First look: Audi new Q4 e-tron
Audi has revealed a glimpse into its future.
The German brand is preparing to expand its electric vehicle range, confirming plans for a new Q3-sized electric model, known as the Q4 e-tron.
The luxury car maker has released a series of teaser images confirming the existence of the Q4 e-tron ahead of its reveal at the 2019 Geneva motor show in March.
As previously reported by Drive, the Q4 e-tron is tipped to become Audi’s biggest-selling electric vehicle by the middle of the next decade with a price comparable to high-end versions of the new second generation Q3.
It is expected to be built on the Volkswagen Groups new MEB electric vehicle platform that will underpin a range of EVs, including the upcoming Volkswagen I.D. and its spin-offs which will include a re-born Dune Buggy.
Expected to be around the same size as Audi’s compact Q3 SUV and share styling inspiration with its larger e-tron sibling, this new smaller model will be the brands most affordable EV to date. The four-ring brand has stated it intends to offer 12 fully electric models by 2025, having already confirmed the e-tron GT sports coupe, which will borrow heavily from the Porsche Taycan, alongside the e-tron and now Q4.
Audi says the Q4 e-tron will enter production by the end of 2020.
