Audi is preparing the Q4 e-tron compact crossover for the luxury-EV spotlight when it launches in early 2021. Adding to the growing lineup of all-electric e-tron models, the Q4 will accompany the e-tron SUV and the future e-tron GT sedan when it eventually goes on sale. It’ll be the first Audi to use Volkswagen’s MEB modular electric vehicle platform. The Q4 e-Tron will go up against other small luxury electric SUVs such as the Tesla Model Y and the Volvo XC40 Recharge when it goes on sale in 2021. It’ll offer an 82.0-kWh battery with a range of up to 280 miles. Unlike the larger e-tron SUV, this smaller model will seat only four. A fastback Q4 e-tron Sportback model is also expected to be available and was previewed by a concept car in July 2020.
The interior is a technological showcase of all of Audi’s latest and greatest gadgets. A digital gauge display is standard, and a large infotainment touchscreen is angled toward the driver for easier access to its various menus and features. The Q4 e-tron concept is strictly a four-seater, with front and rear bucket seats covered in faux-suede upholstery with metal e-tron–branded detailing under the headrests. Interior space should be about the same as the gas-powered Q5, which is plenty roomy for four adults and their cargo.
