Audi Q4 E-Tron, Sportback debut with massive augmented-reality HUD
Be the newest and smallest member of Audi's growing family of E-Tron electric vehicles.
The all-new Q4 e-tron, which makes it digital debut this week.
Now like the larger e-tron, the Q4 e-tron is available in either an upright SUV profile or with a more aerodynamic Sportback silhouette.
Globally, Audi will offer the Q4 in three configurations.
Six, if you separate the Sportback models out.
There's the bass q4 35 e Tron, which makes a 56 kilowatt hour battery pack to a 168 horsepower motor, sending 229 pound feet of twist to the rear axle.
The q4 40 features a larger 77 kilowatt hour battery and an increased to around 201 horsepower.
It's also the farthest ranging model with an estimated 323 miles on Europe's W LTP.
cycle for the FPV.
Take those range estimates with a grain of salt EPA numbers are almost always more conservative than the W LTP.
So they expect us slightly lower range when making apples to apples comparisons here in the States at the top of the heap of the dual motor q 450.
E Tron quattro.
But the total output of 295 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque.
This is the most potent model and hustles from 0 to 62 miles per hour in just six point two seconds.
It also boasts a towing capacity of just over 2,600 pounds here in the US will only get three of the six configurations all with a larger 77 km/h.
For the SUV that means q 40 tron 40 and 50 quattro, the Sportback will only arrive here with the 50 quattro spec
Audi leapfrogs the digital display arms race by Outfitting the Q4 e Tron with a 70 inch display.
Okay, not really but the next generation augmented reality head up display virtually appears at the equivalent of a 70 inch screen projected around 33 feet ahead of the driver when the large hood is projected onto the E Tron windshield With this massive virtual space out, he is able to overlay turn by turn directions and full color Driver Assist information directly and hopefully thankfully onto the drivers field of vision.
Down on the dashboard the driver is treated to a 10 and a quarter inch version of Audi's Virtual Cockpit digital instrument cluster and in 11.6 inch version of the automakers MMI infotainment display.
That's the largest Saudi currently offer.
In addition to a suite of onboard apps and maps, wireless Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto comes standard out.
He's also a partner with Sonos for the cue fourth premium audio system.
The first in-car partnership for the home audio brand, I believe the union bring Sonos has expertise in digital audio quality and found staging, but the Q4 won't feature the network speaker tech that the brand is perhaps best known for its home system.
Systems, at least not yet.
How do you say this working on it?
It wouldn't be an Audi debut without some attention paid to unique lighting tech.
The Q4 is the first Audi model to feature customizable daytime running light signatures with four patterns selectable via the SUV's MMI touch screen.
Green, outback you'll find a full width LED light bar with wake up and departure animations.
And in regions where legal.
The Q4 can be equipped with the automakers LED matrix led adaptive headlamps.
The 2022 Audi Q4 e tron is currently ramping up production and goes on filling Europe in June of this year.
Pricing starts at around 41,900 euro without 50k US For the base 35 e Tron SUV, Sportback models command a 2000 euro premium due to more standard equipment, North American availability will follow in the fall.
Pricing hasn't yet been announced.
But remember, we don't get that small battery base model.
So you can't just do a currency conversion plus They'll probably be some adjustments for our market.
Make sure you stay tuned to the roadshow comm for more detail that they emerge.
We'll be updating you there.
And before you ask, yes, we will be comparing it to see how it stacks up against Tesla and the rest luck.
