Audi Q4 e-tron boot space & seating

With boot capacity on par with an Audi Q5, the Q4 e-tron offers plenty of space for families and features an airy, open cabin – one of the benefits of sitting on a dedicated electric-car platform

The Audi Q4 e-tron is another example of the inherent practicality benefits of using a dedicated electric-car platform like the Volkswagen Group's MEB setup (which also underpins the Volkswagen ID.4 and Skoda Enyaq iV) rather than adapting a combustion-engined model to zero-emissions power. 

Audi Q4 e-tron interior space, storage & comfort

There’s plenty of space in the Q4 e-tron, with the cabin having been designed to feel as airy and spacious as possible. There's a lot of storage space as well, including under the 'floating' panel that houses the gear selector up front, as well as carved-out sections in the rear door liners. 

Boot space

The Q4 e-tron has 520 litres of boot space and a maximum load capacity of 1,490 litres with the rear seats folded down. Sport and S Line models get a 40:60 split-folding rear bench, while Edition 1 and Vorsprung cars get more versatile 40:20:40 split-folding rear seats instead. 

Regardless, that’s slightly more boot space than on offer in the BMW iX3 and far more than you get in a Volvo XC40 Recharge P8. However, the ID.4 and Enyaq iV (which, as noted above, have the same underpinnings as the Q4 e-tron) boast larger boot capacities with their rear seats in place or lowered down. It’s also worth noting that the Q4 e-tron forgoes a ‘frunk’ storage area under its bonnet.
