Audi is giving a much-deserved upgrade to one of its best cars, which is the Q4 e-tron electric crossover. This upgrade consists of a new back electric motor, which increases the horsepower and also is more energy efficient.
This upgrade is coming to the 2025 Q6 e-tron, and this has been done in order to make the Electric Vehicles more diverse with plenty of features as well as many other upgrades.
Q4 e-tron crossover has been around since 2022, and the Europeans are the ones who will first get the 2025 model of this car. Later onwards, the U.S. will get this on its shores with changes that will be coming to the standard Q4 SUV and the beautiful Sportback models.
The design of Q4 will remain the same for the most part on the outside, which is already a phenomenal piece of art. Many people will probably think that a redesign was necessary, but when looking at the design, again and again, a redesign wasn’t really needed here.
But Audi did make some changes to the back axle, which is now fitted with a synchronous motor that gives the Q4 more range as well as power; that is a really good thing because who can say no to more power in a car? This also compensates for those people who didn’t like the fact that Q4 didn’t get a redesign.
The New Motor Will Give Q4 A Sizable Power Boost
On top of the newer technology that increased the range, there is also the new motor that can generate a total of 282 horsepower; that is a very big increase without a shadow of a doubt, as the previous motor could only produce a total of 201 horsepower.
Furthermore, the company claims that with this, it can sprint to 62mph in just 6.7-second, which is currently 60mph in 7.9 seconds.
The all-wheel-drive models have their speed increased from 99 mph to 112 mph. The mileage that the models provide is 265 miles, according to EPA, and the mileage for this newer model might be close to 300 miles or slightly more than 300 miles.
This figure is currently unknown and will be revealed by the EPA. The all-wheel-drive Q4 50 e-tron now can generate a total of 335 horsepower, which previously was 295 horsepower.
On top of this, it can go from 0-62 in just 5.4 seconds, and the current range that it provides is 236 miles or 242 miles for the Sportback, and the range will increase even more in the upcoming 2025.
The battery that is placed in this car will be the same 77.0-kWh battery, which has gotten revised cell chemistry that has shortened the charging times from 10 to 80 percent charge in just 28 minutes. The company says that Audi all-wheel-drive Q4 e-trons will now max out at 175 kW when charged with a DC fast charger instead of the 150 kW before.
The Battery In The Newer Model Will Have a number of Features
In Europe, rear-wheel-drive models will be limited to 135 kW, whereas in the U.S., all models will be capable of 150 kW. Furthermore, Audi will has implemented a function that will limit the charge level to 80 percent to extend the battery’s lifespan.
There will also be a post-conditioning feature that will cool the battery, and it exceeds a certain temperature.
There are numerous other features that are added to improve the driving experience even more, which are welcomed changes. The price and release date haven’t really been revealed, but the price will definitely be getting an increase.
