Product Overview

Audi Q4 e-tron is compact an electric crossover that sits between the Q3 and Q5. It is available both with a standard roof or a hunchback "coupe" roof, which is named in Audi-speak Sportback.
The Q4 e-tron is available with three power levels and two battery sizes. The 50 e-tron has two AC electric motors driving both axles, while the 35 and 40 e-tron each has a single AC motor driving the rear wheels. Performance is on par with the latest Q5 from 2020.
A somewhat interesting characteristic of the Q4 e-tron is the adoption of MacPherson struts at the front axles: Traditionally, Audi has always favored multi-link setups. Unsurprisingly, the Q4 e-tron is available with a range of increasingly large wheels. Starting from 19 inches, they go all the way to 21 inches. This reflects the emphasis now placed on how the car looks over the driving dynamics.
Inside, the new Q4 e-tron is packed with the latest car techs and driver aid systems. Notable is the center console that is oriented towards the driver, giving the interior a "cockpit" feel.

Reviewers from autocar have found:
This is a quiet, refined, mature-feeling and fairly precise-handling zero-emissions family car. In many ways, it’s precisely the sort you’d have expected Audi to make - but not in every way. It has impressive space and practicality and creditable electric range, too. But it doesn’t have the classic Audi design appeal you might have expected of it.
Pros
  • Decent range
  • Decent electric range
  • Good range
Cons
  • Lacklustre cabin quality
  • Lack of practicality

Reviewers from autoexpress have found:
The all-electric Q4 e-tron SUV ticks all the boxes for family life. It is expected to become the German company’s biggest seller behind the A3 hatchback. Outshines other premium mid-size SUV rivals, such as the Mercedes EQA, on range, with a claimed maximum of 316 miles.
Pros
  • Comfortable to drive
  • High-quality interior
Cons
  • Expensive compared to rivals
  • Lack of standard kit

Reviewers from carmagazine have found:
The top-of-the-line Q4 50 e-Tron quattro costs over £10k less than the base full-size e-tron SUV. A 10-minute plug-in stint typically extends the range by 80 miles. The official consumption spectrum ranges from 3.0 to 3.8 miles per kWh. Up front, there is enough room to swing a tiger kitten.
Pros
  • Class-leading electric performance
  • Powerful engines
Cons
  • Expensive compared to the e-Tron GT
