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.
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.
