Audi Starts Mild-Hybrid Car Production in Győr

December 5, 2019

Audi Hungaria has begun the serial production of the Q3 and Q3 Sportback models with Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicles (MHEV) powertrain in Győr, NW Hungary. Both models feature a 1.5-liter TFSI engine, also made in Győr, in collaboration with a 48-volt on-board system and a Riemen-Starter-Generator (RSG). The production line had been prepared for the production of the hybrid models and the e-competencies of the staff had also been built.

Chairman of the Board of Directors of Audi Hungaria Co. Ltd., Alfons Dintner is quoted in a press statement by the company as saying that “the electric era has arrived at Audi Hungaria in every area. After our engine production, we also electrified our vehicle production. We are proud that our Q3 and Q3 Sportback models with MHEV technology are writing history: they are the first electric powertrain in Hungary. We have built up the competencies in electromobility for their manufacturing, which has enabled our company to anticipate the challenges of the future.”

Q3 models are Audi Hungaria's first hybrid cars. In the body shop, a new floorboard is installed in the car, which secures the battery during assembly. In the assemly hall, three new workstations were integrated, where special e-components are built into the car: a 12- and 48-volt system, a 48-volt lithium-ion battery and a DC / DC converter.
