Belgium kicks off pre-ordering of Audi e-tron
In Belgium advance ordering of the new electric Audi e-tron SUV, built in Brussels, starts on Wednesday 10th of January. This was confirmed by Denis Gorteman, CEO of Belgian Audi importer D’Ieteren Auto. With an advance payment of 2.000 euro you can put yourself on the waiting list for the e-tron. The price will be between 85.000 and 90.000 euro.
The Audi e-tron is a prestige project. The first full electric model of the German premium car manufacturer has an autonomy of 500 km. The car will be built in the Belgian factory in Vorst (Brussels). Audi doesn’t want to confirm any information but according to the unions production will start in August 2018 and the target is to build 4.700 e-trons this year.
5% of the market
D’Ieteren Auto expects sales of electric cars to be booming the coming years. “By 2025 35 to 40% of our sales will be partial or full electric”, Gorteman says. A bold prediction, because last year 27.000 electric cars were sold, or less than 5% of the market.
