Audi plant in Mexico closed over unpaid bills - local media

·1 min read

MEXICO CITY, Oct 9 (Reuters) - Mexican municipal officials on Friday evening closed German carmaker Audi's plant in the central state of Puebla due to a dispute over unpaid bills, local media reported.

A state official, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed the report on the assembly plant, which opened in 2016.

According to newspaper El Universal, officials from the municipality of San Jose Chiapa, where the Audi plant lies, shut the facility after several hours of failed talks.

The newspaper said municipal authorities are seeking some 90 million pesos ($4.26 million) from Audi for outstanding debts on items including local property tax and water bills.

Audi is the luxury car unit of Europe's biggest carmaker Volkswagen. Representatives of Volkswagen Mexico did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

The mayor's office of San Jose Chiapa could not immediately be reached for comment. ($1 = 21.1370 Mexican pesos) (Reporting by Dave Graham; editing by Richard Pullin)
