Audi Q4 E-tron concept previewed

15th Feb 2019 6:00 am

The German carmaker shows first sketches of electric SUV concept to be unveiled at Geneva; previews upcoming Q4 and next generation of electric Audis.


Audi has revealed the first official sketches of its Q4 E-tron concept ahead of the car’s unveiling, which is due in March at the Geneva motor show.

It has not yet been made clear if this concept directly previews the same Q4 (expected to launch later this year) which has already been spotted in camouflage undergoing winter testing. It does, however, provide some insight into the next generation of Audi's electric models following the E-tron SUV and E-tron GT sports sedan.

The sketches show a compact SUV with coupé-like styling, an expansive front grille and illuminated E-tron branding on the front bumper and side sills. The car seems to have traditional door mirrors instead of the system of digital cameras and interior touchscreens which were offered on the E-tron SUV. Audi’s Matrix LED headlights seem to be featured as well.

A sketch of the car's interior shows a driver-focused dashboard that borrows elements from the new and recently launched Q3, with buttons largely removed in favour of touch-sensitive screens and panels.

The production of the Q4 E-tron is expected to begin in early 2021 – a year after the standard Q4 model is due to go on sale.
