Audi Teases Q4 e-tron Concept Ahead Of Geneva Debut

FEB 14 2019 BY MARK KANE 27

Q4 e-tron Concept will be Audi’s answer to the Tesla Model Y?

Audi announced the presentation of a new all-electric compact SUV study – the Audi Q4 e-tron concept – which will be unveiled at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.

It’s based on the Volkswagen MEB platform and – as hinted earlier – the production version is coming within two years in late 2020 or early 2021.

The design sketched remind us of the Audi e-tron a little bit, but it has its own unique style.

Taking into consideration the size and timeframe, as well as use of MEB platform, the Audi Q4 e-tron will probably be a very close competitor to the upcoming Tesla Model Y.

“First design sketches of next all-electric model to bear the e-tron badge released ahead of world debut on March 5Audi is showcasing its compact SUV study with electric drive at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The Audi Q4 e-tron concept provides a glimpse of the next stage of Audi electric mobility and is due to be presented as a volume-production vehicle in late 2020/early 2021.”

You can tease all you want. The matter of fact is that it’s way overpriced!

Could you use your apparent time travel skills for good?

The real vehicle will NOT look much like these concept drawings.

Indeed. It will look more like the VW ID Crozz it is based on.

Please stop it. Stop with these Tesla killers

You do know it is the people writing the articles who set everything BEV as a zero sum game, yes?

Where does it say it may or may not be a Tesla killer?

The article mentions competitor, which it will be if it’s a premium mid sized CUV, but that’s not remotely similar to a killer, any more than the Golf is a Ford Focus killer.

But it’s not a competitor it’s an alliance to end all ice sales

Audi is not allied with Tesla or any other car company outside of VAG. They’re companies wanting to make a profit, not a group of evangelists.

Nobody but you called it Tesla Killer…

Also, isn’t it great, that there will be more EVs out? And since there are a dozen makes successfully selling petrol cars now, I just guess there will be room for more than one EV maker.

I am looking forward to seeing what Audi guys can do with MEB. It would be interesting. 🙂

It’s a Q4 with Etron. It production ready in 2020

I hope they will not produce a car that is looking like this…

Relax. The real thing will not like this “Hotwheels thing” at all.

I like the overly dramatic, cartoonish look of many design drawings.
Too bad they can not make a car that looks just like the drawings.
I like the overall lines of the car. I prefer these headlights over the new e-tron.

It will look more like the VW ID Crozz which it is based on.

” Q4 e-tron Concept will be Audi’s answer to the Tesla Model Y? ”

Tesla Model Y is not a question, so it doesn’t need to be answered 🙂

Instead, how about an affordable, available EV, sometime perhaps a year ago, dear Audi?

Audi never made affordable cars… or at least for a long time.

buy a 2-3 year old Audi like a lease return.

If you want cheap, buy a Korean car.

“Model Y will be Tesla’s answer to the Audi Q4 e-tron?”
It seems that Audi will show the Q4 e-tron concept before Tesla Model Y.

That “answer to”, “killer of”, … thing, should end. Compact SUVs are trend now, so Tesla, Audi and others will be fulfilling the market for those cars that is not getting any smaller.

There’s suppose to be an A4 e Tron as well

If this is suppose to rival Tesla Model Y then does that guarantee the VW Crozz will undercut the two at under $40K? Rumors say Model Y will start at $40K (of course a few years after production begins but still)

Is this coming to the US?

The VW version of this Audi is ID Crozz, that one for sure will be sold in US.

Still with (what I think is ugly) tin grin.
