Powertrain manufacturing plants in Europe have increased, up from 86 last year where global automakers and suppliers produce the engines and transmissions that drive the auto industry in Europe, Russia, Turkey and beyond.

This year we see on the map (below) the move toward more electrified drivetrains is underway in Europe. Our powertrain map has been expanded to include items such as BMW’s electric motor production in Landshut and Dingolfing, Germany, and ZF’s addition in Brandenburg, Germany, of a flexible 8-speed dual-clutch transmission that fits Porsche’s plug-in hybrids.

Europe’s largest automaker, Volkswagen Group, continues to have the largest powertrain manufacturing footprint in the region, with 13 plants, of which 4 plants are in its home market.

Renault-Nissan along with Russia’s largest automaker, AvtoVAZ, is second in terms of powertrain plants in the region covered by the map. France, Spain, Portugal and Russia account for a combined 8 of Renault-Nissan-AvtoVAZ’s 11 plants.
