The e-Tron GT will be Audi’s first German-built EV.
It will be assembled at Audi Böllinger Höfe at the Neckarsulm site.
The Audi R8 and e-Tron Gran Turismo will have very little in common with each other as far as powertrain and body parts are concerned. Even so, they will be assembled on the same line and as such, will both get the same level of attention and craftsmanship.
Audi’s Neckarsulm site is where Audi RS builds its high-performance, ultra-luxurious cars such as the RS 7 and others including the R8, which is where the upcoming Audi e-Tron GT will be assembled. The fit for this decision is obvious as the e-Tron Gran Turismo will essentially be an Audi RS car in all but name.
In order to accommodate the production of the e-Tron GT, Audi has expanded, upgraded, and converted the small series facility with digital processes and smart technologies. Importantly though, the same skilled craftsmanship from the previous facility has been retained and will work in unison with the automated production technologies.
“With the integration of the Audi R8 and Audi e-Tron GT, a unique combination of craftsmanship and smart factory technology is coming to life at Böllinger Höfe,” says Production Head Wolfgang Schanz in summary. “I am especially proud of the passion and spirit of our team.”
