Audi Leaves Its Mark In The Global E-Mobility Race With Next-Gen E-Engines - VIDEO REPORT
2022. 06. 21.
Audi Hungaria announced the launch of yet another electric set of engines. The next-gen engines to be made on future production lines worth EUR 300 million will be built in economy cars of the group to meet heavy market demand. 500 employees will work due to the new production lines. The investment improves Hungary's position on the global automotive landscape to a large extent.
The anticipated so-called MEB ECO powertrains will be used in the economy e-cars of Volkswagen Group. Production is scheduled to start in 2025 in Győr for which purpose a production area of multiple production lines will be built.
said Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
Having a new product also entails new competences since by increasing manufacturing depth the plate package and the rotor, both needed for the electric powertrain, will also be made by staff in Győr; later on performance electronics will be manufactured there as well. All that will allow the company to expand know how.
Alfons Dintner, Chairman of the Board of Management of Audi Hungaria said.
Mr. Dintner added that Audi Hungaria shouldn't be conceived solely as a manufacturer but rather a service provider relying on the solid expertise of employees that provides high added value and actively shapes future mobility.
Robert Buttenhauser, Member of the Board of Management of Audi Hungaria for Powertrain Production concluded.
