Hungary Today 2023.07.21.

On July 8, Audi Hungaria celebrated its 30th anniversary with an open day, where hundreds of employees of Audi Hungaria gave visitors a first-hand look at the company’s activities – reported Járműipar.hu.

During the Open Day, more than 50,000 enthusiastic visitors were able to experience the production processes at the world’s largest engine plant and one of the most modern car factories, and to take a look behind the scenes of special areas that few have ever been able to enter.

More than 200 different activities were on offer to show visitors Audi Hungaria’s future-proof projects, including

a tour of the engine plant to see how the legendary V6, V8, and V10 engines are built and how the fully automated delivery of components is carried out.

Visitors were also shown the entire vehicle production process, from the cutting of the first steel plate to the delivery of the finished car, as well as smart vehicle manufacturing solutions and innovative vehicle logistics tools.

At the vehicle development stand, visitors were able to test their skills in the laboratory, and were also treated to fascinating information at the powertrain development stand, where Audi’s latest electric powertrain, special powertrain suspension, RS ceramic braking system, and other home-grown components were on display.

In another building,

guests were able to see all the products that Audi Hungaria staff have developed and validated in Hungary for the company’s customers, as well as how powertrains and chassis systems are developed using various simulations, as well as physical and vehicle tests.

In this way, the public had the opportunity to learn about the processes and milestones of vehicle design and the secrets of resource management.

In the tooling factory, it was possible to see bodywork components that are made for exclusive production models, such as the up-and-over door of the Lamborghini Revuelto.

At the Logistics Experience Island, Audi Hungaria staff demonstrated the role of VR (virtual reality) in logistics and showed guests a range of digitalization and automation solutions.

Audi Hungaria also had the little ones in mind: in the wind tunnel developed for vehicle testing, a kite flying demonstration was on the agenda.

Audi is not only celebrating 30 years of presence in Hungary, but also the production of its two millionth automobile. The anniversary model is a Karat beige Audi RS Q3 Sportback, which will soon be on its way to its new owner in Germany, the company wrote on its Facebook page.

“The 400 hp car is Hungarian to the core, as its 2.5-litre TFSI engine was also built at Audi Hungaria, which has won the prestigious “International Engine of the Year” award nine times in a row. From Győr to the world.❤️

Ultimately, it seems that this German company is not showing any inclination to take Katarina Barley German MEP’s advice on pulling out of Hungary. In an interview in Münchner Merkur, the SPD politician said that she is trying to persuade German companies not to invest in Hungary, and concerning BMW’s new plant site being developed in Debrecen, she suggested BMW to build anywhere else, but Hungary, like “in Romania, for example…”.
