Volkswagen ID.4 spotted undergoing high altitude testing

Volkswagen ID.4 spotted undergoing high altitude testing
  • The second pure electric product from Volkswagen under new sub-brand.
  • Expected to break cover next year with similar powertrain as the ID.3

After showcasing the ID.3 at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show last week, Volkswagen has gotten busy with the next model under its new ID brand. Called the ID.4, the second pure electric Volkswagen will be based on the ID Crozz Concept from the 2017 Shanghai Motor Show. A production-ready prototype of the same was recently spotted at the Austrian Alps undergoing high altitude testing.

Based on the same MEB platform as the ID.3 (and all the other upcoming electric car under VW Group), the ID.4 is expected to measure the same as the concept it was previewed with – which was approximately 4625x1891x1609mm. This means that the ID.4 is almost as big as the Tiguan, despite what the images suggest. The electric crossover appears to retain much of the same exterior themes of the ID Crozz under the typical VW camouflage. Although the rear sliding doors seen on the concept are replaced by conventional ones.

Under the wrap, the ID.4 sports similar headlamps and grille as seen on the ID.3 thus retains the family face. The conventional roofline of the crossover has a rather upright D-pillar. This also means that there could be a separate ‘coupe’ version of the ID.4. The high-placed LED tail lamps are also akin to the ID.3 and carry forward the elements from the Crozz Concept as well.

Powering the ID.4 will be a two-motor setup – one on each axle – which will be supplied by an 83kWh lithium-ion battery pack placed under the floor. Combined output is expected to be around 300 horsepower. But being a crossover, Volkswagen might also fit in all-terrain hardware to keep it relevant for the SUV-crossover buyers across the globe.

Volkswagen might take the wraps off the all-new ID.4 sometime next year. The German giant has plans of an electric offensive in the coming decade and so we expect the ID.4 to hit the streets sooner rather than later.
