Crossover VW ID.4 debuts in April at the New York Auto ShowJanuary 21, 2020
According to so far unconfirmed official information, the presentation of the electric crossover VW ID.4 will be held at the New York Auto Show.
Volkswagen began the presentation of its electric vehicles, which are built on the basis of the MEB modular platform, with the ID.3 compact hatchback, which was presented in September 2019 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Next in line will be the all-electric ID.4 crossover, which is essentially a serial version of the previously presented ID concept. Crozz. The latter was introduced back in 2017. Rumors have repeatedly confirmed that the serial version of the crossover will be presented in 2020.
Now it is said that VW management has chosen the New York Auto Show as the place where the ID will be shown. This is not at all surprising, given that the Detroit auto show has been postponed to June, and the Geneva auto show planned for March will be devoted mainly to the high-performance Golf GTI and its diesel “brother” GTD. Well, the guys from VW, of course, want nothing to distract the attention of the guests of the car dealership from the presentation of the crossover.
The serial production of the ID.4 crossover will be launched at the brand’s factory in Europe and China at the end of this year. The machine will also be manufactured in the United States, but assembly will not begin until 2022.
It is expected that ID.4 will be equipped with one electric motor (version with rear-wheel drive) in the lower configuration or two electric motors (all-wheel drive) for more expensive versions of the new item. As in the case of the ID.3 hatchback, customers are likely to get the opportunity to choose from batteries with different capacities, and the range, at least, will correspond to 402 km, because this is how much the ID concept could drive. Crozz on fully charged batteries.
