Audi readies fully-electric Q4 e-tron concept for Geneva


Despite reports about Audi and Porsche going back to the drawing board after tearing down a Tesla Model 3 and discovering that their American rival has a leg up in battery production costs (should that even be a surprise?), Audi is nevertheless pushing on with their second all-electric model, the Q4 e-tron.

The Q4 e-tron is expected to be low-slung, almost estate-like in profile.

To be shown at the coming Geneva Motor Show as a concept, the Q4 e-tron is earmarked for production in late 2020 or early 2021. No other technical details have been revealed at this point, but its combustion-powered equivalent is expected some time this year and speculated as a sportier, lower slung version of the Q3, inspired by various styling cues of the larger Q8.

The Q4 e-tron will likely incorporate a downsized version of the drivetrain of the e-tron which was unveiled in San Francisco last September, befitting its size, along with a cabin featuring lots of LCDs and touch controls.
