The Q4 e-tron scores less than maximum in two of the four efficiency tests, exceeding Green NCAP's lower threshold. Overall the energy efficiency index is still close to the best due to the generally low consumption of this battery electric car. The Q4's powertrain demonstrates high efficiency even when compared to other electric vehicles, despite the fact that it is quite a heavy vehicle. The tests show an efficient charging process with few losses: 88% of the energy withdrawn from the electrical grid is available at the battery output side.

Comments

The Greenhouse Gas Index is based on a Well-to-Wheel+ approach, meaning that the greenhouse gas emissions related to the supply of energy are added to the tailpipe emissions. Since the Q4 e-tron is a battery electric vehicle, its greenhouse gas emissions originate only from the upstream processes of electricity supply. Thanks to the low energy consumption of the vehicle and the relatively low CO2 emissions of European electricity production, the Audi scores very high in this part of the assessment.

Our verdict

The Audi Q4 Sportback 50 e-tron quattro is a full electric vehicle with an abundance of power – 220 kW. The tested model is the top-of-the-line version of the Q4 range, in which lighter models and rear wheel drive versions are available as well. Its large battery – a declared capacity of 76.6 kWh – helps to overcome range anxiety in most driving situations. Normal real-world driving consumption with low cabin climatization demand results in a range of some 420 km. Under cold winter conditions, starting with a fully charged battery, the driving range declines to 270 km; on the motorway at 23°C ambient temperature around 290 km can be expected. The vehicle demonstrates high powertrain and climatization management efficiency together with an efficient charging process resulting in the full set of 5 Green NCAP stars.
