Audi Hungaria has been producing engines for the Audi and Volkswagen Group since 1994. The company has since grown to be the world’s largest engine factory. To date, the employees in Győr have produced over 30 million engines.
Of the 1,926,638 engines produced in 2016, 1,461,618 were four-cylinder gasoline or diesel engines. 9,113 five-cylinder gasoline engines as well as 418,207 six- and 37,700 eight- and ten-cylinder engines were also produced. Audi Hungaria built six different gasoline and five different diesel engine variants in 2016, with power outputs ranging from 63 kW (86 hp) to 449 kW (610 hp). Roughly 6,000 employees built over 8,800 engines each day for the Volkswagen Group’s 32 production locations.
In 2016, the 2.5-liter TFSI engine produced by Audi Hungaria was voted International Engine of the Year in the 2- to 2.5-liter category. The five-cylinder engine has now won the award for the seventh consecutive time. The plant achieved a key milestone in engine production last year when it produced its 30-millionth engine. The landmark unit was a 2.5-liter TFSI engine. Audi Hungaria also produces CKD engines (Completely Knocked Down). Production of CKD engines is primarily intended for overseas customers.
Engine production in Győr will be expanded in 2018 to include the series production of electric motors. The Competence Center for the Production of Electric Engines has already been completed; preparations for the start of series production are in full swing.
