250,000th Audi Leaves Audi Hungaria Production Line
AUDI HUNGARIA MOTOR Kft. in Gyõr (Hungary) built its 250,000th vehicle yesterday. This landmark Audi is a silver TT Roadster 1.8T with an output of 165 kW (225 bhp), built for the American market.
Assembly of the Audi TT in Györ started in the first half of 1998. Over 13,000 of the TT Coupé were built in the very first year of production, and over 142,000 of this model have left the production line to date. It was joined in autumn 1999 by the TT Roadster, of which more than 71,000 have since been built in Hungary. The vehicle product range was extended at the start of 2001. Up until early 2003, Audi Hungaria in addition assembled a total of 36,453 of the Audi A3 and S3 on behalf of AUDI AG.
The Audi TT is built jointly by AUDI AG and the Györ plant; it is assembled at Györ and exported to over 40 different countries. Over EUR 50 million have been invested in vehicle production operations at Györ.
AUDI HUNGARIA MOTOR Kft., a fully-owned subsidiary of AUDI AG, was established in 1993. AUDI HUNGARIA, based in Gyõr, is the principal engine manufacturer within the Audi Group; it is Hungary's largest investor and exporter, and one of the highest-revenue enterprises in the country.
