We prove a Koebe distortion theorem for the average derivative of a quasiconformal mapping between domains in the sub-Riemannian Heisenberg group H1. Several auxiliary properties of quasiconformal mappings between subdomains of H1 are proven, including BMO estimates for the logarithm of the Jacobian. Applications of the Koebe theorem include diameter bounds for images of curves, comparison of integrals of the average derivative and the operator norm of the horizontal differential, as well as the study of quasiconformal densities and metrics in domains in H1. The theorems are discussed for the sub-Riemannian and the Korányi distances. This extends results due to Astala–Gehring, Astala–Koskela, Koskela and Bonk–Koskela–Rohde.
