Audi Hungaria: the first equipment for the production of electric MEBeco drives have arrived

Győr, February 8, 2024 – Preparations for the production of the next generation of electric motors, the MEBeco (Modularer E-Antriebs-Baukasten, modular electric drive concept), have begun in Győr: the virtual design of the production lines is underway and the first production equipment for the future production of the transmission components have arrived to Audi Hungaria. The MEBeco project, which is also supported by the Hungarian state, will contribute to the preservation of 260 jobs and further strengthen the competitiveness of the Hungarian automotive industry in the transition to electromobility.

”Just a few months ago, we successfully launched the series production of our drives for the PPE (Premium Platform Electric) electric platform and have already started preparing for the production of the next generation of electric, i.e. MEBeco drives. This also shows the intensity of the transformation in our company. We are constantly preparing our employees for the production of the new engine range, which will also require new activities and competences,” said Robert Buttenhauser, Member of the Board of Management of Audi Hungaria responsible for Engine Production.


In the future, MEBeco drives will be built into the Volkswagen Group's small electric cars. A new production area is being set up at the company to manufacture them. The new electric motor family will be produced at Audi Hungaria with greater production depth, which will also require new competences: the plate pack for the MEBeco drive will be mass-produced for the first time at the company, and the rotor and power electronics for the electric drive will be produced in Győr.

As the world's largest powertrain plant, Audi Hungaria produced a total of 1,660,425 powertrains in 2023, including 114,058 electric drives.
