Audi Q4 E-Tron Sportback spotted again in tests

October 9, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

After its first appearance in September this year, the Audi Q4 E-Tron Sportback returns in a new series of spy photos. This time the spies caught another prototype on ordinary steel wheels.

One possible explanation for this is that Audi is testing a car with a set of winter tires to provide the necessary assessment of the all-electric crossover for its cold-weather behavior. Otherwise, this prototype looks almost the same as the previous test model. The Audi Q4 E-Tron Sportback is covered in camouflage film, but underneath it is definitely the production body with the sloping roofline, as well as the production headlights and taillights.

It’s worth noting that the prototype is very similar to the Audi Q4 E-Tron Sportback concept, which was unveiled in July this year. Obviously, some of the more radical designs will be replaced by less complex elements, including an overly aggressive front bumper. However, the production car will remain true to the overall styling of the concept.

The Audi Q4 E-Tron and Q4 E-Tron will be very different from the Volkswagen ID.4 in terms of looks. The mainstream electric crossover made its official debut a few weeks ago, and its more expensive siblings will be easy to distinguish from Audi models even at first glance.

The Q4 E-Tron Sportback, sized between the Q3 and Q5, will initially be offered as an electric vehicle with one electric motor driving the rear wheels. By comparison, the concept had an 82 kilowatt-hour battery and two electric motors, giving the crossover 201 horsepower – and a similar layout is expected to arrive later in the lineup.
