Audi Q4 e tron: lʼélectromobility in a compact SUV

Marketed since 2021, the Audi Q4 e tron is a compact 100% electric SUV that accompanies you on a daily basis, and on all roads. Its range and performance are promising. Discover the future of mobility today!

Fascinating and futuristic design

After the e-Tron SUV and the e-Tron GT sedan, the Audi q4 e-tron is the German carmaker’s third electric model.

In addition to the classic e-tron version, the new electric Audi Q4 is offered in a sportback version. An SUV with a coupe-like silhouette. The latter is characterized by a smaller height (2 cm less), as well as a rather receding roof. This version is based on the same base, and also uses the same engines. However, it is more expensive.

An emblematic exterior

The silhouette of the Audi Q4 e tron is distinguished by a specific rear end. This reinforces its sporty appearance and improves the drag coefficient. The front end is characterized by a full grille with a unique frame. The sides are stretched and muscular. They reinforce their curvature with rather toned features.

For the classic Audi q4 e tron, the LED lighting technology is innovative. At the front, you can choose your light signature from four different optional lights and enjoy energetic lighting when you unlock your vehicle. At the rear, the dynamic lighting sequence and the light strip are eye-catching.

To complete the package, optional 21-inch Audi Sport alloy wheels are available. These make a strong impression, with a 5-spoke design and a black color with a glossy touring finish. If needed, different choices of exclusive Audi wheels are available for your model.

An innovative interior

The new interior of the compact SUV is very innovative. Indeed, it is characterized by the latest technologies on board, sportiness and functionality.

Discover an unstructured dashboard. Behind the steering wheel is the 10.25-inch Virtual Cockpit instrument panel. To its right, slightly tilted towards the driver, is a touch screen ranging from 10.1 to 11.6 inches, depending on the trim level chosen.

The innovative navigation system with the augmented reality head-up display is pleasant. As an option, this system projects speed, key information and direction directly and clearly onto the windscreen.

There are touch-sensitive surfaces on the steering wheel spokes. Separated from each other, they are black and backlit, and are easy to use. It’s the same principle as a smartphone. Just press and scroll with a simple slide of your finger.

In terms of comfort on board this electric car, Audi has provided remarkable interior space. Whether in the front or in the back, the passengers benefit from a generous space, and room for the legs. The headroom will satisfy the tallest.

Dimensions

In terms of dimensions, the footprint is almost identical to that of the Skoda Enyaq. The Audi q4 e tron has a length of 4,588 mm, a width of 1,865 mm and a height of 1,632 mm.

To make your life easier, this versatile, family-friendly compact SUV comes with plenty of storage solutions. You enjoy 24.8 liters of usable volume, including the glove compartment.

Particularly spacious, the trunk can accommodate 520 liters (535 liters for the Audi q4 e tron Sportback) of luggage, and up to 1,490 liters, thanks to the folding rear seat back in two parts. An interior volume that adapts to all your life moments.

Our opinion

You can turn to models that use the same technologies. Vw ID.4, Skoda Enyaq or the Hyundai Ioniq 5. There is no shortage of choice. But the Q4 e-tron is definitely the most modern!
