The commitment to electric cars begins to take shape at Volkswagen. Its first 100% electric vehicles, the ID.3s, will soon be joined by the ID.4s, which will become Volkswagen’s first SUVs with that new approach away from traditional combustion engines.
We had already known some of the first details about the new Volkswagen ID.4, but now a set of leaked images have allowed us to know much more about its exterior design.
An SUV that promises 500 km of autonomy and up to 306 HP of power
The lines of this 100% electric SUV were already guessing in the images that the firm shared on the occasion of the 2020 Geneva Motor Show, but now a Chinese publication has leaked a set of images that allow knowing the ID.4 from different perspectives.
Not only that: the dimensions of this electric car have also been revealed: it will measure 4,565 mm long, 1,865 mm wide and 1,621 mm high. That size puts it between the five-seat Tiguan and its seven-seat Tiguan AllSpace edition.
The lines of the ID.4 seem to be a variation or adaptation of those of the ID.3 to this SUV format, and for example it highlights a front with headlights that seem to “connect” with the brand’s logo in the center. There is no central grill, but there is a remarkable bumper.
This Volkswagen ID.4 has 19-inch wheels (there will be an option for a 20-inch model), and the back is reminiscent of the Volkswagen T-Cross.
We have already mentioned in the past that this model will offer a range of up to 500 km, which is expected to be associated with a 77 Wh battery. It is expected that there will be a version with two engines (one per axle) which will give it 306 HP of all-wheel drive.
The leak of these images seems to make it clear that the official presentation of this model is very close: it will be then when we can confirm all these data and reveal all those that are missing, including, of course, the price.
For example, details of the interior are not known, but it seems unlikely that the ID.Crozz concepts that were the starting point of this design will be adopted.
The striking retractable steering wheel and rear sliding doors may not be part of the final version, but the integration of touchscreens as part of the vehicle’s dashboard seems likely.
