- Györ, Hungary’s AUDI AG plant is a hub for the Premium Platform Electric (PPE), a key player in electric vehicles.
- The plant, with a 30-year history, has produced 400,000 electric drive systems since 2018.
- PPE, central to Audi, Porsche, and Bentley, introduces adaptive architecture for efficient and sustainable electric mobility, exemplified by the Audi Q6 E-Tron.
The Premium Platform Electric is ready to go in Audi’s Hungarian plant
In Györ, deep in the heart of Hungary, a silent revolution is underway at the AUDI AG plant. The Premium Platform Electric (PPE), a formidable force in the world of electric vehicles, is quietly making its mark as it ushers in a new era of automotive engineering.
Györ’s designation as the cradle of PPE is a strategic decision. With over three decades of history, the plant has transformed into a global powerhouse, producing 400,000 electric drive systems since 2018.
According to Audi CEO Gernot Döllner:
“Győr is predestined to produce extremely compact and efficient electric engines for the PPE.”
Beyond the tangible upgrades, Györ undergoes a systematic metamorphosis. A 15,000-square-meter production area overhaul, the incorporation of three production lines, and a workforce of 700 underscore Audi’s commitment to electrification. The objective? To spearhead a new age in emobility.
The spotlight focuses on the PPE platform—an engineering feat underpinning Audi, Porsche, and Bentley. The inaugural contender is the Audi Q6 E-Tron, which will debut in spring. PPE’s strength lies in its adaptive architecture. It can accommodate wheelbases, tracks, and clearances for both cars and SUVs.
Beneath the surface, the PPE platform conceals innovation. Modular e-motors promise performance beyond conventional MEB counterparts. As a dual-motor, all-wheel-drive system, PPE vehicles flaunt a front e-motor, smaller, lighter, and economically prudent—an embodiment of efficiency.
Yet, the narrative unfolds beneath the sleek exterior—an 800-volt electrical architecture and a 100 kWh modular prismatic battery. The PPE’s modular battery design isn’t just a feature; it’s a pledge.
PPE marks a narrative pivot. As the industry hurtles towards electrification, PPE heralds sustainable, efficient, adaptive electric mobility. In Györ, the plant stands not just as a spectator but as a craftsman shaping a future where e-mobility innovation takes centre stage with a measured tone.
