Audi has unveiled the Q4 E-Tron, the latest model in its electric car range.
It will be available in two bodystyles - the regular SUV Q4, and the SUV-coupe Q4 Sportback.
There's a choice of two battery sizes - 52kWh and 77kWh - and three electric motor set-ups, with 170hp and 204hp models having a single motor and rear-wheel drive, and a 299hp version featuring two motors and four-wheel drive.
The 170hp model comes with the smaller battery, and the more powerful set-ups come with the larger battery. The greatest range capability is offered by the larger battery with the 204hp motor, capable of covering up to 316 miles on a single charge on the WLTP cycle (208 miles is possible with the smaller battery).
The larger battery is capable of charging at 125kW, allowing a 5-80% charge in 38 minutes, while the smaller battery can charge at up to 100kW.
Remote charging activation is possible using the MyAudi smartphone app, which also allows cabin preconditioning.
The model is 4.59m long, and has a boot capacity of 520 litres with the regular Q4, and 535 litres with the Q4 Sportback.
The Q4 E-Tron is available to order now, with the first UK deliveries scheduled in June.
At launch there's a choice of four equipment grades - Sport, S Line, Edition 1, and Vorsprung. Standard equipment throughout the range includes LED headlights, an infotainment touchscreen, and Audi's Virtual Cockpit display, with a larger 11.6in touchscreen set to become available later this year. Higher spec models come with an augmented reality head-up display and a new steering wheel with touch-controls.
Prices start at £40,750 for a 170hp Sport, and rise as high as £65,070 for a 299hp Vorsprung.
Prices for the Q4 E-Tron Sportback are yet to be announced, with orders opening in June, and the first deliveries set for September.
