Breaking news time again at The German Car Blog: we now have found the final confirmation that the US headquarters of Audi, VW and Bentley will leave Auburn Hills and move to the DC area. This will be announced on Thursday, so rather soon.
“There’s a whole laundry list” of reasons behind the move, said one senior insider, confirming that the company now plans to relocate to the Dulles corridor, a fast-growing strip of housing and corporate headquarters near the District’s largest airport, Dulles. A wide range of businesses have set up shop in that area in recent years, including numerous high-tech firms, such as AOL.
Specifics of the move are being guarded, though it appears that all of VW’s U.S. operations, which includes such brands as the flagship VW, high-line Audi and the ultra-luxurious Bentley, will all move from the Detroit suburb of Auburn Hills.
