Audi will open another plant in China in September to meet fast-growing demand for premium cars in there.

The $150-million plant in the north-eastern city of Changchun will double the brand's Chinese production capacity to 200 000 a year.

Audis are assembled in China through FAW-Volkswagen Automobile.

Zhang Xiaojun, deputy general manager of the Audi sales division at the joint venture, said: "The first two models to come out of the new plant will be the Audi A4L sedan and Q5 SUV.

"The factor will, in theory, will be able to produce all Audi's models." - AFP
