Yesterday an engine plant – today an e-pioneer

The Salzgitter plant is getting ready for electric drives. While one of the 86 production lines is still used for building heavy six-cylinder engines, among other things, the workers next door are making a fist-sized electric pump.

Yesterday combustion engine producer – today e-pioneer
The latest generation of the socalled "EA211 TSI evo" is being built on this line for gasoline engines. Thanks to innovations like the new Miller combustion process, this 1.5-liter TSI is both fuel-efficient and powerful.
After the conversion of this diesel engine line, the 2.0 TDI will be produced on the line starting in 2019.
Getting started with e-mobility: in 2019 the series production of stators and rotors for the MEB platform will begin.
