Power and range
The drive portfolio of the two compact electric models considers the requirements of both the urban commuter and the long-distance driver. It includes two battery variants.
The top-of-the-range Q4 50 e-tron quattro has two electric motors for the electric all-wheel drive, generating a maximum output of 220kW – allowing a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds. The Q4 40 e-tron each have an electric motor that drives the rear wheels, with an output of 150kW respectively. The figures for the large battery in the Q4 40 e-tron and Q4 50 e-tron quattro are 77kWh (82kWh gross).
Q4 40 e-tron can tow trailers with a weight of up to 1,000kg (braked, at 12%incline), with the quattro versions able to pull up to 1,200kg.
Audi’s two new electric SUVs can be charged with different outputs using alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) depending on the battery. The compact battery can get up to 7.2kW with AC charging and up to 100kW when using HPC charging (high-power charging) with direct current. As standard, the larger battery allows for up to 11kW with AC and up to 125kW with HPC.
Another strength for everyday use is the high range – the Q4 40 e-tron travels up to 542 kilometres* (WLTP) on a full battery charge, while the Q4 50 e-tron can achieve up to 522 kilometres* (WLTP) – both in Sportback guise.
