Hungary Audi plant to shut down from Monday

German carmaker Audi will shut down production at its base in Győr (about 123 km west of Budapest) from Monday due to the international situation related to the coronavirus outbreak and uncertainty over car parts supply, the company told state news wire MTI on Tuesday.

The statement said the Volkswagen concern is stopping production at most of its bases, which affects Audi AGʼs sites in Ingolstadt, Neckarsulm, Brussels, Mexico, and Győr.

Audi employed more than 12,800 people at its base in Győr at the end of last year. The local unit turned out almost 2 million engines and more than 160,000 vehicles in 2019.
