Volkswagen ID 6 Coming In 2023 With 700-Kilometre Range

700 km from sleek-looking Vizzion-based ID 6

  • ID 6 based on ID Vizzion sedan concept

  • Expected to market for 2023


The fifth electric vehicle from the Volkswagen ID line will be a production version of the Vizzion concept that could hit market in 2023 and offer an electric range of up to 700 km and wear the ID 6 badge says a new report.

According to Autocar, citing head of VW research and development Frank Welsch, the ID 6 is being developed as a rival to the BMW i4 and Mercedes-Benz EQE under the name Aero-B. Though that’s just an internal project name and not expected to be used on the completed vehicle.

Riding on Volkswagen Group’s MEB electric platform, the model is expected to be a four-door coupe, sort of an electric version of Volkswagen’s Arteon but with more futuristic styling. The report says it will have exterior dimensions like the European version of the Passat sedan but with Phaeton-like interior space thanks to the electric driveline.

Autocar says the 6 is likely to be popular in China, and that the number six has connotations of wellbeing in that country. One motor in a rear-drive layout will be offered as well as a twin-motor all-wheel drive setup. A variety of battery choices are expected, but Welsch said that the largest would have an 84 kWh pack offering 700 km of range on the WLTP cycle. That’s 150 km more than the Volkswagen ID 3 Pro S and its 77 kWh. Welsch credited that to improved efficiency inside the cells, lower rolling resistance, and aerodynamic improvements.

Production is expected for the VW Emden, Germany, plant, home to the Passat and Arteon. It’s undergoing upgrades currently that the report says will give it capacity for 300,000 EVs annually by 2023.
