30-year-old Audi Hungaria has reached another significant milestone: today the two millionth car rolled off its production line. The jubilee car, a Karat beige Audi RS Q3 Sportback, will soon set out to its first owner in Germany. The 400 hp car’s 2.5-litre TFSI engine, which has won the prestigious “International Engine of the Year” award nine times in a row, was also built at Audi Hungaria.
Production at Audi Hungaria started in 1998 with the series production of the Audi TT Coupé models, followed a year later by the Audi TT Roadster. Initially, the lacquered bodywork arrived in Győr from Ingolstadt, and the finished cars were assembled by the Győr staff.
In 2013, a new era in vehicle manufacturing began with the opening of the new vehicle factory, as then Audi Hungaria turned into an all-round vehicle production plant – with a press shop, body shop, paint shop, assembly shop as well as associated quality assurance activities.
The Audi Q3 model series was extended in 2019 with the Audi Q3 Sportback, and later the Audi RS Q3 and Audi RS Q3 Sportback models. As an important milestone in e-transformation, the Q3 and Q3 Sportback with MHEV technology were the first electric drive train cars to be produced at Audi Hungaria in Hungary in 2019, followed by the series production of the plug-in hybrid drive train versions of the Q3 and Q3 Sportback in 2020.
Series production of the CUPRA Terramar will start in 2024, making Audi Hungaria the first production site of the Audi Group to produce models from other brands in addition to Audi.
