Audi Q4 E-tron priced for Australia ahead of mid-2024 release date


Audi has confirmed pricing and some specifications of its first fully-electric vehicle to land in Australia for less than $100,000 – the midsize Q4 and Q4 Sportback.

Unlike Audi’s existing battery EVs (BEVs), the Q4 is not pitched at the luxury end of the maker’s range. Instead, the EV will slot logically between the Q3 and Q5 in the brand’s lineup.

Sized at around 4.6 metres in length, the Q4 is a five-seat SUV available in a traditional body style or a more rakish Sportback coupe-SUV format.

Both versions use an 82kWh battery with about 77kWh of usable space. 210kW/545Nm rear-wheel-drive (RWD) and 250kW/679Nm all-wheel-drive (AWD) versions are coming to Australia in both body styles.

The big news for leasing customers is that the Q4 E-tron will be priced beneath the luxury car tax (LCT) threshold in ‘45’ RWD form, with the $88,300 (before on-road cost) pricing making it eligible for the fringe benefits tax waiver when novated.

But it’s a big jump to the better-equipped Q4 E-tron 55 with AWD. That model, whose 5.4sec 0-100km/h time is 1.3sec quicker than the 45 RWD, is priced at $108,500 for the SUV version and $109,500 for the Sportback coupe-SUV.

Final range figures are still forthcoming for Australia. A recent rear-motor upgrade and other efficiency-led changes mean that maximum range is 562km for the Q4 E-tron.

That said, Australian specs are not the bare minimum globally, so expect to see official range land closer to 500km for both powertrains.

That would place the Q4 E-tron’s power consumption at around 15.4kWh/100km. Peak charging speeds are 135kW DC for the RWD car and 175kW for the AWD model.

Space wise, the sub-4.6m Q4 offers 520L of boot space for the wagon body style and, unusually, a slightly larger 535L for the Sportback. Both are advertised as offering 1450L with the rear seats folded.

As an Audi first, the Q4 offers customisable Matrix LED headlights, where owners can choose between different light signatures.

Another Q4 tech treat is the augmented reality head-up (AR HUD) system. This system reflects a two-layer display in the windscreen, one layer for status data and another for augmented reality information that appears floating in the distance.
