Twisted cubes, crossed cubes, Möbius cubes, and locally twisted cubes are some of the widely studied hypercube variants. The 4-pancyclicity of twisted cubes, crossed cubes, Möbius cubes, locally twisted cubes and the 4-edge-pancyclicity of twisted cubes, crossed cubes, Möbius cubes are proven in [C.P. Chang, J.N. Wang, L.H. Hsu, Topological properties of twisted cube, Inform. Sci. 113 (1999) 147-167; C.P. Chang, T.Y. Sung, L.H. Hsu, Edge congestion and topological properties of crossed cubes, IEEE Trans.

It should be noted that 4-edge-pancyclicity implies 4-node-pancyclicity which further implies 4-pancyclicity. In this paper, we outline an approach to prove the 4-edge-pancyclicity of some hypercube variants and we prove in particular that Möbius cubes and locally twisted cubes are 4-edge-pancyclic.
