The new Audi Q4 e-tron is a premium compact electric SUV that has just arrived on the market in Canada and the United States.
The Q4 e-tron is powered by an 82 kWh battery that provides the dual-motor versions, the Q4 50 e-tron and Q4 50 e-tron Sportback, with an EPA estimated range of 241 miles (387 kilometers).
The range estimates for the single-motor Q4 40 e-tron has not been announced yet, but power figures have been announced. The single-motor will produce 201 horsepower and 229 lb-ft of torque, while the dual-motor should make 295 horsepower and 339 lb-ft of torque.
As well as adding All-Wheel Drive, the dual-motor versions can tow up to 2,600 pounds (1,179 kg) while the single-motor Q4 40 e-tron is not recommended for towing.
The battery can be charged from 5% to 80% in 38 minutes on a DC fast charger, at up to 125 kilowatts.
As with some other Audi SUVs, the Q4 e-tron will be offered in a “normal” shaped SUV form and in a sportier, coupe-like SUV shape, called the Sportback. Contrary to what its appearance leads to believe, the Sportback actually has more trunk space than the other Q4’s, 26.1 cubic feet (736 liters) instead of 24.8 cubic feet (679 liters).
The optional Matrix-design headlights make the Q4 e-tron the first vehicle to feature customisable daytime running lights which let the driver choose the design showed on the headlamps of the vehicle during the day.
Prices in the United States start at $43,900 for the Q4 40 e-tron, $49,900 for the Q4 50 e-tron and $52,700 for the Q4 e-tron Sportback.
Canada will only receive the All-Wheel Drive Q4 50 e-tron and Q4 50 e-tron Sportback, with base prices of $59,950 and $67,600 respectively.
