The Audi e-tron GT enters production at the Audi Böllinger Höfe site in Germany

The Audi e-tron GT enters production at the Audi Böllinger Höfe site in GermanyThe Audi e-tron GT enters production at the Audi Böllinger Höfe at the Neckarsulm site and the first units will roll off the production line at the end of this year. Production of the e-tron GT was designed without physical prototypes - a first at Audi.

Large areas of the body of the all-electric Gran Turismo are constructed from ultra-high-strength steel and aluminum. To produce this material mix in the planned quantities, a body shop was established with an innovative body assembly line along which each body passes twice. It is constructed around what is called the two-way framer, in which ten robots are used to attach the inner and outer side panels. It combines all manufacturing steps involved in joining the sides in a single system.

The inline measuring procedure for the bodies is also new. It guarantees even greater accuracy and can respond very quickly to minute deviations. The expanded assembly line includes 36 instead of the previous 16 cycles. At the end of the body assembly line is where precise craftsmanship comes into play: experienced workers fit the add-on parts and check the finish of the completed body.
