Reviewers from Autocar have found the following[***]:
The Q4 E-tron SUV first bobbed up as a concept in 2019. It is Audi's first foray into EVs for ordinary motorists. The car always feels neutral, well-planted and responsive, although not exactly agile. It's not truly sporty, because of its height and bulk, but it is smooth and serene to drive.

Reviewers from Autocar have found the following[***]:
In smaller-batteried 168bhp form, the Q4 E-tron can be had from just a whisker over £40,000. The version we're testing is slightly more expensive, but it combines a 201bhp rear-mounted electric motor with a drive battery of a usable 77kWh of capacity. It advertises some 316 miles of WLTP-lab-test-verified range.

Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Sentiment Score[*] 78%
Reviewers from Autoexpress have found the following[***]:
The new Q4 e-tron SUV is expected to become Audi's second biggest seller overall, after the A3 hatchback. It's the first Audi to be built on the Volkswagen Group's electric MEB platform, shared with Skoda's Enyaq and the upcoming Cupra Born. It answers the issues of ride comfort, build quality and iffy infotainment that blight VW's own ID models in a really appealing package.

Pros[**]
  • Elegant design
  • Excellent electric range
  • Lots of tech and tech
Cons[**]
  • Lack of practicality
  • Not the cheapest option

autoexpress[4]

Sentiment Score[*] 67%
Reviewers from Autoexpress have found the following[***]:
The Q4 e-tron Sportback is a coupe-SUV-shaped version of Audi's Mercedes EQA rival. Audi predicts this will be the preferred shape of around 16 per cent of all Q4 buyers. The 50 quattro drivetrain feels well executed too and goes some way to justifying its price increase over models with the single motor 40 drivetrain.

Pros[**]
  • Elegant styling
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Excellent infotainment system
Cons[**]
  • Not as good as the Q4 e-tron
  • Slightly heavier than the Q7

The Q4 e-Tron Sportback is Audi's third electric car. Based on the VW Group's meticulously planned MEB platform. The 40 comes with 201bhp and 228bhp, with an 82kwh battery that'll squeeze in 80 miles of net. The Q4 mid-range range can stretch to 316 miles, while the top speed is 99mph.

Reviewers from Carmagazine have found the following[***]:
The Q4 e-Tron raises the bar for looks, perceived quality, driveability and performance. Built in Zwickau on the same line as the ID twins, Audi's entry-level e-SUV is also offered in Sportback guise, with a slightly more coupe-like shape and a drag coefficient of 0.26. The line-up available at launch time consists of two rear-wheel-drive versions, the '35' and '40'

  • Comfortable ride
Cons[**]
