Győr, 11 January 2019 – Audi Hungaria closed out 2018 with solid production figures. Last year, our company celebrated its 25-year anniversary and hit major milestones, marking a new era for Audi Hungaria with the launch of the series production of Audi Q3, the first SUV produced at Győr, and the production of electric motors revving up. At the end of last year, Audi Hungaria had a 13,084-strong workforce, the highest number of employees in the history of our company.
“We successfully managed to overcome the many challenges we faced throughout last year and lay the groundwork for a stable future. With the knowledge and experience we accumulated over the last 25 years and the performance of our team, we are looking forward to the next 25 years with optimism”, said Achim Heinfling, Chairman of the Board of AUDI HUNGARIA Zrt. “We are counting on the work of our employees to continue writing the success story of Audi Hungaria together.”
The Four-Ring company produced 1,954,301 engines last year, including 1,099,385 three- and four-cylinder petrol engines and 343,651 four-cylinder diesel engines.

Furthermore 15,977 eight- and ten-cylinder engines and 9,453 electric motors were also produced by Audi Hungaria in Győr.
In addition to electric drives, the company is consistently working on improving internal combustion engines.
