Striking a perfect balance between the popular Audi Q5 and the smaller Audi Q3, the design of the 2022 Audi Q4 e-Tron SUV features ample interior space and storage, and merges performance with practicality. This all-electric luxury Sport Utility Vehicle is a stunningly beautiful car to look at as well!

The Q4 e-tron includes 250kWh of complimentary charging via Electrify America, a network of cross-country stations that allow you to recharge on long trips or in metro areas.

The EV shares a platform with the VW ID.4 and Skoda Enyaq iV, however the car’s superior quality, technology and quality place it at a higher level than the others. The Q4 e-tron is Audi’s fourth zero-emissions model to arrive, launching after the e-tron, e-tron Sportback and e-tron GT.
