At the Hungarian plant in Győr, AUDI HUNGARIA MOTOR Kft. develops and manufactures engines for AUDI AG and other companies of the Volkswagen Group. In partnership with the Ingolstadt plant it also assembles the Audi TT Coupé, the Audi TT Roadster, the Audi A3 Cabriolet and the Audi RS 3.
The founding of Audi Hungaria Motor Kft. in 1993 marked the beginning of construction on one of the world’s most modern production facilities. In 2010 for instance, Audi Hungaria produced a total of 1,648,030 engines and 38,541 cars, placing the company among the country’s highest-revenue businesses and one of its major exporters.
At the heart of the 5,000 m2 Technical Centre is the state-of-the-art test rig building. A second construction phase in 2004 doubled both its testing capacity and the number of employees. The Engine Development Centre supports engine production and works for both the engine production area at Audi Hungaria and the engine development operations of AUDI AG.
Because of the way in which production and logistics operations are organized, the machined parts leave the line at the precise point at which they are required for engine assembly. In addition, material and engines are shipped between Győr and Ingolstadt primarily via train to ensure rapid transit times and environmentally friendly, low-cost transport.
Almost the entire Audi engine range is now built at Győr. Each year, over one million four-cylinder gas and diesel engines leave the Győr production lines, along with more than 350,000 engines with five, six, ten and twelve cylinders. The Engine Startup Centre in Győr has also been building experimental engines since March 2010.
The Győr plant has been building the various models of the Audi TT since 1998. The Audi TT is a genuine collaborative effort: the body shop and paint shop are located at the Audi Ingolstadt plant, and vehicle assembly takes place in a 35,000 m2 hall at the Győr plant. Between April 2001 and April 2003, 36,458 units of the Audi A3 and Audi S3 were also built at Győr. Assembly of the Audi A3 Cabriolet started there in November 2007 and by the end of 2010 a total of 513,836 cars had been produced on site.
In mid-2005 the Győr tool-making shop started pilot production of body components for the Audi RS 4, one year later for the Audi R8, from 2008 for the Audi RS 6 and then from 2010 on for the sixth Audi model – the stunning Audi RS 5.
The Audi Production System (APS) has likewise been used intensively in recent years at the Changchun production site to implement Audi’s environmental policy at all levels, from offices to the assembly line.
