Audi increases flexibility at Ingolstadt plant
A3 now also to be assembled in Hungary
With the recently updated Audi A3 enjoying
considerable, sustained popularity and the launch of the new Audi A4,
Audi has reached its capacity limits at the Ingolstadt plant. The
company management has therefore decided that the Audi A3 is also to
be assembled at the Györ, Hungary, plant in future.
The Györ plant offers a sound basis and wide-ranging experience
for assembly of the Audi A3. The Hungarian subsidiary AUDI HUNGARIA
MOTOR Kft. has been handling assembly of the Audi TT since 1998. Over
115,000 of the TT have since been built there.
Audi is an international developer and manufacturer of
high-quality cars. The company maintains production sites in Germany,
Hungary, Brazil, China and South Africa. In 1999, Audi sold around
635,000 cars and produced more than 1.2 million engines, bringing in
sales revenues in excess of DM 29.6 billion. The Audi Group currently
has over 49,000 employees.
