2023 Audi A4 Interior, Model & Redesign
2023 Audi A4 Interior, Model & Redesign– Audi will introduce the A4-sized electric sedan in 2023 as part of its ever-expanding range of E-Tron models.
The brand launched its flagship E-Tron SUV last year, with a version of its sibling car, the E-Tron Sportback, which will go on sale later this year. At the recent Geneva show, Audi revealed the SUV concept Q4 E-Tron, due for release in late 2020 under the guise of co-production with the four-door sports car E-Tron GT.
Audi design boss Marc Lichte said the brand will also develop a sedan that will be offered at a price similar to the Q4 E-Tron. “There will be [electric] SUVs and sports cars downstairs like the E-Tron GT, which is our ‘hello’ car,” he told Autocar in Geneva. “There will be an E-Tron GT in the [A4 size] segment too. We are working on this right now. “
Lichte said the electric sedan will be built on the APD architecture, a shared electric platform with Porsche, which is also used on the A6-sized E-Tron GT.
Audi is showing its seriousness and is currently working on a number of platforms for electric car design. The E-Tron and E-Tron Sportback are based on the Audi-adapted MLB platform, while the Q4 E-Tron uses the Volkswagen Group’s bespoke electric MEB platform.
Audi CEO Bram Schot said the Q4 E-Tron will be a “major volume player” for the brand and will match Q3 sales “sooner than you think”.
Audi A4 2023 May Look This Good, Will Have EV Version
The Audi A4 is one of the most popular premium cars in the world, from China to North America. The facelift for the B9 generation was introduced last year, which means Audi may want to build an all-new model.
Based on reports from two years ago, Volkswagen wants to build the new A4 on the MQB platform, which it uses for everything from the little Golf to the Atlas. That will definitely affect how they are handled or what version of performance they offer, although that’s not always a bad thing when it comes to sales.
On the one hand, A4 is already connected to the MQB. Unless we’re wrong, the European TDI 2.0 was co-developed with the one on the Golf, while the infotainment screen is now the MIB3. But the new port from late 2019 says the next A4 has been approved with the current MLB at its core.
The main difference is in how the machines are directed. All MQB cars have cylinders lined from East to West, while MLB models like the A6 or Q7 have them from North-to-South. However, for some reason, Audi is sending power to the front wheels (for the most part), while almost all other manufacturers want to move it to the rear in that situation.
But as we said at the start, the A4 is a very solid performance, so they probably don’t have to rock the boat. Not only the platform but also some styles have been locked for this all-new model. We’ve heard the front look of the car was decided last year, and today we’re sharing the first rendering, which is by Tobias Buttner.
Obviously, A4 is very similar to its younger brother, A3. But it’s one of Audi’s newest models, so we’ll have to treat it to what’s to come.
As far as model variation was concerned, we expected less. Audi will reduce the number of models in demand by about half. We suspect this means the A5 Sportback will be turned off while the A5 Coupe and Cabriolet will be members of the A4 family again. In addition, electric models will be added, as will almost all popular cars in China. Just look at the electric BMW 3 Series, for example.
