By Wynand Goosen | Jul 08, 2020
Technically identical but individually styled is how Audi describes the Audi Q4 e-tron Concept revealed at the Geneva International Motor Show in 2019, and the SUV Coupe revealed today. The production version of the Audi Q4 e-tron Sportback will go in to production in 2021.
Like the Audi Q4 e-tron, the e-tron Sportback will be available in an AWD and RWD version. The Sportback is 10mm longer than the Q4 e-tron, and the fastback styling allows the Q4 e-tron Sportback to have a drag coefficient of 0.26 compared to the 0.27 of its sister model. The virtual driver display consists of a new large-format head-up display with augmented reality function. The 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen is positioned above the center console and tilted towards the driver for ease of operation.
The headline specifications for the Q4 e-tron Sportback is:
- RWD Range 500km / 312 miles
- AWD Range 450km / 282 miles
- Max Power AWD 225kW / 302hp
- Max Torque AWD 470N.m / 347lb.ft
- Battery 82kWh
The Q4 e-tron will be the seventh series production electric car by the manufacturer when introduced in 2021 and is based on the VW Group MEB platform. Audi plans to have 20 all-electric vehicles in its fleet by 2025 to achieve a 40% share of its total sales.
