Audi has unveiled its compact all-electric SUV, the Q4 e-tron Concept, Tuesday at the Geneva Motor Show.

Featuring 225 kW of power through two electric motors, the all-wheel drive Q4 e-tron will be built on Volkswagen’s MEB platform and is expected to be the German manufacturer’s entry-level EV when it launches in late 2020.

Up to 280 miles of range is targeted with the 82 kWh battery, while DC fast-charging should take around 30 minutes for an 80 percent charge.

The battery system weights in at 510kg, allowing for an almost “perfectly balanced” 50:50 weight distribution, with power distributed through 150 kW to the rear axle via a permanently excited synchronous motor, and 75 kW to the front.

The new model will be the fifth battery-electric vehicle in Audi’s lineup, joining the e-tron, e-tron Sportback, Q2L e-tron and e-tron GT, which is being developed by Audi Sport GmbH.

Audi has pledged to roll out with 12 all-electric vehicles by 2025 as part of the German manufacturer’s significant investment into e-mobility.
