The ID.4 is on its way. The series production version of the purely electrically powered Volkswagen SUV is to be launched before the end of 2020. Designed for use in Europe, China and North America, the SUV will initially go on the market with rear-wheel drive, while an electric all-wheel drive variant will follow at a later stage. The high-voltage battery is positioned in the sandwich-design underbody to create an optimum, low centre of gravity in terms of driving dynamics, along with an extremely well-balanced axle load distribution. Like all models based on the new Modular Electric Drive Matrix (MEB), the ID.4 will be very spacious thanks to its compact electric drive technology. The cockpit of the zero-emission SUV is clearly structured and consistently digitalised; operation is largely via touch surfaces and intuitive voice control.
