2021 Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron – Electric SUV Coupé /302 hp/311-mile range. Audi has officially unveiled the Q4 Sportback e-tron concept, which previews an upcoming production model that will be introduced next year.
Essentially a crossover coupe version of the Q4 e-tron concept, the Sportback features a sporty front fascia with a fully enclosed grille that is flanked by slender LED headlights. The model also has large air intakes and a prominent “e-tron” badge beneath the grille.
Bigger changes occur further back as the concept has a rakish windscreen and a steeply sloping roof. There are also muscular fenders, sporty side skirts and 22-inch alloy wheels with a two-tone finish.
Rounding out the highlights are a large diffuser and a sporty liftgate with an integrated spoiler. Elsewhere, there are slender taillights and an illuminated e-tron badge.
Moving into the cabin, drivers sit behind a flat-bottomed steering wheel and find themselves looking at a digital instrument cluster. To the right, is a 12.3-inch ‘floating’ infotainment system and minimalist climate controls. We can also see a streamlined center console and a push-button shifter.
Other notable highlights include microfiber upholstery, metallic trim and gloss black accents. There are also two rear seats which are integrated into a wide bench.
Motivation is provided by two electric motors that are feed by an 82 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. The rear motor is the primary means of propulsion and it produces 201 hp (150 kW / 204 PS) and 229 lb-ft (310 Nm) of torque. If driver need more power or conditions warrant more traction, the front motor – which is rated at 101 hp (75 kW / 102 PS) and 111 lb-ft (150 Nm) of torque – kicks on.
This setup gives the crossover a combined output of 302 hp (225 kW / 306 PS). It enables the concept to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 6.3 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 112 mph (180 km/h).
In terms of range, Audi says drivers can expect to travel over 280 miles (450 km) on a single charge in the WLTP cycle. However, the company also mentioned a rear-wheel drive variant with a range in excess of 311 miles (500 km).
In regards to charging, Audi says the concept can be charged at a rate of up to 125 kW. This will allow the crossover to get an 80% charge in a little more than 30 minutes.
The Q4 Sportback e-tron concept rides on the MEB platform and previews an upcoming production model that is slated to be introduced in 2021.
