Audi Q4 E-Tron concept: A small EV that's big on range
Meet the new Audi Q4 e-tron concept.
It's basically a compact, electric, and affordable SUV that'll reach production around 2020 and hit the road in early 2021.
Now what we basically got here is an electrified version of Audi's Q3 Sportback, which itself is a more coupe like version of the Q3 compact SUV.
Now I'm told that the Q4 e-tron is slightly longer then the Q3 and Q3 Sportback and that's because it has to make room for that big ol' 82 kilowatt hour battery in its floor.
That big ol' battery means that it's good for around 280 miles in electric cruising range on Europe's' WLTP standard.
Expect it to take a slight hit when it reaches the United States.
That battery is going to power a pair of electric motors one for each axle that combined make around 301 horsepower and that will boost this thing from 0 to 62 miles per hour in around 6.3 seconds not bad.
Those electric component from the Volkswagen group's flexible any B platform which also will underpin the larger E Tron SUV that will hit the road in the state later this year.
And those headlights are what Audi calls the digital signature lights.
They're a customizable set of LED lights.
And right now, they show a checker pattern.
But if you like something L-shaped or maybe a straight line, you can actually customize those in an interface and get the light signature that you want.
It's actually the first time that I've seen the ability to customize what your lights look like.
In fact we've got a very modern cabin that's very cut off what Audi is calling in augmented reality head up displayed now.
We can actually see with that, it looks like today in the car that's not moving or definitely looking forward to seeing what looks like.
And like I said, we expect to hit the road in 2021, but for now stay tuned to the rest of our 2019 coverage of the Geneva Auto Show right here on.
