With the massive success of Volkswagen’s first all-electric car, the brand isn’t sitting on its laurels, but pressing ahead quickly with the next one – the new ID.4, the brand’s first electric SUV. Rather than sitting on a modified petrol car platform like the Mercedes EQC or Audi E-Tron, the new ID.4 uses a purposefully designed platform shared with the ID.3, meaning it can place its batteries at the optimum point meaning a fantastically low centre of gravity and excellent packaging, so the new model has a huge amount of interior space, much more than conventional petrol engined models of the same approximate size such as the Nissan Qashqai. The ID4 will also share its chassis and tech as usual with the Volkswagen group sister brands so expect similar models such as the Skoda Enyaq. and the Seat equivalent.
Multiple choices of motor power and battery size will be offered to give customers a choice of ranges, with the largest being a 83kWh unit capable of around 311 miles on the WLTP test cycle, and will have optional rapid charging of up to 150kW. Both a standard rear drive model and a more expensive more powerful 4 wheel drive model will be offered, with around 200 horsepower from the rear electric motor and the extra front motor adding another 100 horsepower giving outstanding acceleration, plus excellent traction in poor weather conditions as the motors can give just enough power before wheels start to spin much more accurately than any conventional engine. We expect the car to launch with an initial fully loaded “launch edition” model followed by several spec levels like the Plus, the Max and the performance GTX model.
