Compare the Volkswagen ID4 and Audi Q4 etron in Santa Maria


See Why the New VW ID.4 Is a Better Value for Santa Maria Drivers Than the Audi Q4 e-tron

Electric SUVs are all the rage in Santa Maria, CA because they're fun to drive and they don't harm the environment. The new Volkswagen ID.4 is a spacious electric crossover with a striking exterior and a long driving range. The new Audi Q4 e-tron is also an attractive SUV, but it doesn't offer as much for the money as the VW ID.4. Read the following comparison from Community Volkswagen of Santa Maria to see why.

Performance & Range of Electric SUVs


You need plenty of get-up-and-go for passing other vehicles on Highway 101 in Santa Maria. The VW ID.4 comes standard with an 82-kWh battery and a single electric motor that combine to produce 201 horsepower. This powertrain enables it to zip from 0 to 60 mph in 7.7 seconds.


The Audi Q4 e-tron also comes with a 201-horsepower electric powertrain, but it's heavier than the ID.4. The e-tron takes 7.9 seconds to reach 60 mph from a standstill.
