Audi will launch an electric SUV called the Q4 E-tron next year, and it could potentially bring a new level of personalization that will be amazing.
A post from Autocar said, the Q4 e-tron uses the VW Group’s bespoke all-electric MEB platform, rather than the adapted MQ platform of the larger E-tron. Not only is it a platform designed to underpin EVs from the off, it should reduce complexity and build cost of the model. The interior is claimed to be more spacious than its dimensions suggest thanks to a substantial 2.77-metre wheelbase and the lack of any transmission tunnel. Despite the car’s official status as a concept, the interior, with its dual-screen layout and minimalist, touch-operated switchgear, looks like it could translate into production relatively easily.
The concept showcases the next-generation design of Audi design much like the E-tron GT, which will be launch at similar time in 2021, according to design boss Marc Lichte. He said: “We still have the Quattro look but surfaces are softer with reduced sharp lines. “The single-frame grille is inverted like the E-tron but this takes it a step further as it will always be body colour.”
An electric motor at each axle provides all-wheel drive, and together they make a stout 300 horsepower. Audi claims a zero-to-60-mph time of 6.3 seconds and a governed top speed of 112 mph. An 82.0-kWh battery provides around 280 miles of driving range. Since the Q4 e-tron is still a concept car, we haven’t had the chance to drive it to evaluate its ride and handling.
