Audi will launch a series production of electric motors at its plant in Hungary, Reuters reported.
There engines for the whole Audi’s e-tron line-up will be assembled. First, the 400 electric motors per day will be produced, then the output is planned to increase, the company informed. Last year Audi assembled nearly 2 million engines of various models at its Hungarian plant.
Audi Hungaria has been producing engines for Audi and Volkswagen Group since 1994. Today the company is one of the world’s largest engine factories. To date, the employees in Győr have produced more than 30 million units.
The engines made are 4-, 5-, 6, 8- and 10-cylinder ones, different petrol and 3 diesel variants, with power outputs from 86 to 639 hp. Nearly 6,000 workers build over 9,000 motors a day for the VW Group’s 32 production sites.
In 2017 a 2.5-liter TFSI engine produced by Audi in Győr got the International Engine of the Year reward. Audi Hungaria also manufactures completely knocked down (CKD) engines.
