The long-awaited Audi Q4 e-tron Concept was unveiled this morning at the Geneva Motor Show.
There were plenty of rumors about an upcoming smaller Audi Q4 e-tron concept slated to debut at the Geneva Motor Show. This morning, those rumors were confirmed.
Expected at the end of 2020 as the fifth electric vehicle from Audi and the second e-tron sport utility vehicle, the new Audi Q4 e-tron promises 450 kilometers of range under the European testing standards. Two electric motors power the Audi Q4 e-tron with a combined output of 225 kW, or roughly 300 horsepower.
Audi says the Q4 e-tron will reach 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds on way to a top speed of 180 km/h. The 82-kWh battery pack can be charged to 80 percent in about 30 minutes, again according to Audi.
Measuring just 4.59 meters, the Audi Q4 e-tron is smaller than the larger e-tron Quattro arriving on the market in June. Its length puts the Q4 e-tron in between the Q3 and Q5, althougt it’s closer to the latter.
The interior is built using eco-friendly materials. The seats are covered in a special green material that can reflect sunlight in order to keep the cabin’s climate controlled.
With the new Audi Q4 e-tron concept, Audi is moving closer to its goal of having 12 fully electric vehicles by 2025. Other models coming include a production version of the spectacular Audi e-tron GT unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show last November.
