A year ago the Audi e-tron made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show and now the production model is already making its way to South Africa.
This year Audi is using the show to unveil the Q4 e-tron concept, which is a compact four-door SUV with a close relation to the e-tron. Where the e-tron looks relatively normal, the Q4 is slightly more wild.
The Q4 uses two electric motors to make a combined 225kW of power. As is typical for Audi, the driving power of the concept vehicle is brought to the road with quattro all-wheel drive.
It accelerates to 100km/h in 6.3 seconds and on to an electronically limited top speed of 180km/h.
A large battery with a capacity of 82 kilowatt hours takes up almost the entire space in the underbody area between the axles. The range of over 450 kilometres – in line with the WLTP standard – is claimed to be the benchmark in the class.
The Audi Q4 e-tron concept gives an advance look at what will already be the fifth series production electric vehicle that the manufacturer will introduce by the end of 2020.
