The new Audi Q4 Sportback E-Tron will be unveiled this afternoon. The first variant of the compact electric SUV, whose exterior design has been filtered on the networks, allows us to look at the aggressive proposal of the first Audi under the MEB platform.
As we can see, the Q4 Sportback e-Tron will have a reasonably angular and sporty body that is part of the German group’s strategy of offering current and spicier versions of its new electric models usually accompanied by a somewhat more aerodynamic and curiously of better autonomy.
The details of the new model will be released today, but what we do know is that it will maintain aspects of the concept, such as its body of 4.59m long and 1.9m wide. Something that places it in a slightly shorter and narrower size than an Audi Q5.
But thanks to its MEB platform, and a wheelbase of about 2,770mm, the interior should enjoy quite high levels offering more space than the conventional model for both occupants and cargo. Without a doubt, a significant point for the Q4 e-Tron.
As for the mechanical proposal, this will have to be confirmed in the afternoon during its official presentation, but everything indicates that it will have a dual-motor system with one in charge of pushing from the rear axle with a power of about 202 HP. In contrast, the second will have less energy. It will be located on the front axle where it will help in tasks such as going into action when traction is lost or driving at highway speeds to reduce consumption—all with a total power that should be around 300 hp.
A propulsion system that will be powered by a battery of 82 gross kWh, 77 useful kWh, which will allow it to achieve a range of about 450 kilometers under the WLTP cycle. It can be recharged up to 80% in about 30 minutes thanks to its capacity to access powers of 125 kW.
