Audi has uncovered what will end up being the fifth electric vehicle in a 12- in number EV line- up by 2025- the Q4 e- tron idea. It's another electric SUV, and when the creation form of the new idea vehicle rises toward the finish of 2020, it'll be the fourth electric hybrid in Audi's crease, joining the full size e- tron and e- tron Sportback, and an electric variation of the Q2 smaller hybrid sold in China as it were.
Before it rises, the spreads will be completely lifted off Audi's Porsche Taycan identical as well, as the creation adaptation of the e- tron GT. The Q4 e- tron idea is the first Audi to utilize the VW's gathering's Modularer Elektrobaukasten stage, better known by the abbreviation MEB. It's likewise the first occasion when we've seen a top notch vehicle supported by the mass-showcase electric design, as so far all other MEB ideas have been discharged under the gathering's three volume brands: Volkswagen, SEAT and Skoda.
Under the skin of the Q4 e- tron idea, the MEB stage houses a battery pack 82 kWh in size. It sits under the traveler compartment of the vehicle and between the axles, weighing 510 kg. It sends its charge to two electric engines – one driving the front hub, the other the back. Absolute framework yield is evaluated at 302 bhp and 460 Nm torque, while Audi claims a 0- 62mph time of 6.3 seconds and an electronically constrained best speed of 112 mph. In typical driving the Q4 e- tron quattro utilizes the back hub just with the end goal of effectiveness, with the front pivot just brought into play under hard quickening or low footing.
With the 82 kWh battery ready – the biggest battery good with the MEB framework at present – Audi claims a greatest scope of 'more than' 280 miles on a solitary charge, recorded under the new WLTP standard. The battery can be energized at 125 kW, empowering an 80 per cent best up in 30 minutes when associated with a charger equipped for that yield. The Q4 e- tron idea possesses indistinguishable portion from the Q3, yet it's somewhat bigger than Audi's enormous selling traditional hybrid at 4,590 mm long, 1,900 mm wide and 1,610 mm tall. The general shape is genuinely ordinary, with the backside of the idea only somewhat more daring than the current Q3.
Structure astute the idea is a genuinely close review of the last thing. It fields unmistakable shoulders over the front and back axles, thin headlights roosted high in each side of the vehicle's front end and colossal 22- inch wheels. Contacts from the bigger e- tron SUV are found on the Q4 e- tron's outside, including the structure of the front grille and the wide, full-width LED taillight coming to over the idea's back end. Inside, the dashboard format is by all accounts propelled by the e- tron GT idea, utilizing a hexagonal guiding haggle close indistinguishable focus reassure, with a 12.3- inch touchscreen infotainment framework calculated somewhat towards the driver and a virtual cockpit show behind the controlling wheel. The inside is somewhat unique in fit and size, given the way that the Q4 e- tron idea utilizes an alternate stage to the e- tron GT.
The idea is a four- seater – five seats will show up when it goes into creation late one year from now. When it touches base discounted, it'll be one of a few conservative premium SUVs hitting the market, nearby the up and coming Tesla Model Y and BMW iX3.
