Volkswagen ID.4: Electric SUV teased
Following the full launch of its ID.3, Volkswagen has teased its second all-electric model – the ID.4. Taking the shape of an SUV, it’s the next step of the brand’s EV offensive, and we’ve been given our first look at the new model, albeit in camouflage.
The car you see here is a pre-production prototype. We actually caught a glimpse of it at the Frankfurt Motor Show back in September. However, these pictures give us a much better look.
It gets a similar front to the ID.3, with a luminescent strip running the length of the front and incorporating the all-new VW logo.
The roofline is fairly low, presumably to keep the centre of gravity low and create a swoopier design than the rest of VW’s SUV range; it certainly looks sportier than a Tiguan anyway.
No shots of the interior have been revealed, and exact details on its powertrain and battery set-up are scarce. If it’s anything along the lines of the ID Crozz concept though, it’ll sit on VW’s MEB platform and feature two electric motors that will put out around 300hp combined.
A range of more than 300 miles is on the cards too, although exact details are still to be confirmed.
We’ll bring you more details as they’re revealed. A further electric concept from VW is set for a 19 November reveal. Expect the ID.4 to arrive on in full production form from 2021.
