Audi Ireland has set up a pre-registration service for potential buyers of the new Q4 e-tron electric SUV, to provide priority access for the first batch of cars when they come to Ireland later this year, writes Brian Byrne.

A €950 refundable deposit is taken at the pre-registration, which will be deducted from the overall price of the car at sale confirmation. The Q4 e-tron will have a starting price of €41,465 including deduction of grants.

The car will offer ranges from 335km-5112km depending on variant chosen. Powertrain choices offer outputs of 170hp-300hp. Two styles will be available, including a Sportback.

Preregistration is available at The Q4 e-tron follows the original e-tron, the e-tron Sportback, and the e-tron GT that has recently gone on sale in Ireland.
