export around the world.
