Audi A1: Definitely not coming to US, confirmed

Audi A1

Audi has confirmed again that the Audi A1 will not make it to the US.

In March, global sales chief Peter Schwarzenbauer said in an interview with Automotive News that the A1 wouldn’t be making to the U.S. because the brand wasn’t well established enough to be selling small cars in a market that greatly favors larger models.

The latest confirmation came with news from Audi that orders for the A1 may go beyond the planned production of 50,000 units for the first year. Plans are for Audi to build 80,000 units in 2011 and 100,000 per year after that.
