Audi will boost the production of engines at its Hungarian factory to 2.25 million units from 2020, Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto stated on Monday.

An Audi spokesperson at the premium automaker’s Ingolstadt headquarters in Germany refused to discuss internal planning.

“They plan to manufacture 2.25 million engines next year, and so far 2 million has been the annual record,” Szijjarto informed a news conference when asked about a report that Audi prepared to slash jobs at its Hungarian plant.

Audi’s Hungarian division stated in April that it prepared to increase the production of engines at its factory significantly in this year from the 1.95 million it made there last year, though it didn’t give a figure.

It also stated in July that it would broaden the manufacture of engines for electric cars at the factory, which is located in the western town of Gyor. It stated then that its e-transformation project would create 250 jobs.

The automaker, which is controlled by Volkswagen, has been making engines in Hungary since 1994. Out of the 1.95 engines produced in last year, 9,453 were electric axle drive units.
