Most don’t realize that Audi has been in the Electric Vehicle (EV) game for a few years now where they started in the game with the Audi e-tron crossover utility vehicle. Since then, Audi has introduced several new EV models, including the recent Audi Q4 e-tron, which has received its new pricing structure today starting at a reasonable $44,995 here in the United States.
The new 2022 Audi Q4 e-tron expands upon the EV lineup joining the likings of the current e-tron crossover and the performance-oriented e-tron GT.
Building off the love of crossovers here in America, Audi’s new Q4 40 e-tron base trim touts a powertrain shared with the beloved VW ID.4 with 201 horsepower and 229 pound-feet of torque from its rear-wheel-drive motor configuration and 77.0-kWh battery pack. But wait, there’s more – the 2022 Audi Q4 e-tron will also have an available all-wheel-drive configuration dubbed the Q4 50 e-tron with a bit more power, as much as 295 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque with a price starting at $50,995. The Q4 50 e-tron will also be offered in a sportback trim with the same 295 horsepower electric powertrain with a price starting at $53,795.
Range estimates start at 241 miles for the Q4 50 e-tron and may increase slightly for the less-powerful base Q4 40 e-tron when Audi finalizes their figures in the months to come. The 0 to 60 mph time in the Q4 50 e-tron is claimed to be 6.2 seconds, which is decent but falls just a hair short of the current gas-powered Audi Q5.
