2019 Audi e-tron GT concept

Audi is already gearing up a production plant for the gorgeous looking e-tron GT.

Audi revealed that the production version of the e-tron GT concept will be manufactured at the Böllinger Höfe plant in Germany, together with the Audi R8.

Start of production is planned for late 2020 as the company is currently upgrading the site and adding around 10,000 m² of additional space to handle the all-electric model.

While the R8 is heavily hand-made, the e-tron GT concept will be produced mostly separately using a highly automated production line, which also proves the intention for much higher volume.

E-Tron GT experience:

Since the Audi e-tron GT shares a lot with the Porsche Taycan, it could be a much better value proposition for a similar level of performance.
