Audi Hungaria breaks ten-year output record

Audi Hungaria turned out 177,000 cars at its production base in Gyor, in north-western Hungary, breaking a ten-year output record last year, Peter Szijjarto, the foreign minister, said on Facebook on Thursday.

Szijjarto noted that Mercedes was continuously expanding its plant in Kecskemet, in central Hungary, and BMW was constructing a base in Debrecen, in the east of the country.

“As a result, Hungary has become part of an exclusive elite club with China and Germany, where all three of Germany’s premium car brands have an independent base,” Szijjarto said.

While “some Western European politicians are constantly spreading the ideology of splitting the Chinese and European economies, reality is thankfully completely different: after the big Chinese and Korean battery plants serving the German companies the world’s biggest Electric vehicle maker, China’s BYD is also bringing its first European plant to Hungary,” the minister said.
