In a move that comes as no surprise, Volkswagen has confirmed its ID Crozz concept will go into production under the name ID.4, keeping with the company’s nomenclature for its lineup of electric vehicles. Along with the naming confirmation, VW has also dropped some official camouflaged photos of the ID.4.
VW says the ID.4 will initially be offered in rear-wheel-drive, but all-wheel-drive will become an option later on. Details of its electric power are still a mystery, but the automaker says to expect a drive range of 500 kilometers, or around 310 miles. While 310 miles is supposedly the highest range, VW is hinting that the ID.4 will offer multiple power options; likely different battery pack sizes.
Production of the ID.4 is expected to commence later this year at VW’s Zwickau, Germany assembly plant. This plant is carbon neutral, meaning the ID.4 will be carbon neutral along its whole journey. The Zwickau plant produces the ID.3 electric hatchback as well.
The photos released show an ID.4 that looks ready for production. Basically VW has removed some of the extra flare from the ID Crozz concept and smoothed out the sheetmetal a bit for the ID.4. Based on the MEB architecture, the ID.4 is expected to be quite roomy for passengers.
Along with the ID.4 news, Volkswagen says it is upping its EV sales target for 2025 to 1.5 million units. Originally VW was planning to sell only 1 million EV’s by 2025.
