Audi Brussels has been producing the Audi Q8 e-tron and the Audi Q8 Sportback e-tron, the Audi Group's top electric SUV model, since December 2022. Today, the Brussels plant celebrates the production of 200,000 all-electric Audi models. The anniversary car is an Audi Q8 Sportback e-tron* in Soneira Red, which is almost ready for delivery to European customers.
Audi Brussels has produced the Audi Q8 e-tron and Audi Q8 Sportback e-tron - the brand with the four rings top electric SUV model - since December 2022. Audi's first fully electric model, the Audi e-tron, previously rolled off its production line. The Brussels plant is the world's first CO₂-neutral1 large-scale production facility in the premium segment to be certified by independent experts.
With the largest photovoltaic site in the Brussels region, covering 107,000 square meters, the Audi plant saves around 1,881 tons of CO₂. It produces around 9,000 megawatt hours of electricity from renewable energies annually – enough to charge 90,000 Audi Q8 e-trons.
In the second half of 2023, Audi Brussels will assemble the Audi Q4 e-tron in addition to production in Zwickau, Germany.
1 Audi wants to achieve carbon neutrality on the environmental balance sheet, which means a condition in which, after exhausting other possible reduction measures in relation to CO₂ emissions caused by Audi products or activities, existing and/or currently unavoidable CO₂ emissions as part of the supply chain, manufacturing or recycling of Audi vehicles are at least offset in quantity by voluntary and worldwide offsetting projects. During the usage phase of a vehicle, which means from the moment a vehicle is handed over to customers, CO₂ emissions are not taken into account.
