Immediately after all development work in Germany came to an end, the first prototypes of the Volkswagen ID.4 arrived in North America for revision.

We know that the Germans are adapting their electrocross for the American car market thanks to the latest video teaser. Now the brand has moved from words to deeds. It is known that “green” SUVs will enter the conveyor belt in the States after successfully passing all the necessary tests. The online presentation of the ID.4 at Volkswagen is scheduled for 23 September.

Shortly after this event, the electric car will be available for booking. At the same time, those wishing to place a pre-order will have to make a symbolic prepayment of $ 100. Once production starts, booking owners will have to deposit an additional $ 400. The Volkswagen ID.4 engine range for the USA is still kept secret. Most likely, at the start of sales, the brand will offer the Americans a rear-wheel drive electric car with a 201-horsepower electric motor. An all-wheel drive car with a more powerful 302 hp engine. should come out later.

The capacity of the top battery should be enough for a run of 500 kilometers. Recall that the debut markets for the ID.4 electric car will be Europe and China.

The preliminary production of battery-powered SUVs is already underway at enterprises in the German Zwickau and Chinese Antiga. In the USA, the novelty will be registered at the plant in Tennessee. True, this will happen in 2022.

Meanwhile, a large electric crossover Volkswagen ID.6 was spotted in tests. The car was built on a new modern platform, due to which the cross will be able to boast of great power and a good range.
