Audi Q4 e-tron
The Audi Q4 e-tron at top spec is available as an all-wheel-drive EVs. Although this is one of the more expensive options on this list, it makes up for it with a spacious interior and impressive technology. The SUV body is built on the same frame as the Volkswagen ID.4, which appears later in this list. However, the Audi Q4 e-tron is a more luxurious choice and has a claimed range of 294 miles on its large battery.
One of the fastest SUVs on the market, the Jaguar I-Pace is an impressive AWD EV. Standard with electric motors on each axle, the SUV offers an excellent grip on the road. If the Jaguar I-Pace could offer the clearance, it could be in the conversation as an off-road vehicle. Regardless, this AWD electric car is great for driver handling and has plenty of power to back it up.
Polestar has long been Volvo’s off-shoot company for creating high-quality concept vehicles. It was no surprise when the company began focusing on developing electric cars. And the Polestar 2 has surpassed expectations as an AWD electric car that rivals the best of them. The modern body style is enough to appeal to consumers. However, the Polestar 2 offers impressive power, distance and charging times.
Tesla Model Y
The Tesla Model Y has impressed critics and consumers alike as the brand's mid-size SUV option from launch. The spacious and practical interior offers all of the quality technology expected from Tesla. However, where the Model Y turns heads is with its staggering performance as an all-wheel-drive electric car. The first of its type, the long-range version, claims a range of 315 miles. Meanwhile, the alternative performance version offers one of the fastest accelerations in its class.
The German automobile company had a clear plan when it began manufacturing the Volkswagen ID.4. Their goal was to help turn consumers over to the electric vehicle way of life. And thus, the Volkswagen ID.4 intentionally competes with traditional combustion crossovers such as the Toyota Rav 4. While not as powerful as some of the other AWD electric vehicles on this list, the relatively low entry price makes the Volkswagen ID.4 a competitive EV worth consideration.
Volvo XC40 Recharge
The final electric all-wheel drive vehicle on this list is Volvo’s first brand name electric car. The Volvo XC40 Recharge offers quality performance in power and towing capacity, a competent and practical option. Unfortunately, this AWD electric car is the only vehicle on this list that is based on an existing petrol-engine automobile. Regardless, the Volvo XC40 rivals the most incredible AWD EV’s and is a viable yet pricey alternative.
