Promoted | The Audi Q4 e-tron: high-tech space exploration

Let’s get those sci-fi cliches out of the way. The new fully electric Audi Q4 e-tron feels bigger on the inside than it looks on the outside. It’s high-tech driver-focused cabin and touch-sensitive controls have the sheen of an interstellar starship, while its all-electric powertrain offers driving performance that feels warp-speed.

Available at launch with a traditional SUV profile – with a sleek coupé-style Sportback available to order in June – the new Q4 e-tron has been designed to re-imagine what a compact electric SUV can be.

It blends city-friendly dimensions with a cleverly packaged interior that offers space more akin to a full-size SUV. A choice of electric rear-wheel drive powertrains or quattro all-wheel drive provide charged performance, with up to 316 miles of range on the Q4 Sport 40 e-tron and the option of 125kW high-capacity recharging that – in ideal conditions – can get you from 5% to 80% in as little as 38 minutes.

But, where the Audi Q4 e-tron really changes the game is in its driving technology.

Starship-style driving controls

The Audi Q4 e-tron’s new-generation double-spoke steering wheel breaks new ground with smartphone-style backlit controls that let you use touch and list-friendly swipe gestures, while providing gentle haptic feedback. 

Audi’s pace-setting premium Virtual Cockpit and large central MMI touchscreen with internet connectivity are standard across the Audi Q4 e-tron line-up – letting you share sat-nav and infotainment information across the two screens, either by intuitive voice control or fingertip command. 

The Audi Q4 e-tron’s MMI Navigation Plus and Audi Connect internet connectivity offers high-resolution Google Earth satellite images that deliver a crisper and clearer view of the world around you, as well as an ‘e-tron’ route planner that calculates your optimum route based on public charging points. 

It even shares data with other Audi vehicles through the cloud to deliver accurate traffic information, while also offering data for on-street parking alongside apps for news, weather and travel updates.
