New Audi Q4 e-tron Production Begins

Built alongside the Volkswagen ID.4, the Audi Q4 should quickly find favour with premium EV buyers


  • It will be assembled in Zwickau, Audi’s birthplace.

  • The Q4 e-tron is assembled on VW’s MEB platform.

  • The final production model will be revealed in April.


The Audi Q4 e-tron should become an instant hit with European buyers when it hits the Old Continent this summer. The Q4 is a premium compact electric SUV that will be affordable and impressively spacious.

The all-new Audi Q4 will be assembled upon Volkswagen’s MEB platform that also underpins the ID.3 and ID.4, its assembly linemate. As an Audi, however, the Q4 will feature cutting-edge technology including an available 11.6-inch touchscreen display and an augmented reality head-up display. One of the compact e-tron’s highlights is its spacious interior which Audi claims to be on par with full-size SUVs.

Although the Q4 e-tron itself is interesting, the Zwickau plant is also noteworthy. Audi has gone to great lengths to help make the assembly process a carbon-neutral affair. It covers its entire energy needs using renewables and has a highly efficient combined-heat-and-power plant.

The anticipated Audi Q4 e-tron will make its official global debut this upcoming April. More details will be released at that time. This compact SUV is only another entry as part of Audi’s plan to launch more than 20 full-EVs by 2025.
