German automotive manufacturer Audi unveiled its new Q4 e-tron concept – a forerunner to its upcoming all-electric production-model SUV, due in 2020 – in a world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland. The event opens to the public 7-17 March, 2019.

The two electric motors in this compact SUV concept provide 225kW of power. Matched with Audi's quattro all-wheel drive system, they deliver acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.3 seconds, with a top speed capped at 180km/h. The manufacturer also promises a range of over 450km.

The technology onboard the Q4 e-tron concept controls the modular electrification platform (MEB), which will be integrated into several future electric vehicles produced across the Volkswagen Group, from compact class to superior medium-size class models.

A production model Q4 e-tron is slated for launch towards the end of 2020, around the same time as the eagerly awaited Tesla Model Y.
