At the 2019 Geneva Motor Show more than a year ago, Audi unveiled the Audi Q4 e-tron concept. With this model he showed what his electric SUVs would be like, but it was not the only variation. Today Audi presented the new Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron concept, a sport version It shows what we can expect from Audi’s compact electric SUV by 2021 when it goes into production.
SUVs are more fashionable than ever and Audi has decided to join the current market’s preferred option with a new sportier model. he Sportback positions itself as a more streamlined alternative to the Audi Q4 e-tron, incorporating even more curved lines and a more aggressive slope than the initial model.
Audi’s most dynamic electric SUV
In the exterior design, this is where we will find the most changes compared to last year’s Audi Q4 e-tron concept. Its front end is distinguished by a particularly large grille and a remarkable “e-throne” inscribed and illuminated at the front. Its rear, on the other hand, rises a little at the bottom and reveals fairly thin lights joined by a single band.
The curved and sloped roof is relevant to the overall appearance of the Audi electric vehicle to give it that more adventurous or sporty look. The plastic wings at the lower body and its height also help.
If we go to Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron concept interior We’re going to find a considerably large space (at least that’s the feel that’s reflected in the pictures), which probably helps the 2.77-meter wheelbase. But what matters is its technological section, where Audi puts 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and central touchscreen. In addition to this, the inclusion of a screen is relevant head held high or the virtually mandatory wireless charger for smartphones. Last detail of the interior, Audi boasts of using recycled materials for the upholstery.
Enter the engine section, the vehicle comes with Volkswagen MEB platform, also used by the Volkswagen ID. 4. This allows you to have two electric motors of 225 kW, which are 300 HP of power with 310 Nm of maximum torque. It has an Audi Quattro drive when using one engine on the front axle and the other on the rear.
And what does this engine allow? According to Audi a top speed of 180 km / h with an acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 6.3 seconds. For this, it will use the 82 kWh battery that it carries inside and which, approved in the WLTP cycle, promises a autonomy the 450 km. To charge the battery, it is possible to use a maximum charge point of 125 kW, which should fill it to 80% in half an hour.
The foundations of the Audi Q4 range
As the name suggests, the Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron concept this is a vehicle concept and not exactly the final model that we will see. While Audi says this is pretty much what we can expect, there may be slight changes once it goes into production. The Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron concept and the Audi Q4 e-tron concept serve to lay the foundation for the next Audi Q4.
They should come in in production early 2021 and in electric models we will find a sporty variant, which, probably, closely resembles this concept Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron. the the first deliveries will take place in the middle of next year.
