Audi has a clear vision for the future: to dramatically reduce CO₂ emissions over the next decade in route to achieving net CO₂ neutrality by 2050. To get there, we're reimagining the technology that powers our vehicles as well as how we build and deliver them. The Audi e-tron is produced in Brussels, Belgium. The Belgium plant has had carbon-neutral production since 2018 and is a pioneer for Audi’s strategic environmental program, Mission:Zero.  By 2025, production at all Audi locations is to become carbon-neutral. With the launch of the Audi e-tron, we are doing our part towards a more progressive, sustainable smart Bangladesh.  We are reducing our environmental footprint and moving towards clean Bangladesh for the future generations.
