Volkswagen Confirms ID 4 Electric SUV

Volkswagen just revealed the company’s first battery-electric ID model this week with the ID 3 hatchback, but that isn’t the only ID news this week. VW has also confirmed the next ID model will be the ID 4 SUV, which was teased during the ID 3’s reveal.

The ID 4 will be the production version of the ID Crozz Concept, which was revealed in 2017. Expect the ID 4 to look very similar to the Crozz, confirmed by the camouflaged ID 4 Volkswagen has at its Frankfurt Motor Show display (seen above). The ID 4 will also be the first VW ID vehicle to arrive in the United States sometime next year as a 2021 model.

Volkswagen has yet to confirm any other details surrounding the ID 4, but expect its mechanical makeup to follow that of the ID 3 closely. The ID 3 offers three different battery sizes, which are 45, 58 and 77 kWh. All variations send electrons to a motor mounted at the rear axle of the car, which is the basis of the VW MEB architecture. A dual-motor all-wheel-drive variant is also expected.

Speaking of the dual-motor option, the ID Crozz Concept was powered by a dual-motor powertrain that offered 302 horsepower.

Volkswagen’s lofty electrification plans will not stop with the ID 4. The company has already confirmed plans to rollout a revived Microbus model in 2022 that will arrive in the U.S. as well. A large sedan and midsize SUV are also expected to arrive over the next couple of years.

While the ID 4 isn’t likely to be produced in the U.S., Volkswagen will begin building some of its battery-electric models at its Chattanooga, Tennessee assembly plant in 2022.
