Source: Compiled by the author from the annual statistical yearbooks of the above countries. 3). This strategy was followed in countries with no or a very limited history of indigenous car production prior to the state socialist period (Poland, Romania, Yugoslavia) to overcome the technological gap and to quickly launch production. The same strategy was also followed in the former Soviet Union to quickly elevate domestic passenger car production.

A subcontracted material handling and logistics firm unloads the train cars that bring in 90% of components from Germany and then moves the car bodies and other components to the plant. Also Audi personnel have nothing to do with moving anything around the plant as all this work is subcontracted. All the components are supplied to the assembly line in small stocks by the logistics company. Most of the TT cars assembly is done manually which allows the assembly of two versions of the car (the coupe and roadster) and their variations (front-wheel and four-wheel drive versions that have different rear suspensions) on the same assembly line as adapting to the differences between the two models is relatively easy compared to automated assembly lines.

The first group of Central European countries (Czechia, Slovenia and Poland joined by Hungary and Slovakia — two newcomers in the passenger car assembly) experienced the fast growth during the 1990s. The dramatic growth in output among these five Central European countries (by 890,000 units between 1990 and 2000 and over one million if production in the former GDR is included) resulted from FDI in the passenger car industry leading to its radical restructuring and integration into the European car production networks.
