Volkswagen: A More Robust Electric Utility Vehicle in the Plans?

Could a more "robust" all-electric SUV join Volkswagen's growing ID. lineup? According to reports, the German carmaker might be working on one.

  • A new ID. family member could see the light of day;
  • A British magazine said the new model could be a more “robust” all-electric SUV;
  • Its design should be closer to the EQB or the iX3.

The Geneva Motor Show will soon be the scene of a very long list of unveilings, some being relevant to our market, others not so much. At Volkswagen, there will be something for everyone, but the highlight of the show will be reserved for the new Golf GTI, a compact sports car that no longer really needs presentation.

Despite the imminent arrival of the model’s eighth generation, the Wolfsburg’s giant has not changed its goal to electrify its fleet in a few years.

We already know that the first ID.4 crossover will be unveiled this summer, probably at the North American International Auto Show, in Detroit, while other purely electric models will eventually join the Volkswagen range. British magazine Autocar believes, however, that the automaker’s top management would be tempted by a utility model with a slightly more “robust” look, a trend that has been gaining popularity in the industry for several years.

Of course, this utility vehicle project would keep its electric motorization but would distance itself from the ID.4 which should, in theory, be strongly inspired by the prototype ID.CROZZ, a vehicle featuring many curves. According to the publication, this future ID. utility would be closer to the Mercedes-Benz EQB or even the BMW iX3, two SUVs with a more traditional form.

Volkswagen will have to be watched over the next few months, the German manufacturer which will undoubtedly increase the number of announcements on its electric ID. range. And adding a more “robust” model would certainly be welcomed by our neighbours south of the 49th parallel.
