For the 2024 model year, the Audi Q4 and Q4 Sportback e-tron models have been updated. The changes bring with them enhancements to the selection, quicker payment times, as well as adjustments to the suspension and products offered in specific areas. According to Audi, the current design will begin to be sold in international markets later this month.

Only larger 77 kWh battery packs for electric SUVs with design years 2024 will be available.

Starting with the under-the-skin changes, Audi has completely eliminated the option of the smaller 51.5 kWh battery pack. The Q4 variation for 2024 will only be offered with the larger 77 kWh battery pack. The original 35 e-tron variations have been discontinued, but a new 45 and 55 e-tron have replaced the 40 e-tron and 50 e-tron varieties. Additionally, Audi claims that it has improved the cell chemistry for the 2024 product, enabling quicker charge times. Rear-wheel drive models (45 e-tron) can now support 135 kW DC quick charging, up from 125 kW, while quattro models can support up to 175 kW.

The automaker claims that a new forever delighted synchronous electrical motor on the rear axle will also benefit the 2024 Q4 e-tron variants. According to Audi, the new unit increases performance while simultaneously increasing efficiency. The 210 kW (282 bhp) of power that the new 45 e-tron variations now have is an increase from the e-tron 40’s 150 kW (201 bhp). The 45 e-tron quattro produces the same amount of energy. Audi claims that the rear-wheel drive model will accelerate to 100 kmph in 6.7 seconds, while the quattro versions achieve the same speed in 6.6 seconds.

A new electric motor on the back axle improves performance across all variations and widens range.

In the interim, the 50 e-tron variants’ 220 kW (295 bhp) power output has increased to 250 kW (335 bhp) in the 55 quattro variants. For the 55 quattro variations, Audi claims a time of 5.4 seconds from zero to one hundred kilometres per hour. Regarding the range, Audi claims that the Q4 can travel up to 562 km on a single charge, an increase from the claimed 534 km of the 2023 design.

Moving on to the other models, the Q4 e-tron gets modifications to the steering and suspension for improved agility. The suspension “improves the balance for even greater convenience, driving enjoyment, and security,” according to Audi.

The electronic instrument panel and navigation of the Audi Virtual Cockpit are now standard on the Q4 lineup.

In terms of technology, the Q4 will now come standard with a 10.25-inch Digital Cockpit display, as well as amenities like MMI navigation plus and Audi join Navigation 8. Both heated front seats and a motorised tailboard are now considered standard. All Q4 models now, according to Audi, get an outstanding auditory signal that alerts other highway users to the presence of the car at very low speeds.

The potential for an assisted lane performance improvement is another new feature of the Q4 range. The new feature, which is a part of Audi’s optional support packages, gives drivers visual indicators in the instrument panel or head-up display indicating the lane and the car are clear. When the turn signal is activated, the procedure activates and displays the lane alongside the vehicle.

In international markets, the Q4 and Q4 Sportback e-tron compete with goods like the Mercedes EQA and the BMW iX1.
