Audi makes twelve millionth engine in Győr
German carmaker Audi turned out the twelve millionth engine at its plant in Győr, northwest Hungary on Wednesday, Audi Hungaria Motor Kft announced.
The six-cylinder 3.2-liter fuel-stratified injection (FSI) engine will go into an Audi A6 built at the company's plant in Neckarsulmban in Germany. Audi started making the FSI engines at its plant in Hungary in 2004 and has since produced 160,000, turning out 350 a day.
Audi Hungaria plans to make 1.8 million engines in 2006, up from 1.7 million in 2005, managing director Thomas Faustmann said. Engines at the plant go into Volkswagen, Seat and Skoda brands, in addition to Audis. Audi Hungaria had revenue of €4.213 billion in 2005, 7.2% more than a year earlier and a new record for the unit. Audi has invested €2.8 billion at its unit in Hungary since setting it up in 1993.
