Audi Hungaria Motor Kft / Production - Gyor Hungary
http://www.eurocarnews.com - Audi AG - Engine production in Győr already
began in late 1993 with pre-series production. The engine plant was
officially opened in October 1994. In opening this plant, Audi not only
safeguarded its international competitiveness, it also created a strategic
base in Hungary that increasingly gained in importance. Győr now produces
almost the entire range of Audi engines.
Engine production started with the four-cylinder five-valve engine with a
displacement of 1.8 liters, in both naturally aspirated and turbo versions. V6 engines with a displacement of
2.4, 2.7, 2.8, 3.0 and 3.2 liters have also been built at Győr since 1998.
The volume production of 4.2-liter eight-cylinder engines was started at
the end of 1997. By this time, diesel engines with pump-injector technology
were also produced at the Győr site.
The product range was expanded in 2002 with a new generation of engines
featuring FSI gasoline direct injection; the connecting rod production line
for four-cylinder diesel engines began operation two years later. In April
2006, Audi Hungaria brought a particularly powerful engine onto the market
-- the 5.2-liter ten-cylinder gasoline engine with FSI technology. Another
milestone followed that same year: The company presented the Audi Valvelift
System -- a future-oriented, highly efficient and at the same time
surprisingly simple valve-control technology.

In answer to the many who have commented "how many people have these robots
put out of work" the answer is 0. The factory was built in a town which had
high unemployment after the Soviets left, and the production line is a
small part of a plant which employs several thousand.

Audi TT Production
Györ, the Hungarian city on the Danube, is an ideal location for the
manufacturing of high-tech engines and cars. Its merits lie not merely in
the high availability of skilled workers and highly qualified university
AUDI HUNGARIA MOTOR Kft., a fully owned subsidiary of AUDI AG, builds over
1.9 million engines there each year, and assembles the Audi TT model range
and the A3 Cabriolet, among other vehicles, in tandem with the Ingolstadt
plant. Audi Hungaria is the principal engine supplier of the Audi and
Volkswagen Groups, one of Hungary's highest revenue enterprises and also
one of the country's biggest exporters.
ENGINE MANUFACTURING - Engine production (pre-series) started as long ago
as the end of 1993. The engine production plant in Györ, Hungary, was
inaugurated in October 1994. With this move, Audi not only safeguarded its
international competitiveness, it also created a strategic base in Hungary
that is gaining increasingly in importance. Györ now produces almost the
entire range of Audi engines. Some 400 different versions of basic engines
are built there: four, six, eight, ten and twelve-cylinder engines
featuring both TDITDISynonymous with muscular torque delivery and
outstanding efficiency: TDI. Today, TDI engines are sporty, smooth and

VEHICLE ASSEMBLY - Assembly of the Audi TT models at Györ commenced in
April 1998. The first second-generation Audi TT Coupé left the Audi
Hungaria production line in April 2006, and was followed by the first TT
Roadster of the same generation in that November. The bodyshells, which
have already been painted in Germany, are brought by train from Ingolstadt
to Györ, where they are delivered to the assembly hall. By the end of
2007, 382,445 Audi TT Coupé and TT Roadster cars as well as 216 of the new
Audi A3 Cabriolet had been assembled in partnership with the Ingolstadt
plant. Audi has systematically realised a new, process-oriented production
concept at the plant -- with short distances and fast, direct flows, from
the delivery of parts to the transportation of the assembled cars.
