will spend €130 million to expand its Szentgotthárd, Hungary, factory to build its new generation of 1.6-liter, four-cylinder direct injection EcoTec turbo engines. Production of the engines has already begun at the factory, but the investment will allow more engines to be produced. The factory will also build the 1.6-liter turbocharged diesel version of the new engine when it goes into production later.

The investment will enlarge the factory by 1,600m² (17,222ft²), add 80 machines and increase production to 100,000 of the new engines a ear. The factory will be building 600,000 total engines a year when the upgrade is complete. 

“Opel continues to be a strategic player in the Hungarian economy. We were the first automotive company to invest in this country back in 1991 and our latest investments underline our partnership and commitments here," said Opel's head of government relations Joachim Koschnicke.
