Prepare to see more electric-powered Audis in the not so distant future, as the Ingolstadt-based automake announced that they will be revealing an all-new eletric concept at this year's Geneva International Motor Show.
Called the Q4 e-tron concept, the new crossover will serve as a smaller alternative to the bigger e-tron SUV that was revealed last September 2018.
Looking at the design sketches provided, the Q4 e-tron has a muscular and coupe-like design. It gets prominent wheel arches, along with overly-sized alloy wheels wrapped in low-profile tires. While these are not likely to make it into production, it does give us a glimpse of what the actually thing will look like come March.
Also present on the Q4 e-tron are what appear to be huge air intakes on the front bumper, along with a massive Singleframe front grill and LED headlights. Given that the Q4 e-tron runs on pure electricity, perhaps the big air intakes were put there to help cool the brakes or the electric powertrain itself.
Besides catching a glimpse of the Q4 e-tron's sleek looks, Audi also released a teaser photo of the concept's cabin. Much like the e-tron that was revealed a few months ago, the Q4 e-tron features a driver-centric cockpit complete with a digital instrument panel, as well as what appears to be a touchscreen infotainment system. There are also acres of beige that cover the seats and steering wheel while bright blue trim pieces adorn the dashboard and door panels; providing a stark contrast against the pre-dominantly beige-colored interior.
While the Q4 e-tron is still in concept form, Audi has already confirmed that it is due to be released as a production vehicle some time in late 2020 or in early 2021. This could only mean that Audi is stepping up on the growing electric luxury vehicle segment which is also populated by BMW, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz and Tesla.
Audi will officially reveal the Q4 e-tron concept in the metal at the opening day of the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show on March 5.
