Opel to augment engine manufacturing in Hungary
General Motors-owned carmaker Opel will add 17 new engine models to its product palette by 2018, most of which will be made at the Szentgotthard plant in western Hungary, vice president Péter Küspert said yesterday.
Küspert spoke at a celebration held on the occasion of the 8 millionth engine being manufactured at the plant.
Opel has invested €1.5 bln in Hungary to date and has manufactured 8 million engines and 6 million cylinder heads in Szentgotthard since 1992.
The company expects demand in small petrol engines to grow in the coming period, with this line to account for half of the Flex engine factoryʼs output in 2016.
