An electric city car can drive up to 298 km.

At the end of last year, the Volkswagen Group promised to release 75 electric vehicles and 60 hybrids by 2029. Of course, this number will include electric cars and hybrids from several brands that make up the concern. In light of the canceled Geneva Motor Show this year, VW unveiled the official name for its ID.4 crossover. Moreover, ID.4 will be the first German-made electric crossover to reach the United States.

But Volkswagen seems to be steadily realizing its vision of launching the promised number of electric cars on time. According to the report of Car Magazine U.K., the smallest and initial level of the ID range will be called ID.1 and will have such overall dimensions as the VW e-up! for easy maneuverability in the city. It is also reported that other models are currently being developed: Crozz ID.1 and e-Roomzz van.

Of course, the ID.1 electric city car will rely on the universal MEB architecture, as will ID.3 and ID.4. As for the technical part, ID.1 is said to receive two battery options, most likely 24 kWh and 36 kWh. It is reported that a larger battery will have a range of 185 miles or 298 kilometers.
