New electric car guarantees employment at Brussels Audi plant

The Audi plant in Brussels is to assemble Q8 e-tron, the new electric model.  Audi CEO Düsmann made the announcement that will keep staff in employment for several more years during a visit to the German carmaker’s Belgian assembly plant.

Herr Düsmann’s visit coincided with the 8th millionth Audi car rolling off the production line in the borough of Vorst.

The Audi Q8 e-tron is an electric version of Audi’s largest 4-wheel-drive model.  Audi Brussels today assembles two other electric models, the Audi e-tron and the e-tron Sportback.  Production of these models is scheduled to end in 2026.

Audi employs 3,000 at its Brussels plant.
