What the Critics Say

"Once you're behind the steering wheel, the vehicle speaks for itself. After the somewhat lackluster Lyriq, which was the last electric SUV I drove, and tired of those ubiquitous Teslas I see all around California, the Audi Q4 e-Tron is like a sweet exhale. I practically wanted to embrace it." - Bloomberg

"The Q4 e-Tron's steering is nicely weighted and communicative, and is tuned for everyday driving. The SUV's 33.5-foot turning circle (37.7 feet with AWD) makes it feel maneuverable and nimble in low-speed parking and parking-adjacent situations." - Cars.com

What's New for 2023

Following its debut last year, the Audi Q4 e-tron returns for 2023 with an assortment of key updates. Drivers can now opt for a lower-priced rear-wheel drive variant that also boasts an impressive 265 miles of total EV range. Also, the Q4 e-tron also now comes standard with a larger 11.6-inch touchscreen display. Choosing the more powerful 50 powertrain means that you'll receive the S Line exterior appearance package as standard.

Audi Q4 e-tron Styling

Striking Exterior

Instantly recognizable as an Audi from first glance, the Q4 e-tron proudly wears the signature Singleframe grille flanked by available matrix LED headlights. Other iconic design cues of the Q4 e-tron include prominently modeled fenders of all four wheels, large 19-inch alloy wheels, and a flowing character line that spans the entire length of the body. Placing an emphasis on its potent performance capabilities, this SUV also features a sloping roofline that cascades towards the rear. Clever positioning of the batter within the underbody is accentuated by the rocker panel area between both axles. At the rear, you'll also notice a unique broad light band that connects the two lamp units on the rear end of the Audi Q4 e-tron. When finished in the available Solar Sky exterior color, the paint reduces the build-up of heat on the surface of the body and the interior significantly.

Audi Q4 e-tron Performance

Electrifying Performance

Powering the Audi Q4 40 e-tron is an electric motor powering the rear wheels and producing 201 horsepower. Models equipped with quattro all-wheel drive ( designated as Q4 50 e-tron models ), add an additional electric motor to power the front wheels and this pair of asynchronous electric motors combine to produce 295 horsepower.

The Q4 e-tron has the agility to excel across the entire spectrum of road surface conditions. Its large 82 kW battery delivers enough capacity to travel up to 265 miles on a single charge. The battery is located low in the underbody, giving the Q4 e-tron superior handling and agility. On AWD models, an electronic control ensures that the torque distribution is distributed evenly within fractions of a second. The modular electrification platform (MEB) on which the Audi Q4 e-tron is based provides the ideal basis for a truly remarkable electric SUV.
