Audi Brussels will start prolongation of a initial all-electric series-produced indication from a Four Rings before a finish of this year. It creates a matter with a operation suitable for bland use and with innovative, digital record on board. Audi pursues a holistic proceed with courtesy to tolerable reward mobility. For this reason, a association attaches good significance to a resource-conserving prolongation of a electric SUV. Right from a start of production, Audi Brussels will furnish a array chronicle of a Audi e-tron antecedent with a CO2-neutral impact on a environment. “At a same time, a initial electric automobile is also a initial automobile in a core foe that is totally climate-neutral in production. We equivocate any waste,” settled Peter Kössler, Member of a Board of Management for Production and Logistics during AUDI AG. “In addition, we are operative tough to make all a factories in a Group even some-more sustainable. We intend to gradually supply a plants with immature electricity. And final year, we were a initial association in Germany to make all domestic rail ride climate-neutral.”

The Belgian site has 3 categorical pillars. The initial post is changing over to immature electricity. This was already finished during a site in 2012. On a sum area of 37,000 block meters, a roofs of a plant buildings also have a largest photovoltaic complement in a region.
