The Q4 E-Tron and Q4 E-Tron Sportback are geared toward first-time EV buyers who want a mainstream, well-built, luxury SUV. Based on the same MEB electric platform as parent company Volkswagen, it is similar to the VW ID.4.
Unlike their EV competitors, Audi is electrifying their current line of ICE SUVs. Compared to futuristic and spacey models like the 2023 Genesis GV60 and Kia EV6, Audi’s crossovers appear to be very familiar vehicles that only have an electric powertrain. Current Q3 or Q5 drivers will get a familiar cockpit and physical buttons in addition to a large center screen.
The 2022 version has a battery capacity of 82 kWh, and a 5% to 80% charge time in about 38 minutes on a public DC fast charger. Power is 295 horsepower and the Q4 e-tron accelerates from 0-60 mph in 5.8 seconds. If you want more power, you’ll have to wait for the 2023 e-tron, with 402 horsepower, 490 pound-feet of torque, and 0-60 mph in 5.5 seconds.
Prices for the 2022 version are quite reasonable: Premium $53,300, Premium Plus $57,400, and Prestige $60,900. If you want the more powerful and luxurious 2023 model, you’re going to pay the price: the 2023 Q4 e-tron costs $70,800 for the premium version; The Premium Plus is $77,800, and the Chronos version is $86,400. All of this is before federal and state tax credits.
