Volkswagen ID.4 EV gets more style
Trading practicality for looks
New renderings out of Russia are here to give us a look at the upcoming crossover coupe version of the Volkswagen ID.4. A model we expect to see sometime next year, though the automaker has yet to officially reveal it.
We’ve already seen a coupe version of the ID.4 in spy shots while undergoing testing, and while it was disguised with a Kia-like front grille made from tape and vinyl, it was pretty clearly a VW. Especially since it was followed around by other new Volkswagens.
While there’s no official name yet, we’re liking ID.4 Cross Sport, in following with the two-row, sleeker version of the gas-powered Volkswagen Atlas crossover. Other reports suggest it could be called the ID.5 or ID.4 X.
These renderings, found on kolesa.ru, match with what we’ve seen in spy photography but are much clearer. They show a nose that’s near-identical to the ID.4 crossover, which started life as the ID. Crozz concept, before things get interesting at the tail. The roofline drops dramatically toward the rear, creating a sort of truncated trunk lid (that will most likely be a hatch for the sake of cargo access).
A small integrated spoiler in the rear helps maintain the model’s aerodynamics, crucial for an EV, and it would most likely share the same platform, motors, and battery pack with the ID.4. The ID.4 initially is set to arrive with a 204 hp electric motor and 520 km WLTP range.
No word yet on when to expect anything official from VW on this model.
