Audi has just opened a new factory in Brazil. It will produce the A3, and following that, the Q3.
Apparently 90% of vehicles come with ethanol compatibility, which is really cool. Turns out there are more choices than gas, diesel and electric.Many consider South America to be the last potential emerging market. Not surprisingly, Audi is building them where they sell them, and they even added a bit of a local flavor.
Yes, you guessed it, the engine fitted to the A3 can run on ethanol, which seems to be the only thing they want to use over there.
Looks like Audi still thinks it is going to be expanding in South America. Diesel crisis be damned.
