We’ve already seen the Q4 e-Tron electric crossover in concept car form, but now spy photos have captured the car in testing.

As you’d expect, the production prototype of the car is covered in camouflage, but it seems to be completely in line with the styling of the concept car unveiled last year: the headlights, bumper and overall shape look very similar to the car we already wrote about. At the same time, despite the fact that it is built on the same platform as the Skoda Enyaq and VW iD.4, the interior of the Q4 in many ways resembles Audi and is largely borrowed from the larger “brother” e-Tron.

Recall that Audi announced the imminent debut of the new product, scheduled for the end of 2020. However, due to the coronavirus, this deadline could be postponed to 2021. By then, it will be the fifth all-electric Audi on sale, reflecting how quickly the electrification trend is gaining momentum.

It’s too early to talk about exact pricing, but CARmagazine estimates the electric SUV is likely to cost around £ 40,000. At the same time, the cost of batteries is gradually falling, which is accompanied by an increase in the number of electric vehicles with a large power reserve.

Mark Lichte, Audi’s head of design, previously said the Q4 would be “the first affordable battery-powered A-segment SUV,” and noted that accents in body color on the grille will be the hallmark of the future electric Audi.
