Audi also makes the next generation of the Audi TT Coupe and TT Roadster at the Hungarian manufacturing facility. The company has so far invested a total of more than €900 million in buildings and equipment at the factory.
“Production of the new A3 Cabriolet is another step in expanding our production capacities in Gy?r to 125, 000 automobiles each year. For many years, our Hungarian plant has convinced our customers with automobiles in premium quality. This is made possible by a flexible team with great expertise,” stated Dr. Frank Dreves, Board of Management Member for Production of AUDI AG.
“With this model, Audi is creating a new highlight in the premium compact segment. Audi Hungaria stands for efficient working processes, an excellent infrastructure and highly qualified employees, who have already gained great experience with the assembly of the previous model,” said Gerd Walker, Director of Automobile Production at Audi Hungaria.
