Audi has just started production of the e-tron GT, its future all-electric four-door coupé, at the Böllinger Höfe plant in Germany. The presentation of the model is scheduled for the beginning of 2021.
Let’s go for the Audi e-tron GT! Expected in November 2020 at the Los Angeles Auto Show but still not presented, the future 100% electric sports car has just gone into production.
The model has taken its place alongside the R8 on the assembly lines at the Audi Sport plant in Böllinger Höfe, Neckarsulm, Germany. It is the first all-electric vehicle produced by Audi across the Rhine.
“No vehicle with the four rings has ever been prepared so quickly for series production,” says the manufacturer in a press release.
The icing on the cake, the production of the e-tron GT is entirely carbon neutral thanks in particular to eco-electricity and heat from regenerative sources. “The production process for the vehicles, which conserves resources, also avoids paper and packaging, uses aluminum and polymers in a closed loop,” the firm says.
The production site at Böllinger Höfe was expanded, modernized and retooled especially in 2019 to accommodate the Audi e-tron GT.
World premiere in early 2021
The world premiere of the 100% electric four-door coupé is scheduled for early 2021, with orders expected to open in the spring.
