The Volkswagen ID.4 Crozz Concept is expected have more than 300 PS of power and have a driving range of 500 km. It will be based on the same platform as ID.3.
Volkswagen has made a lot of headlines recently with the launch of the ID.3 hatchback at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The ID.3 electric hatchback gives a new direction to the brand and is the third most important product for them after the Beetle and the Golf. Now, Volkswagen has already given a sneak peak into the next member of the ID family – the Volkswagen ID.4.
The Volkswagen ID.4 was seen wrapped in camouflage at Volkswagen’s stall at Frankfurt. At first glance, the ID.4 prototype appears to resemble the ID Crozz concept that was earlier spied testing on public roads. It will be safe to assume that the EV crossover will be based off the concept.
There are no details or pictures of the interiors of the ID.4 yet but it will also be tech-laden as the ID.3. Some of the features that you could be seeing in the ID.4 are AR (Augmented Reality) head-up display, touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as ambient lighting and a panoramic glass roof.
The Volkswagen ID.4 will also be underpinned by the MEB electric platform, just like the ID.3. Under the hood, it will be powered by two electric motors that could have a combined power output of more than 300 PS. The two electric motors will likely be placed on each axle to give it an all-wheel drive system. The ID.4 is expected to have a large battery with range of up to 500 km and fast charging capability as well that tops up the battery for a range of 290 km in just 30 mins.
More information of the Volkswagen ID.4 Crozz Concept is still quite scarce and moreover, the ID.3 has been gaining all spotlights at Frankfurt Motor Show, defining Volkswagen’s electric car era. The ID.4 is expected to make its debut in 2020 with a launch followed later that year itself. There has been no word on if it will come to India or not. However, rival brands like MG and Hyundai are already offering or are going to offer EV crossovers in India and as the infrastructure for EV grows, it wouldn’t be an impossible task for Volkswagen.
