Audi is investing heavily in the conversion to electric power. The new Audi Q4 e-tron electric SUV has just arrived in showrooms, and the first customer deliveries will take place soon. The electric car list is now growing with another model: the Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron can now be ordered via the Audi dealers who will launch the model in October.
Audi has taken a strong position in the electric car conversion with the larger electric SUV Audi e-tron and the sports car Audi e-tron GT. The program is now being expanded with two expected bestsellers. The Audi Q4 e-tron is already in the car showrooms and will soon be delivered to the first customers. In addition, sales of the Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron are also starting now.
Audi has high expectations and believes that the Q4 e-tron can improve its best-selling electric car as early as next year. It fits many of the customers in terms of size and has an attractive design and price level. Audi dealers meet a great deal of interest, and many are considering taking the step over to electric cars.
The models are offered in three versions, where the top version 50 e-tron quattro has a maximum power of 299 hp and twin electric motors. In addition to the four-wheel-drive 50 e-tron quattro, rear-wheel-drive 35 e-tron of 170 hp and 40 e-tron of 204 hp are also offered, of which the Q4 Sportback e-tron 40 is expected to start sales very soon. Familiar to the 40 and 50 e-tron is the larger battery of net 77 kWh, which gives a range of up to 511 km in the 40 e-tron according to WLTP, and that they have a maximum charging capacity of 125 kW for fast charging stations.
The elegant coupe-shaped silhouette in the Q4 Sportback e-tron reduces air resistance and thus increases the range slightly compared to the Q4 e-tron. The luggage holds 535 litres up to the privacy screen, which is 15 litres more than the SUV, and the ceiling height is only 2.4 cm lower in the rear seat despite the coupe line. However, the total luggage space with folded seats is larger in the Q4 e-tron, with 1490 litres than 1460 litres for the Q4 Sportback e-tron. The price supplement for the Q4 e-tron Sportback is 1,750 euros for the 50 e-tron quattro and 2,200 euros for the 35 e-tron. The Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron 40 has a later start of sales than the other versions.
