Audi Q4 e-tron and Q4 Sportback e-tron production versions are now officialWith the Audi Q4 e-tron and the Q4 Sportback e-tron, the brand with the Four Rings presents its first purely electric cars in the compact segment.

Both cars include a wide range of drives - from the city cruiser to the powerful quattro. They are being launched on the European markets with two different battery sizes and three motor line-ups. In the Q4 35 e-tron and Q4 40 e-tron a permanently excited synchronous machine (PSM) on the rear wheels provides the drive – these two models, along with the R8 V10 RWD high-performance sports car, are the only series-production Audi models with purely rear-wheel drive. The Q4 50 e-tron quattro as the sporty

The entry-level models Audi Q4 35 e-tron are equipped with the compact battery that has a net energy content of 52 kWh (55 kWh gross). An electric motor with an output of 125 kW (170 PS) and torque of 310 Nm provides the drive. In both body variants, it accelerates the electric SUV from 0 to 100 km/h in 9.0 seconds and produces a governed top speed of 160 km/h. The Q4 35 e-tron can cover up to 341 kilometers (211.9 mi) (WLTP cycle) on a single battery charge, while the Q4 Sportback 35 e-tron does up to 349 kilometers (216.9 mi) (WLTP). The average energy consumption in WLTP, depending on trim version, is 19.1 to 17.0 kWh per 100 kilometers (62.1 mi) (WLTP) for the Q4 35 e-tron and 18.6 to 16.6 kWh for the Q4 Sportback 35 e-tron.

The Audi Q4 40 e-tron features the large battery, which stores a net 77 kWh of energy (82 kWh gross). The electric motor generates 150 kW (204 PS) and 310 Nm here. A standard sprint takes 8.5 seconds, and here, too, the propulsion tops out at a speed of 160 km/h. One charge is enough for up to 520 kilometers (WLTP). According to WLTP the Audi Q4 40 e-tron uses an average of 19.3 to 17.3 kWh per 100 kilometers (62.1 mi).

The top models Q4 50 e-tron quattro and Q4 Sportback 50 e-tron quattro also run on the 77 kWh battery (82 kWh gross). It supplies two electric motors that combine to produce a maximum output of 220 kW (299 PS)

and 460 Nm (339.3 lb-ft) of torque, while making electric all-wheel drive become a reality. The rear motor generates 150 kW (204 PS) and 310 Nm, the front motor 80 kW (109 PS) and 162 Nm. The electric motors keep reserves available for certain driving situations, which is why the sum of their individual outputs exceeds the drive’s total output.

Both model variants sprint from a standing start to highway speed in 6.2 seconds and continue on to reach a top speed of 180 km/h. They have ranges of up to 488 and 497 (Sportback) kilometers respectively in WLTP. The average energy consumption for the Q4 50 e-tron quattro in WLTP is 19.9 to 17.9 kWh. The Sportback, which is available optionally with distinctly sporty tires, consumes 20.9 to 17.6 kWh.

Whether it's a rear-wheel or all-wheel drive – a permanently excited synchronous motor (PSM) gets to work on the rear axle in all models. It lies parallel to the axle just in front of the wheel center and sends its torque to a one-speed transmission with a differential. Its ratio in the models with rear-wheel drive is 13:1, in the electric all-wheel drive it is 11.5:1. The motor weighs 90 kg and is water-cooled.

The electric all-wheel drive in the Q4 e-tron top models has an asynchronous motor (ASM) on the front wheels that can rev at up to 14,000 rpm. It is installed coaxially and has combined cooling with coolant and oil. Its one-speed transmission has a ratio of 10.0:1, and the whole unit comes in at around 60 kilograms on the scales.

Both the compact electric SUVs from Audi have a battery that comes in two different sizes, depending on the variant of the model. The Q4 35 e-tron uses a compact battery that stores a net energy content of 52 kWh (55 kWh gross). It consists of eight modules and weighs about 350 kilograms (771.6 lb). The Q4 40 e-tron and Q4 50 e-tron quattro have the large battery on board, with a net energy content of 77 kWh (82 kW gross). This version comprises 12 modules and weighs about 500 kilograms (1,102.3 lb).

The Audi Q4 e-tron will be launched on the European markets in June 2021, with the Sportback models following in the late summer. In Germany, prices start at EUR 41,900 for the Q4 35 e-tron. The Q4 40 e-tron starts at EUR 47,500 and the Q4 50 e-tron quattro – including advanced exterior – at EUR 52,900. The Sportback will be around EUR 2,000 more.

Two Edition models, each available in two body variants and all drive variants, accompany the market launch – the elegant Edition One in geyser blue and the progressive and sporty Edition One in typhoon gray. Its exterior is distinguished by the S line, dark privacy glazing in the rear, and black attachments highlight the vehicle’s features. The Matrix LED headlights and the rear lights are also darkened. The Edition models come with 21-inch wheels in the Aero design on the geyser blue Edition One. On the typhoon gray Edition One, the wheels are finished in bronze, as are the laminated Audi rings on the C-pillars.

The interior design is based on the S line interior, in the geyser blue Edition model the sport seats come in a mix of black artificial leather and leather. The Q4 e-tron in typhoon gray has steel-gray upholstery with bronze-colored contrasting stitching. On the German market, the Edition models all come with a EUR 6,195 higher price tag than the regular models.
