The brand-new 2022 Audi Q4 e-tron is coming to the markets early in 2022. The production will start in the coming weeks and we already know most of the details. New Q4 e-tron is an all-electric SUV, joining the e-tron GT sedan in the brand’s growing lineup of electric vehicles. This model will offer plenty of luxury and even the Q4 Sportback model will be in offer.
The Q4 e-tron variant will be slightly smaller than the average mid-size SUV and it shares the same underpinnings as the Q5 crossover. Audi will provide two electric motors and a larger battery pack, so the new model will deliver almost 300 miles of electric driving range. The biggest rivals are Volvo XC40 and Tesla Model Y.
The upcoming 2022 Audi Q4 e-tron will deploy Volkswagen’s MEB platform. This comes as no surprise, as the Q5 crossover already offers the same architecture. First spy photos are online and we are looking in the heavy-camouflaged Q4 e-tron SUV. This model looks surprisingly closer to the Q4 e-tron concept from 2019.
This SUV will arrive with a 108.7-inches long wheelbase and this model is 180.7 inches long. Thanks to that, the Q4 e-tron is almost dimensionally the same as the Volkswagen ID.4 variant. Spy photos are showing a modern SUV with a sportier stance. However, we are waiting for the camouflage to come off, as we expect a couple of surprises in terms of styling.

On the other hand, this model will arrive with few unique features, including the toggle-switch gear selector and the squared-off steering wheel. The original concept was shown with four seats but the production model will offer a room for five passengers.
The cabin room is generous, but the cargo area is not so great. The MMI infotainment system is up to date, along with the 10.3-inch digital gauge display. Moreover, there is a 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen that is standard, Optionally, you can buy the larger 11.6-inch unit. We also expect to see a Wi-Fi hotspot, wireless charging, and the latest safety aids.
