    .............................................................

    This is the all-new Audi Q4 e-tron! It’s an all-new, all-electric SUV meant to compete with the likes of the Volkswagen ID.4 & Skoda Enyaq, and Mat’s here to see if it has what it takes to become an EV SUV class-leader!

    When it comes to the style stakes, there’s no denying that this new Q4 can compete with the best of them. It’s available in this guise or as a Sportback, and the exterior comes covered in cool creases and well designed bumpers. It’s also super stylish on the inside too.

    As for performance, there are three options to get your hands on - the 30, 40 or 50. We’ve got our hands on the S-Line 40 for this review, but the range topper is the 50, which comes equipped with dual motors and the ability to produce 300hp. It’s also packing an 82kWh battery pack, which is good for a claimed range of 298 miles.

    There’s one issue though (for us UK viewers, at least)… The price starts at just over £40,000, which means those of us in the UK miss out on the Government’s UK EV grant - a saving of £2,500! With that in mind, should you choose the Q4 e-tron, or go for something cheaper instead? It’s time to find out!

Its either the model 3 or the Ioniq 5. That Audi Q4 felt 10 years old after trying the Ioniq 5 (I testet them back-to-back)

Mat, I'm looking for the best performance family hauler which is NOT an SUV. I suppose I have no option yet for a performance estate? Tesla Y is the winner for space inside from the CUV / SUV e-possibilities I suppose? That's cool about the Q-e-4 changing lighting designs.

Fusebox is just crazy. Try checking out a Tesla. They are so much more advanced on so many levels. At the moment. The big grill in the front is so that their next version will be a real EV attempt. This is just foolish. Wait with buying an EV from VW group until they are more serious with their EV’s. They will make great EV’s later when they do not depend on ICE cars profits. Charging speed 😂

1) This fake grill looks like a fake horse in front of a car in 1910s. 2) The car looks like a five seater minivan. Like C4 Picasso. But if they just call it a minivan no one would buy it. 3) Froot is one of the best things about EVs. How could so many manufacturers just not put it in there?

FYI, IONIQ 5 vs TESLA MODEL Y... : Tesla great job, max speed, range especially leveraging its shape and weight. Still prefer, being in Europe, comfort. 99% of my trips are within 200kms one way. With the Hyundai IONIQ 5, I do look forward to ventilated seats, Android Auto, the roomy and comfortable interior, and HUD. Also like reclining seats with foot rest and reclining console for arms rest, all electronic aids especially against collisions, automated parking (Executive version), blind spot cams on dashboard when turning, V2L, sun shades integrated in back doors, electric sunroof shade, wide space available inside with good visibility through the back window etc. Also 5 year car warranty illimited kms (Max 80 000 for Tesla... Reliability issues?), and 8 year battery warranty (same as Tesla). Comment by Park Shawn translating from Korean to English this video : https://youtu.be/rWBAJu_S4lk Ionic 5 LR and Model Y LR both have similar spec including weight, battery sizes. Details can be found on google. Here are some highlights from the conclusion they brought up at the end of the video. 1. Both car's AVG speed were about 100KM/h (Highway drive) 2. Both car's A/C and other convenience functions(like Highway drive assistance for Ionic 5, Auto Pilot for Model Y and etc.) were always on during the test. 3. 4 drivers drove about 100km per person and checked the remaining battery at designated location. 4. Both car have shown slightly poor battery performance than usual because of the weather condition (rain) 5. By just looking at the specification, Model Y can drive 141km more than Ionic 5. However the actual drive test have shown that the difference were only about 60~70km. This experiment have shown that IONIC 5's driving range is little longer than what Hyundai advertised. 6. They have concluded that both Ionic 5 and Model Y can drive from Seoul to Busan. The distance between those two cities are about 350km. Hope this helps.

Not having a FRUNK will turn millions of potential customers off to VW branded electric SUVs. I would rather get an electric Ford truck. They have a huge frunk. Very poor thought out engineering that will cost VW millions if not billions of lost dollars.

Disappointed. Sport back looks better. I won’t be in a rush to change my Q3 sport back for this. Interior is drab. I’ve noticed that Audi interior quality isn’t what it used to be. I had a previous generation A3 and an A5 before moving to a q3 last year and the A3 and A5 had a much more solid interior.

Cameraman Lewis is right, it's such an ugly interior. I've recently test-driven a Q4 and felt like a step back in time. The dashboard really comes towards you, the gear panel is ugly, there are way too many sharp curves in the dashboard and it has an ugly user interface. Pity, because the car is spacious and looks quite nice from the outside.

Well, you did ask, it looks like all the other EV’s, same basic shape, simular performance,different prices,and most aren’t available to many families because they’re too expensive!, now, I know the Cars perform really well, range anxiety is on the wain,and at the moment cheaper to run,but, once Ev’s become more prevalent than ICE Cars, the Government will have to place all that lost Road Tax, so, guess who will be in the firing line?
