Audi may expand its plant in Hungary from 2018

Article by Christian A., on January 28, 2011

Audi AG said that it could expand its plant in Gyor, Hungary further after 2013 when its current expansion project is completed. Environmental licensing documentation, filed with the 2013 expansion plans of the carmaker's Gyor plant, showed the company planned a second investment phase in 2017-2018, which could raise output to up to 339,264 vehicles annually - or 1,000 per day.

When asked about such plans, Peter Lore, a spokesman for Audi in Hungary, said the currently planned 2013 expansion would raise capacity to 500 vehicles daily and it was possible that output could rise further in the years ahead.

Published on the website of the regional environment authority dated Nov. 26, 2010, the documentation said the project could create up to 15,000 jobs directly and through suppliers if all production capacities are utilized.

Audi decided in September 2010 to expand its plant in Gyor to raise output to 125,000 vehicles annually from 2013 - creating 1,800 new jobs and providing a boon to economic growth.

The Gyor facility, beginning in 2013, will fully produce models including the TT roadster, A3 Cabriolet and another A3 derivative. Lore did not comment on the 2017-2018 investment but said the licensing documentation filed with the Gyor plant expansion was based on "maximum technical production capacity." [via reuters]
