The world premiere of the ID.4 will follow at the end of September, and the market launch will also take place this year. Volkswagen is thus taking the next important step on the way to the mobile electric age – this time in the world’s most important segment of compact SUVs. The ID.4 combines Volkswagen’s electric offensive with the ongoing SUV trend. “However, the ID.4 is not only the first fully-electric SUV from the Volkswagen brand," says Brand Director Ulbrich at the start of series production of the new ID. model. “It will also be a genuine world car, which we will produce and sell not only in Europe, but also in China and the USA.”
Production of the ID.4 will start in China before the end of this year, and from 2022 the model will also be produced in North America. “The ID.4 is technically top equipped with future-oriented features, has a low center of gravity and super driving dynamics. It also has excellent acceleration. A car that is simply a lot of fun,” says Ulbrich.
With the ID. family, Volkswagen is bringing a complete model family onto the road for the first time that is powered purely electrically. The ID.3 and ID.4 will be followed by other sedans and SUVs as well as the electric Volkswagen Bus – the legendary Bulli. All derivatives are based on the Modular Electric Drive Kit (MEB) – a platform designed exclusively for electric vehicles. MEB-based electric vehicles impress with long ranges, a fast-charging function, new digital functions and generous space.
