ID.CROZZ concept car evolves to ID.4. It is confident and progressive on the road, is always on, and generates zero emissions – in the heart of the world’s most popular market segment. Volkswagen grants a glimpse of its first all-electric, compact SUV, the ID.4, as a prototype. The second ID. family model will be launched in Europe in 2020. Just like the compact ID.3 it uses the Group’s modular electric drive matrix (MEB).
The name is revealing: the digit 4 identifies the new model as a representative of the compact SUV segment. It is a direct successor of the ID.3, a vehicle with which Volkswagen has opened the third major chapter in its history, following on from the Beetle and Golf. The abbreviation ID. stands for intelligent design, identity and visionary technologies.
Plenty of room within the Open Space. The ID.4’s aerodynamically refined vehicle exterior perfectly sets the stage for the MEB’s revolutionary architecture: the vehicle’s front end is short, the wheelbase long, giving superlative space on the inside. The driver and passengers in the ID.4 take a seat in the Open Space, the airy and bright vehicle interior.
A host of modular drive components is available for the ID.4 – initially with rear-wheel drive, later also as a powerful, electric all-wheel drive variant. The high-voltage battery is always installed under the passenger cell to guarantee the vehicle’s low centre of gravity and a well balanced axle load distribution. The battery can be charged with AC and DC and three-phase current as standard. Ranges of up to 500 kilometres are possible depending on the drive package.
Simple operation. The cockpit of the ID.4 has been clearly structured and it is almost completely controlled by touch functions or intelligent Natural Voice control. Volkswagen’s first all-electric SUV offers high levels of safety technologies and full connectivity.
The ID.4 is the world’s first climate-neutral, compact SUV. The vehicle, which is produced at the Zwickau plant,is carbon-neutral along the entire value chain. Volkswagen’s comprehensive charging offering also makes it possible for customers to recharge the ID.4 with renewable energy.
