The software update, dubbed version 3.2, is set to impact all Q4 e-trons since the start of production and will also optimise the cars' DC charging power.

Audi is hoping that its latest software update for the Q4 e-tron and Q4 e-tron Sportback will help advance the cars, and provide even more utility and convenience to their drivers as the model range matures.

A key feature of this latest update, dubbed 'version 3.2' by Audi, is that it will grant the cars the ability to perform future updates via an over-the-air interface moving forward. Currently, owners have to bring their cars into dealer workshops for manual installations. 

Q4 e-trons and Q4 e-tron Sportbacks will have version 3.2 as standard from the 2023 model year onwards
The update also brings with it improved charging power for drivers regardless of whether they're on the road or done for the day and plugging in at home.

A 'Preferred charging time' function allows users to carve out a defined charging window so that charging occurs at low-cost times. This feature is handy in certain parts of Europe, where electricity plans have variable rates, and charging at night, for instance, is less expensive. As for charging on the go, the Q4 e-tron range now also supports DC charging at up to 135kW.

Audi says that the update also brings with it a reworked thermal management system that will optimise power consumption by better conditioning the battery. Speaking of the battery, a new protective function can also hold it an ideal state of charge by limiting it to 80%.

The Q4 e-tron has yet to receive a Singapore launch, but with version 3.2 set to come as standard in series production for the 2023 model year, it's quite likely that the model range will already carry the capabilities mentioned above when it does arrive on our shores.
