Audi Q4 e-tron
The Audi Q4 e-tron, our medium-sized EV SUV. First presented as a concept vehicle at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, the new Audi Q4 e-tron is l0oking to be an exciting vehicle.
The Audi Q4 will be available in two main variants, the Q4 e-tron and Q4 Sportback e-tron, with three different drive variations, culminating in the sensational quattro model with a maximum output of 220kW.
Audi Q4 e-tron Models
The Audi Q4 e-tron and the Q4 Sportback e-tron are designed to be the consummate versatile all-rounders for everyday use, transferring the progressive design of the concept cars into a production car that can be driven in the real world without producing any carbon emissions.
At 4.59 metres in length, they offer a package that gives passengers interior space that goes beyond existing class boundaries, and which is comparable with the full-size SUV class. The positioning of the battery in the floor, and the lack of a centre tunnel through the interior ensured that the car’s designers could maximise the spacious and airy feel of the interior.
The range comprises three different drive versions, spearheaded by a quattro model with a maximum output of 220kW, and both Q4 e-tron models impress with spacious interior dimensions and pioneering solutions to operation, display, and assist systems.
Advanced Heads-up Display
The Audi Q4 e-tron and the Q4 Sportback e-tron can be equipped with an augmented reality head-up display as an option. It superimposes the information provided by some of the assist systems and the navigation symbols on the real-life external world conveniently for the driver to see.
This information is displayed dynamically in a large field of view, where it appears in a virtual, floating image at a distance of roughly ten metres or more from the driver – creating a fascinating effect.
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 and three drive 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 and Q4 35 e-tron each have an electric motor that drives the rear wheels, with an output of 150kW and 125kW respectively.
The compact battery for the Q4 35 e-tron has a net energy content of 52kWh (55kWh gross), while the figures for the large battery in the Q4 40 e-tron and Q4 50 e-tron quattro are 77kWh (82kWh gross).
Both models 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 520 kilometres* (WLTP) on a single battery charge, while the Q4 50 e-tron can achieve up to 497 kilometres* (WLTP) in range in Sportback guise. The city-focused Q4 35 e-tron, with its lower battery capacity, can travel up to 349 kilometres* (WLTP) before recharging.
Neutral Carbon Production
Audi produces the Q4 e-tron and the Q4 Sportback e-tron with a neutral carbon footprint. The plant in Zwickau, Germany uses eco-electricity, while battery cell suppliers are also required to use only green electricity in their production processes.
Emissions that cannot be avoided at the moment are offset by climate protection projects certified by the TÜV. They meet the strict requirements of the Gold Standard Foundation.

WLTP is the new official EU test used to calculate standardised fuel consumption and CO₂ figures for passenger cars. It measures fuel, energy consumption, range and emissions. This is designed to provide figures closer to real-world driving behaviour. It tests vehicles with optional equipment and with a more demanding test procedure and driving profile. Figures are shown as a range under WLTP testing measures. The most economical figures refer to the most efficient/lightest set of options. A vehicle’s actual fuel consumption may differ from that achieved in such tests and these figures are for comparative purposes only.
As per global WLTP standard. Acceleration, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions figures depend on the individual vehicle specifications.
