The new Audi Q4 e-tron models are coming. The pioneering electric drive of e-tron, the unmistakable design aesthetic of Audi: both come together in Audi’s first compact, fully electric SUV’s. Available in two body styles, Q4 e-tron and Q4 Sportback e-tron, their road space requirements make them versatile and agile all-rounders, yet their interior space is far from compact - offering unrestricted space and comfort comparable to a full-size SUV.
Initially, Q4 e-tron comes with a choice of two batteries and two powertrain variants; the 35 e-tron, with a compact 52kWh1 battery producing 170PS and a range of up to 208 miles2 – or the 40 e-tron, with a large 77kWh1 battery delivering 204PS and a range of up to 316 miles2. Both are rear-wheel drive – while later this year the even more powerful Q4 e-tron quattro, featuring the renowned Audi all-wheel drive system, will also be available.
The Q4 e-tron makes a statement - its strong and precise lines give it an assured and sophisticated presence. A powerful body with a high front, wide stance and large wheels suggest the strength of an SUV. While the large, enclosed singleframe grille signifies it as an electric Audi. The Q4 Sportback e-tron model adds a dash of coupé to the SUV; its sloping roofline creates a silhouette that arcs rearwards.
When it’s time to recharge, the 35 e-tron has a 100kW DC charging capability and the 40 e-tron has 125kW. This enables both to recharge from 5 to 80% in 38 minutes3 when using a rapid charge public station - easily topping you up during a coffee break. Back home, a domestic charging wallbox with a capacity of 7kW AC, will comfortably allow you to replenish the battery overnight3.
The Audi Q4 e-tron models are packed with the latest Audi innovations: a first for Audi a new optional head-up display uses augmented reality to project driver information seemingly on to the road. Another first is the optional SONOS premium sound system, while standard equipment includes Audi Virtual cockpit; MMI Navigation plus with a 10.1” touch screen and a double-spoke design steering wheel with touch-sensitive operation.
Free from the conventions of combustion power, Audi designers have created a new kind of cabin for the Q4 e-tron models. The absence of a powertrain ‘tunnel’ along the middle yields considerably more knee and legroom. Even with its compact design, there’s up to 520 litres (Q4 e-tron) / 535 litres (Q4 Sportback e-tron) of luggage space, plus an array of clever stowage compartments that make it the ideal family all-rounder. And, with most controls contained within the touch screen and next-generation, multi-function steering wheel, the futuristic dash has a modern, clutter-free look.

2 Range dependent on trim and optional equipment
All vehicles are tested according to WLTP technical procedures. Figures shown are for comparability purposes; only compare fuel consumption, CO2 and equivalent electric range figures with other vehicles tested to the same technical procedures. These figures may not reflect real life driving results, which will depend upon a number of factors including the accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles, vehicle load (and, for battery electric vehicles, the starting charge of the battery).
Figures for plug-in hybrid vehicles were obtained using a combination of battery power and fuel. Plug-in hybrid vehicles require mains electricity for charging.
Figures for battery electric vehicles were obtained after the battery had been fully charged. Battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. Zero emissions while driving.
Figures quoted are subject to change due to ongoing approvals/changes and range figures may include options not available in the UK.
Please consult your local Audi Centre for further information.

* Charging times will depend on various factors, including temperature, state of the battery, state of and capabilities of the charging unit and power supply. Actual charging time will vary depending on the level of charge in the battery, as well as environmental conditions. Charging times will also be affected by the charging curve for example once charging passes 80%, charging will slow to protect the battery’s longevity.
