Every day, the engine plant at Salzgitter produces some 7,000 gasoline and diesel engines of more than 200 types, ranging from 3-cylinder to 16-cylinder units. Some 1.54 million engines were manufactured in 2017. Since the plant was founded in 1970, more than 57 million engines have been produced in Salzgitter. These engines are used in many different Volkswagen Group models and brands. Engines from Salzgitter are fitted to the Volkswagen Golf, Tiguan and T6 as well as the ŠKODA Kodiaq and the Bugatti Chiron. Going forward, the plant will also produce key components for electric drives such as stators and rotors. In addition, Volkswagen is gradually building up competence in the development and production of battery cells and modules in the ‘Center of Excellence Battery’ at Salzgitter.
