Audi Q4 e-tron confirmed for Australia, arrives mid-2024

Audi Australia has confirmed it will be launching the new Q4 e-tron fully electric SUV next year, and says it will be offering traditional wagon and Sportback body styles.

The Audi Q4 e-tron and Q4 Sportback e-tron are essentially the electric alternatives to models such as the Q3 and Q3 Sportback, showcasing similar size and proportions.

Local specifications are yet to be confirmed, but as a guide, overseas models, which have been on sale since 2022, are presented with 52kWh and 77kWh batteries, with rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive options.

The top-spec dual-motor, all-wheel drive models produce up to 220kW and 460Nm, which is enough to see 0-100km/h done and dusted in a claimed 6.2 seconds. The range is 485km, but going for the 77kW single-motor option sees the range top out at 520km.

Badged as Q4 35 e-tron, Q4 40 e-tron, 45 e-tron and 50 e-tron, the lineup offers DC charging at up to 125kW and AC charging at up to 11kW. However, the entry model 35 is reduced to 100kW and 7.2kW.

Boot space is rated at 520L for the wagon, opening up to 1490L with the rear seats folded. Opting for the Sportback sees these volumes change to 535L and 1460L.

Inside, there are twin digital screens housed on a futuristic, angled dash design, with an open centre console area for storage. Again, Australian specs are yet to be confirmed so we don’t know what features will be standard on local models.

More details will be announced closer to its launch, set for mid-2024. Prices are likely to start from well above the Q3 and Q3 Sportback, which currently kick off from $50,600 and $54,100, respectively.
