Volkswagen's All-New Electric Compact SUV - The ID.4
Volkswagen is making a pledge to become entirely carbon-neutral by 2050. Volkswagen is currently investing one billion euros to reduce their fleet's carbon emissions by a third, as early as 2025. In an effort to electrify its model range, Volkswagen are introducing an increasing number of hybrid and electric powertrain vehicles to the range, which will in turn significantly help to reduce the fleet's future emissions.
A new addition to the Volkswagen fleet is the ID.4, an all-new electric, compact SUV. Taking inspiration from the ID.3, the ID.4 is an aerodynamic and sustainable vehicle, featuring an abundance of state-of-the-art technology. The ID.4 brings the strong and practical elements of a Volkswagen SUV, along with impressive efficiency and striking design features both inside and out. The combination of both sustainability, versatility and style is what makes the all-new ID.4 an exciting and unique electric SUV.
The ID.4 features innovative technology, intelligent systems, advanced battery technology, outstanding sustainability, impressive performance and an overall captivating design. As for the interior of the ID.4, thanks to its compact and electric drive technology there is plenty of cabin space and a fully digital cockpit which is operated via touch surfaces and intelligent, intuitive voice control.
The ID.4 will initially be launched with a rear-wheel drive power-train, while an all-wheel drive version will be added to the range at a later date. Optimum driving dynamics are achieved thanks to the high-voltage battery being positioned near the center of the underbody, creating a low centre of gravity along with a well-balanced axle load distribution.
Here's what Volkswagen's Chief Operating Officer, Ralf Brandstätter had to say about the ID.4, “The outstanding aerodynamics reduce the drag coefficient, and it will boost the ID.4’s range to up to 500 kilometres, depending on the drive package.”
The all-new ID.4 was recently unveiled during a webcast due to the cancellation of the Geneva Motor Show and is set to be launched later this year.
