Győr

At the Hungarian plant in Győr, AUDI HUNGARIA MOTOR Kft. develops and manufactures engines for AUDI AG and other companies of the Volkswagen Group. In June 2013, the company also started series production of the Audi A3 Sedan, followed by the new A3 Cabriolet in October. These two Audi models were the first to be built in full at the site in Hungary. Since 2014, the Audi TT is also driving off the assembly lines there in the Coupé and Roadster versions.

The transport of components between Győr and Ingolstadt by rail is environmentally friendly.

Key figures

 

630 kilometres from Ingolstadt and midway between Vienna and Budapest lies Győr, on the banks of the Danube. With a population of 130,000 it is one of the biggest cities in Hungary and an important cultural centre.

After Budapest and Pest County, the Győr-Moson-Sopron region currently has the highest number of companies partly under foreign ownership. It enjoys a favourable geographical location, close to the point where Hungary, Slovakia and Austria all meet. Another big advantage is the presence of local industries such as mechanical engineering, plastics processing and construction.
