Audi Q4 e-tron

0


The new electric powered Audi Q4 e-tron & Q4 Sportback e-tron are coming to Ireland in June with pricing starting from €41,465 on the road.

The premium brand shares the Volkswagen’s groups electric platform in the compact e-tron that also underpins the ID.4 and Skoda Enyaq. Audi of course has given its variant a premium makeover. The 4.95m long SUV has styling that seems quite blocky but premium buyers will be glad there is a prominent Audi grille. Despite the blocky style the Q4 e-tron achieves a drag coefficient of 0.28 and the Sportback 0.26. Packed with hi-tech Audi draws our attention to the augmented reality head-up display as a highlight that connects the virtual and the real worlds in “a totally new way”.

The highest performing version delivers up to 295hp with a 0 – 100km/h time of 6.3 seconds. Audi says the Q4 e-tron 40 and Q4 e-tron 50 quattro at a fast charge station (up to 125kW) need 38 minutes to charge from 5% to 80%. Audi also says “With a range varying from 330 – 511 kilometres on a full charge, the Audi Q4 e-tron is the embodiment of Living Progress”. We look forward to testing the car in full when it lands in Ireland.
