2020 Audi Sportback Interior
The name is longer, but the new Q4 Sportback is the aboriginal affiliate yet of Audi’s growing E-Tron bandage of electric cars and SUVs.
Audi’s E-Tron bandage of electric cars and SUVs grows by one with the acknowledge of its Q4 E-Tron Sportback on Tuesday. Based on the Q4 E-Tron SUV that debuted at the 2019 Geneva Motor Actualization — conceivably the aftermost Geneva actualization ever? — the Sportback archetypal differentiates itself with a austere A7-style roofline and rear end. This is basically the aforementioned blueprint that Audi followed with the beyond E-Tron SUV and its Sportback variant.
The Q4 E-Tron Sportback’s advanced end leads with the automaker’s single-frame grille, which is abundantly bankrupt off due to the EV not absolutely defective a ample air intake. Audi says it’s befitting the grille’s actualization and actualization to advance its signature beheld appearance and to accord the EV a adventurous aesthetic.
To either ancillary of the not-a-grille are Audi’s new Digital Signature lights, a customizable cast of LEDs that acquiesce the user to change the SUV’s daytime alive ablaze signature at the blow of a button. Audi says these lights — which are altered from its HD Cast LED headlamps — will be present on the assembly vehicle, but the aggregation is still “talking to the authorities” apropos whether the tech will be alive on US-bound models.
Of course, the Sportback rear end is the defining affection of this Q4. Audi tells us that it capital to accent the amoebic curves of this variant, in adverse to its commonly acutely geometric design, with the able-bodied amateur and flanks. The Sportback’s “coupelike, A7-esque” roofline costs the Q4 a bit of headroom, but the Sportback should accomplish up for it with an aerodynamic boost.
The truncated roof punches a abate aperture in the atmosphere at speed, which should advance ambit and efficiency. Out back, a ample rear diffuser visually raises the Q4’s rear end and, forth with a wind tunnel-designed spoiler, helps abate drag. Audi tells us that the Sportback boasts a 0.26 annoyance coefficient, which is lower (and better) than SUV’s 0.28 Cd.
The abstraction is, according to Audi, basically adumbrative of what the final Q4 E-Tron Sportback’s architecture will attending like. Aloof brainstorm a set of aperture handles, maybe a baby bluff fin antenna and we’re mostly there.

Beneath the architecture is Audi’s (and Volkswagen’s) MEB electric platform, which should accomplish the Q4 Sportback a adequately ample agent aural its 181-inch all-embracing length. Amid the 109.1-inch wheelbase, the low-mounted electric motors and array and the abridgement of a driveshaft or manual intrusions, Audi claims that the A-segment Q4 Sportback will avowal autogenous aggregate “two agent segments above,” agnate to that of a C-segment SUV, like the Q5, alike with its hardly lower roof.
Speaking of electric motors, the Sportback will avowal two of them — one per arbor — for a accumulated all-wheel-driven absolute of about 300 application and 228 pound-feet of torque. The EV SUV should be able to dart from 0 to 62 mph in a reasonable 6.3 abnormal afore topping out at an electronically bound 112 mph.
With its 82-kilowatt-hour array pack, Audi’s ciphering the Sportback will aeon for about 280 afar amid accuse — on the European WLTP analysis cycle, anyway, which is usually a bit added acceptable than the US EPA testing regimen. Audi reckons the added glace aero will accord the Sportback an bend over the accepted SUV back the numbers are assuredly nailed down.
An LED ablaze bandage joins the taillamps and unifies the rear-end design.
Audi additionally says it will activity a rear-wheel-drive Q4 E-Tron Sportback alternative with aloof one electric motor, a abate array and potentially a lower cost. In this lighter configuration, the automaker expects that ambit will extend to over 500 kilometers, or 310 miles, on WLTP. However, it’s cryptic if such a archetypal would be accessible in the US or if Audi will stick with its activity of alone importing the college trim akin like it has with the beyond E-Tron SUV.
Inside, the Q4 Sportback will affection the abutting bearing of Audi’s Digital Cockpit dashboard tech and a massive, cutting-edge aggrandized absoluteness head-up affectation that is so new at this point that the company’s spokespeople accepted they haven’t absolutely apparent the tech in activity with their own eyes. Our absorption is absolutely piqued.
The Audi Q4 E-Tron Sportback is accepted to hit the alley in assembly guise alongside the Q4 SUV in 2021. Pricing is still actuality determined, but the automaker says it’s targeting “below 40,000 euro” for European models, which converts to about $45,000 in the US. This will be addition footfall against Audi’s ambition of alms 30 electrified models by 2025 — 20 of which will be BEVs like the Q4 E-Tron Sportback and the accessible E-Tron GT action sedan. By 2025, the automaker hopes that electric and electrified cartage will accomplish up 40% of all of its sales.
