Now that the press days from the 2019 Geneva Motor Show are over, the public is able to check out all of the cars on display. One of the more exciting and interesting cars to debut in Geneva was the Audi Q4 e-tron Concept. While it’s obviously not as thrilling as something like the Koenigsegg Jesko or the Aston Martin Vulcan, it’s exciting in a different way.
The Audi Q4 e-tron Concept represents a production car that will be launching this year and one that will bring affordable electromobility to Audi customers. The original Audi e-tron SUV is a great car but it’s very expensive. It will cost most people at least $80,000 out the door. However, the Audi Q4 e-tron should be significantly cheaper. That will make it much easier for traditional Audi customers to get into one.
It also looks great, which should attract all customers, not just EV fans. While it’s still a small, electric crossover, it looks more handsome than you’d might think such a car would be. Its wheel arches flair out, its rear haunches are muscular and aggressive and its roofline is tapered toward the back, all combining to make it look sharp and sporty. Despite being an electric people mover, the Audi Q4 e-tron will be a sporty little car.
The Concept looks better in person, too. In pictures, the grille looked a bit odd and too big. But in the flesh, it’s much more handsome. Those headlights and taillights are awesome as well. We really hope those make it to production because they’re awesome.
Inside the Audi Q4 e-tron, passengers will be greeted to a very calm, very serene cabin. It’s a good mix of the Audi Q3 and the e-tron SUV inside and we think it will be a very roomy and comfortable little car. Which is another reason why a lot of normal Audi customers, say Audi Q3 buyers, will jump ship. The Q4 e-tron’s lack of conventional powertrain, transmission, differentials and fluids means that it can be very spacious on the inside while being relatively small on the outside.
We can’t wait to see what the final production version looks like. But for now, check out these photos.
