The upcoming Audi Q4 won’t include just one body style but two, the brand revealed on Tuesday. With the Q4 Sportback E-Tron concept, Audi presents a sexier alternative to the Q4 E-tron SUV concept, both of which it’s now confirmed are heading to production in summer 2021.
Unlike the larger E-Tron SUV and E-Tron Sportback, the Q4 models will be built on the VW Group modular (MEB) foundation that will underpin a generation of compact and mid-size vehicles.
Mechanically and electrically, nearly everything about the Q4 Sportback is carried over from the Q4 SUV. Per what Volkswagen and Audi have previously revealed about the MEB platform, the Q4 has a permanent-magnet motor in back, which it primarily uses, and a front asynchronous motor getting traction to the front wheels when needed. Together they make a total of 302 horsepower. The suspension is a front strut, rear multi-link layout with adaptive damping.
Both concept versions of the Q4 will accelerate from 0-62 mph in 6.3 seconds and have a top speed of 112 mph. Expect similar performance in production form as Audi says the concept offers a clear look ahead at the top-of-the-range engine line-up of the coming series production model.”
