Update: LG Display sent us a message stating that this report is not correct, and the company does not supply the OLEDs to Audi...

In April 2016 Audi unveiled its 2016 TT RS coupe - with optional OLED taillights. This is the world's first serially-produced car to have OLED taillights - and indeed this is one of the highlights in Audi's new car.

Up until now we did not know who produced the OLEDs for Audi, but according to ETNews, LG Display is the supplier of these OLED lighting panels. LG is gearing up to supply OLEDs to other autotmobile makers, and has recently announced plans to invest in a Gen-5 (1000x1200 mm) OLED lighting fab that will be located in Gumi, South Korea.

The initial capacity will be 15,000 monthly substrates, and LG will increase capacity depending on market reception. Mass production in the new fab is expected by the first half of 2017.
