According to a report issued by Belgian newspaper De Morgen, Audi has decided to assemble the first ever Q6 at the factory in Brussels.

 

Audi provided a first glimpse of its all-electric Q6 last month at IAA in Frankfurt with the e-tron quattro concept which will receive a production version in 2018. Now, we managed to find out Audi's Tesla Model X rival will be manufactured at the factory in Brussels, Belgium where they currently put together the company's smallest model, the A1. There are around 2,500 employees working at this plant and last year they completed approximately 115,000 superminis.

 

We remind you the concept showed in Frankfurt had an electric range of more than 500 km (311 miles) and was powered by a trio of electric motors generating 503 PS (370 kW) and more than 800 Nm (with overboost). The electric power was enough for a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in 4.6 seconds and an electronically-governed 130 mph (210 km/h) top speed.

Taking into account it will go on sale at the beginning of 2018, expect to see the production-ready Audi Q6 before the end of 2017.
