The local subsidiary of Audi AG just announced it has produced today its 25-millionth engine. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder-TFSI gasoline engine with 200 kW (272 hp) is installed in an Imola-yellow Audi TTS Coupe Competition.
Audi Hungaria has been producing engines for the Volkswagen and Audi Group for 20 years. At present, there are 235 engine versions in the product offering with four to twelve cylinders and power output from 63 kW/86 hp to 419 kW/570 hp. Approximately 5, 400 employees produce more than 8,100 engines every day.
“The 25-millionth engine underscores the longstanding success story of engine production at Audi Hungaria. Nearly all engines in Audi models come from Gy?r,” pointed out Dr. Frank Dreves, Board of Management Member for Production at AUDI AG. “Audi Hungaria therefore has a special strategic importance within the Audi Group. The company makes a major contribution to our growth strategy.”
“Our success is based on the high quality of our engines, our dedicated workforce and continuous technological progress,” stated Achim Heinfling, the head of engine production at Audi Hungaria. “Not only have we proven our worth in the Volkswagen and Audi Group in the past two decades, we are meanwhile the biggest engine producer in the world.”
Engine production in Gy?r started in 1993 with an advance series, and series production of the four-cylinder five-valve engine started in 1994. Since 1997, six- and eight-cylinder V-engines have been produced at Audi Hungaria; since 2000, four-cylinder inline diesel engines as well.
