Young engineering talent at Audi
Young, passionated, determined, this young Moroccan is part of the young talents at Audi Brussels. Her job: software engineer in automotive electronics.
Luc Ulenaers is way at the front of the line of those who ensure the smooth production of the Audi e-tron. He’s a training coordinator for basic skills training. For him, everything revolves around the distinctive features of the electric vehicle such as its wiring harnesses and plug connections. After all, anyone who handles more than 400 volts of electricity has to know what he’s doing. That’s why the senses are sharpened during basic skills training.
Would you like to work for a leading company in the global automotive industry, and help take on the ambitious technological challenges involved in building the eco-friendly, economical, high-performance car of the future?
Enthusiasm and interest are rewarded at Audi Brussels
As "Top Employer 2018", Audi Brussels offers numerous development opportunities for both young and experienced employees. Joeri Thienpont (28) is a prime example. His eagerness to learn, attitude towards his work and sense of initiative have enabled him to build an exciting career, taking him from production line operator to 3D measurement technician and now analyst.
A lot of currents flow in electric vehicles. Of course, conventional cars with combustion engines also have polished on-board electrical systems, but with electric cars, the voltage is many times higher. More than 400 volts are required for an electrical powertrain – and that’s by no means a safe amount of electricity. Those who work on batteries have to know exactly what they’re doing. Jonathan De Bondt knows how to handle electric cars, and he’s sharing that knowledge with the production team in Brussels. For six weeks at a time, he works as a trainer accompanying participants through a high-voltage education course.
Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions figures are obtained under standardised EU test conditions (or, in cases of vehicles with WLTP type approval, are the NEDC figures derived from WLTP testing). These figures facilitate comparison between different models from different manufacturers, but may not represent the actual fuel consumption achieved in ‘real world’ driving conditions. NEDC figures derived from WLTP testing may not be equivalent to figures from NEDC testing, so comparisons may be unreliable. More information is available at beta.audi.co.uk/wltp. Choice of wheels and other options may affect fuel consumption and emissions data.

*Recommended On-The-Road (OTR) retail prices include: delivery charge, half a tank of fuel, number plates, and first registration fee at £55.00 and Vehicle Excise Duty.
Recommended On-The-Road (OTR) retail prices shown are based on the 2018/19 VED rate.
As outlined in the Chancellor of the Exchequer’s 2015 budget, the way Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) is calculated will change from Saturday 1 April 2017 for the majority of vehicles. The first licence will continue to be calculated using the vehicle’s CO2 value, but subsequent licences will be based on a standard rate of £140. Vehicles with a list price exceeding £40,000 (including factory installed options, delivery charge, number plates and VAT) will pay an additional £310 plus the standard annual rate for a 5 year period. After the 5 year period only the standard rate will apply.
