audi is expanding its ev lineup to include the smaller and cheaper q4 e-tron, and we now have full u.s. details on this electric crossover. the 2022 q4 e-tron will start at $44,995, which is less than the gas-powered q5 crossover and only a few thousand dollars more than its downmarket sibling, the vw id.4.
the q4 shares its powertrain configurations with the volkswagen, as it comes standard in its 40 trim with a single rear-mounted electric motor that provides 201 horsepower and 229 pound-feet of torque. the more powerful q4 50 e-tron starts at $50,995 and adds all-wheel drive courtesy of an additional front electric motor that increases total power output to 295 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque. there's also a swoopier q4 e-tron sportback (pictured at top) available, and this comes only in the more powerful 50 configuration and starts at $53,795.
audi has only shared range estimates for the 50 models so far, which sits at 241 miles according to the epa. we anticipate the 40 model will achieve a slightly higher range number, as the id.4's awd configuration takes a slight range hit compared with its rwd counterpart. we look forward to testing the q4 e-tron's range for ourselves and seeing what it can do in the real world.
