Audi showcases e-tron GT, sustainability efforts at GreenTech Festival 2022

MANILA: Audi at the GreenTech Festival 2022 — Europe’s biggest gathering for green innovation and ideas — presented the various ways it is integrating sustainability into every area of its operations by launching the Audi Sustainability Hub.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How is Audi integrating sustainability into every area of its operations?

    One way Audi is doing this is through its circular economy strategy in which it is establishing more closed material cycles. Raw materials are reintroduced into the production line, such as discarded auto glass, which Audi then re-processes as windows for the Audi Q4 e-tron.
  • How is Audi Philippines pushing electromobility in the country?

    As part of PGA Cars’ “FutureNow” sustainable fully electric mobility program, Audi Philippines provides the e-tron range with a complimentary home charging system, and supports the models with factory equipment, technical expertise, and dedicated electric vehicle facilities.
  • As a founding partner of the GreenTech Festival, Audi showcased the fully electric e-tron GT, its circular economy strategy, charging hub, and sustainable practices in production and supply chain at its exhibition space on the grounds of the Berlin Tegel Airport.

    At the venue, visitors learned about the technologies and concepts that Audi has developed and put into practice to improve sustainability in its value chain.

    The GreenTech Festival 2022 offered a platform for discussions on sustainable development, climate issues and environmental protection. More than 100 exhibitors joined Audi in the event as they held open forums, panel discussions, keynote speeches and boot camps.

    By 2025, Audi plans to have more than 20 fully electric and 10 partially electric models in its lineup. Starting in 2026, the brand will only launch new models that are fully electric. It will phase out production of its internal combustion engines by 2033, and from then, on all Audi models will be purely electric.

    Audi is also aiming to reduce vehicle-specific carbon emissions by 40% (compared to 2018 levels) by 2030. To reach this goal, the company is intervening in its upstream supply chain processes.

    One way Audi is doing this is through its circular economy strategy in which it is establishing more closed material cycles. Raw materials are reintroduced into the production line, such as discarded auto glass, which Audi then re-processes as windows for the Audi Q4 e-tron.

    Audi’s roadmap to sustainable production and logistics targets to have more carbon-neutral production sites by 2025. Audi Hungaria already achieved this in 2020, while Audi Brussels became the world’s first carbon-neutral production plant in the premium segment in 2018. At Audi’s Neckarsulm site, the Audi e-tron GT is being produced via net carbon-neutral methods.

    Audi provided the fully electric e-tron GT to GreenTech Festival visitors for sessions in the Audi driving experience. The e-tron GT's fully electric drive, dynamic handling, and long range, are brought by the car's aesthetics, such as the headlights, powerful quattro blisters, wheels, and to the large diffuser at the rear. To reduce weight, its outer skin is made from aluminum.

    Audi e-tron GT Interior

    Offered as an option for the Audi e-tron GT are leather-free packages. The model’s seats can be upholstered either with a combination of artificial leather and Kaskade, or with a mixture of artificial leather and Dinamica.

    Both Kaskade and Dinamica are made of polyester fibers sourced from plastic bottles, textiles, or residual fibers from selvages. Also available are carpets and mats made from Econyl, a nylon fiber weave derived from surplus fabrics and carpets, and even fishing nets.

    Powering the Audi e-tron GT are two electric motors which output 530hp and 630Nm, and are paired with the electric quattro all-wheel drive system. With a fully charged battery, the e-tron GT can attain as much 500 kilometers (according to the Worldwide Harmonised Test Procedure [WLTP> tests).

    The e-tron GT — along with the e-tron SUV, e-tron Sportback SUV and RS e-tron GT — is available at Audi Philippines. As part of PGA Cars’ “FutureNow” sustainable fully electric mobility program, Audi Philippines provides the e-tron range with a complimentary home charging system, and supports the models with factory equipment, technical expertise, and dedicated electric vehicle facilities.

    With the e-tron range, Audi Philippines is pushing the era of premium electromobility in the country.
