2024 Audi Q4 55 e-tron: Enhanced Efficiency and Range

The 2024 Audi Q4 55 e-tron, featuring a new rear drive unit, showcases significant efficiency improvements over its predecessor.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the latest model boasts a range of 258 miles for both the SUV and Sportback versions, compared to the previous ranges of 236 and 242 miles, respectively. Despite these improvements, the battery pack capacity remains unchanged at 82 kilowatt-hours. Currently, the market only offers an all-wheel-drive version of the Audi Q4 e-tron. The 2023 model included a rear-wheel-drive option with up to 265 miles of range. Should Audi release a new rear-wheel-drive version, it is expected to achieve a higher range, similar to the Volkswagen ID.4’s 291 miles EPA, thanks to the new 210-kilowatt rear drive unit.

Improved Range and Efficiency

  • Audi Q4 55 e-tron AWD: 258 miles (an increase of 22 miles or 9.3%)
  • Audi Q4 Sportback 55 e-tron AWD: 258 miles (an increase of 16 miles or 6.6%)

Interestingly, both the Audi Q4 55 e-tron AWD with 19-inch wheels and the Sportback version with 20-inch wheels share the same 258-mile range. Normally, the Sportback benefits from better aerodynamics, but the larger wheels counterbalance this advantage. The energy consumption for both versions is estimated at 100 MPGe, equivalent to approximately 337 watt-hours per mile (3.0 miles/kWh).

In comparison, the Volkswagen ID.4 is rated at 102 MPGe, with an energy consumption of 330 watt-hours per mile or 3.0 miles/kWh. However, the ID.4 comes standard with 20-inch wheels. Notably, the highway MPGe ratings for the Q4 e-tron are lower than the combined values, with an estimated EPA highway range roughly 20 miles (or 8%) less. It’s important to note that MPGe ratings include charging losses, so a simple proportion calculation is not accurate.

Pricing and Incentives

The starting price for the 2024 Audi Q4 e-tron is $55,200, plus a $1,195 destination charge. As the model is imported from Europe, it does not qualify for the $7,500 federal tax credit for electric vehicles. However, this incentive might be applicable for leasing options.

Additionally, the ID.4 benefits from the $7,500 tax credit, making it a more economical choice for buyers. Despite this, the Audi Q4 e-tron stands out as a more premium offering with distinct differences in standard equipment across various trims that need to be evaluated individually.

The 2024 Audi Q4 55 e-tron, with its enhanced range and efficiency, presents a compelling option for those seeking a luxury electric vehicle. The improvements in the drive unit and the refined design make it a noteworthy contender in the EV market.
