At lngolstadt, the Audi Group built 583,942 (553,010) vehicles during the past year, an increase of 5.6 percent on the previous year’s level. The higher production volume can be explained in particular by high demand for the Audi Q5. 166,442 (105,341) parts sets were also made for CKD assembly in Changchun (China) and Aurangabad (India). The number of vehicles built at Neckarsulm climbed to 265,622 (216,322) cars in 2011, above all as a result of high demand for the A6 car line and for the A7 Sportback and A8 models. In addition, 117,337 (118,761) parts sets for CKD assembly in China and India were produced there.

Automotive production by AUDI HUNGARIA MOTOR Kft., Györ (Hungary), came to 39,518 (38,541) vehicles. It built 25,508 (26,217) models of the TT car line jointly with the Ingolstadt plant and 11,752 (12,309) of the Audi A3 Cabriolet on behalf of AUDI AG. The Hungarian company furthermore made 2,236 (15) of the RS3 Sportback.

AUDI BRUSSELS S.A./N.V., Brussels (Belgium), produced 117,566 (51,937) vehicles of the A1 car line in the period under review.

The Audi Group stepped up engine production to 1,884,157 (1,648,193) units in 2011. The 47.6 (44.7) percent share of diesel engines continues to underscore the Company’s extensive expertise in the domain of TDI technology.

The Hungarian subsidiary AUDl HUNGARIA MOTOR Kft., Gyõr, built a total of 1,883,757 (1,648,030) engines in the period under review, of which 920,773 (812,176) were supplied to Audi Group companies, 798,267 (682,856) to other Volkswagen Group companies and 118,919 (114,168) to third parties.

Furthermore, Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A., Sant’Agata Bolognese (Italy), built 400 (163) 12-cylinder engines.

Expansion of the Gyõr Location

The foundation stone of the plant expansion at the Hungarian location was officially laid last July. The Audi Group announced that, as well as a body shop, paint shop and assembly line, it is building a new press shop. From 2013, an additional A3 version will be built at Györ as well as the existing models. The plans envisage building 125,000 vehicles a year in Hungary in future.

The toolmaking operations have also been undergoing expansion since September 2011 and will eventually cover an area of 28,000 square meters. Around one-third of the surface area will be set aside for small production runs of body parts.

Extensions to the Engine Startup Center at AUDI HUNGARIA MOTOR Kft. also started in 2011.

Volume Production of the Audi Q3 In Martorell

Volume production of the Audi Q3 started at Martorell (Spain) in June 2011 — adding a further location from within the Volkswagen Group to the Audi Group’s production network. A new body shop occupying an area of 30,000 square meters was set up there specifically for the Q3. The Audi Group is planning to build around 100,000 of the Q3 annually.

New Plant in China

The Audi Group will increase its presence in China. In December 2011, the Company announced that the joint venture FAW-Volkswagen Automotive Company, Ltd., Changchun (China), which includes the partners AUDI AG, FAW Group Corporation, Changchun (China), and Volkswagen AG, Wolfsburg, is to construct a further car plant in the southern Chinese city of Foshan. This second Chinese location, which will cover all stages of the production process including press shop, body shop, paint shop and assembly line, is to build a new model from the A3 car line from 2013 on.

Production Milestones

In October 2011, the Company celebrated the production of the ten millionth midsize Audi vehicle. Four generations of the Audi 80 were built before this model was replaced with the Audi A4 in 1994. The A4 car line has now also reached its fourth generation.

The completion of its 20 millionth engine also signaled a major production landmark for AUDI HUNGARIA MOTOR Kft. The Hungarian company has already been building engines for 18 years, and these products are currently fitted in over 40 models throughout the VW Group.
