Volkswagen Group Rus produced the 700,000th engine at a plant in Kaluga


Kaluga Engine Plant Volkswagen Group Rus has produced the 700,000th 1.6 MPI EA211 series gasoline engine since its opening in September of 2015. The engines are assembled from localized components - the cylinder block, cylinder head and crankshaft are made in Russia, according to the press service of the automaker. Let us remind you that the enterprise with an area of 32 thousand square meters is located in the Grabtsevo industrial park in Kaluga, in the immediate vicinity of the Volkswagen automobile plant.

Volkswagen has invested about 250 million Euros in the construction of a plant with a production capacity of 150 thousand engines per a year. Engines produced in two modifications - 90 hp and 110 hp - are installed on the most popular models of Russian production: Volkswagen Polo, Skoda Rapid, Skoda Karoq, Skoda Octavia, as well as the new Volkswagen Taos crossover, which entered the assembly line in May 2021. In addition, Kaluga-made engines and their components are exported to production sites around the world, including Poland, Spain and Mexico.

The export of engine components has been established to the Czech Republic, to the Skoda plant in Mlada Boleslav. As AUTOSTAT previously reported, Volkswagen Group Rus signed a memorandum of intent with the government of the Kaluga region on the production of the 1.4 TSI engine at its plant in Kaluga from 2024. After the launch of the project, the maximum capacity of the enterprise will increase from the current 150 thousand engines to 240 thousand units per a year.

Investments in increasing and adapting the plant's production capacity for the production of a new engine will be 6 billion rubles. New 1.4 TSI engine with 150 hp will be produced at the company's plant together with the currently produced 1.6 MPI engine.
