Győr is the leading plant for electric motor production in the Audi Group as well as one of the world's largest engine plants
The world’s largest engine plant – Audi Győr in Hungary – has produced its 250,000th electric motor since production of the electric drives began at the plant in 2018.
“Győr has become the leading plant for electric motor production in the Audi Group, and in the future we will further strengthen and expand the e-drive segment,” says Robert Buttenhauser, Member of the Board of Management for Drivetrain Production.
The 250,000th e-drive unit to be produced in Győr has a power of 140kW and will be delivered to Brussels on CO2-neutral trains and installed in Audi e-tron and Audi e-tron Sportback models at the production plant there.
In addition to the electric drives produced at Audi Győr, the plant continues to produce both TFSI and TDI powerplants for the brand and for the Volkswagen Group, as well as numerous Audi models including the Audi Q3 Sportback and the TT RS to name just two. In fact just last year, and in spite of the restrictions imposed by the pandemic, the Hungarian plant produced no less than 155,157 Audis in addition to its 1,661,599 powertrains – a mix of TFSI, TDI and electric.
Of course the electric drives represent the growth area of the market and since last year, up to 720 electric drives have been produced in Győr every day. These find their way into the Audi e-tron models, including the Audi e-tron S models which are set to be introduced in Australia next year. The S models of the Audi e-tron and Audi e-tron Sportback are equipped with three of the Győr electric motors, two of which on the rear axle, for a total of 370kW of boost output and 973Nm of torque.
Audi Hungaria is already preparing for the production of the new generation of e-motors, including those purely electric models of the Volkswagen Group that are based on the Premium Platform Electric (PPE, developed jointly by Audi and Porsche).
