Adding a fourth and fifth fully electric model to its U.S. EV portfolio, Audi is primed to bring premium electric mobility to the heart of the market with the introduction of the 2022 Audi Q4 e-tron and Q4 Sportback e-tron.
The Q4 e-tron models are approachable, liveable SUVs with the sophistication and quality for which Audi is known.
Spacious interior dimensions and an efficient exterior are paired with leading technology to ensure the Q4 e-tron models raise the bar for today’s progressive luxury consumer. With the addition of these models, Audi plans to have more fully electric models on sale in the U.S. than any other luxury brand by the end of 2021.
Audi’s next step: the exterior design
With the Q4 e-tron and the Q4 Sportback e-tron, Audi has taken the next step in electric model design language.
The Q4 e-tron models bring design characteristics that impress thanks to the striking proportions – enclosed singleframe grille, short front overhangs, large wheels with staggered tires, and powerfully sculpted, muscular panels.
All lines are drawn with the greatest precision, and the surface treatment is clear and deliberate. In the Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron, the especially low coupe-style roofline ends in an expressively designed rear where the spoiler sits deep on the two-part window.
The brand’s progressive design is true to form in the Q4 e-tron, as functional as it is aerodynamic: The Q4 e-tron achieves a drag coefficient of 0.28, and the Q4 Sportback e-tron gets to an even lower figure, with a drag coefficient of 0.26. Unique sculpted side mirrors further enhance aerodynamics as well as acoustics.
Keeping innovation at the forefront, even at the brand’s most accessible EV entry point, the Q4 e-tron electric SUVs offer available Matrix design LED headlights with customizable daytime running light signatures – a world first.
The driver can switch between four running light signatures in the MMI touch operating system. At the rear, a light strip links the taillight units to each other and is available with animated coming-home and leaving-home functions. A choice of four exterior colors is available, with S line and black optic exterior elements offered as well.
