The news Audi Q4 e-tron and Q4 Sportback e-tronnot only bring the electric revolution to their class but also combine a unique sporty driving pleasure combined with premium comfort and luxurious character.
Wanting to make electric drive much more affordable and economical to a wider audience, the Audi creates the first compact electric SUV, combining a very impressive design with a unique sense of quality and sporty driving behavior.
To achieve this, it equipped the new Q4 e-tron with the most advanced in electric propulsion systems.while at the same time providing it with all those features in the frame and the suspensions that give it a sporty character on the road.
Tο Q4 e-tron and Q4 Sportback e-tron have what is most modern in electric motors, batteries and control systems, so as to always ensure the highest possible efficiency and the top features that electrification offers in a new and much more attractive driving sensation.
The Q4 35 e-tron and Q4 40 e-tron have an electric motor that drives the rear wheels, with power 170 PS (125 kW) and 204 PS (150 kW) respectively. The top version Q4 50 e-tron quattro has two electric motors, thus acquiring quattro characteristics.
Maximum power 299 PS (220 kW), ensures acceleration from 0-100 km / h in just 6.2 seconds while the electronically limited final speed is at 180 km / h.
Particular attention has been paid to the placement of the battery, which is located below the passenger compartment. The engineers of the company have been placed as low as possible on the body, thus ensuring that there will be a low center of gravity and the ideal load distribution on each axis at a rate of 50:50.
At the same wavelength is the design of the suspension that follows the philosophy of every modern Audi . It has McPherson struts at the front and a very sophisticated multi-link arrangement at the rear axle.
It is important that the front suspension is mounted on a separate subframe for better operation and insulation of the road while the wide tracks at 1,587 mm front and 1,565 mm rear, create a vehicle that “treads” properly on the road and is clearly safer and safer at high speeds and with better control in turns.
At the same time Audi Q4 e-tron and Q4 Sportback e-tron have wheels from 19 to 21 inches. Apart from the basic version, they are all made of aluminum and each size includes special aerodynamic designs.
In the dimension of 20 inches, two wheels come from Audi Sport GmbH, which has designed all four options of 21 inches. One of them comes in a matte bronze finish, another in gray platinum. The third is an Aero wheel, which is largely covered with black plastic inserts.
The brakes are also very careful, an area where always the Audi stood out with their performance. Depending on the engine version there are large front disc brakes, while advanced technology drums are available at the back.
This option for rear brakes is particularly smart, as these brakes have much lower wear and less maintenance and are corrosion resistant. In fact, because it is an electric car, Wheel brakes have little use in everyday driving, as most decelerations are made with the electric motor.
Thus, in addition to braking, there is also a recovery of kinetic energy and parallel charging of the battery, thus increasing the autonomy and reducing the stress on the brakes.
Its buyers Q4 e-tron have at their disposal optional a sport suspension that lowers the body by 15 mm features and is standard on the S-Line version. There is also the Audi Drive Sellect system with five operating modes, “comfort”, “auto”, “efficiency”, “individual” and “dynamic”. There is also the “range” option through which the driver chooses to operate his car with the maximum possible economy for greater autonomy.
Audi offers the “dynamic plus” package which has an adjustable suspension, for even more comfort and advanced operating features. The shock absorbers in this case change their operating characteristics in real time within a time of 5 milliseconds, offering top operating characteristics and a unique feeling in sporty driving.
To all this are added all the modern driver assistance systems, which are available as standard from the original version. Among them are systems such as adaptive cruise assist which gives the new Q4 e-tron autonomous driving features, for greater safety and more comfort and relaxed driving.
Overall, the Audi manages to present a state-of-the-art compact electric SUV which impresses with its design and sporty driving presence, combining it with a premium comfort and luxury, faithful to the tradition of the German company.
