Audi to add third shift at Gyor, Hungary site for production of new TT Coupe

Article by Christian Andrei, on July 17, 2014

Audi is adding a third shift at its Gyor manufacturing site in Hungary in mid-August to prepare for the serial production of the new Audi TT Coupe, plant production chief Gerd Walker said in a statement.

The site currently produces the TT Coupe and Roadster, the A3 sedan and A3 convertible and could produce up to 160,000 vehicles annually. The Gyor site produced 42,851 cars and 1.93 million engines in 2013, most of which were exported.

Audi has invested more than EUR900 million ($1.23 billion) to expand site to cover all production processes in a project completed in 2013.

The European Commission recently announced that it had commenced an in-depth investigation into state aid that Hungary granted to Audi to determine whether it complied with EU rules. Audi was granted EUR133.3 million in state aid in relation to its investment project.
