The ID.6 is VW’s electric 3-row SUV.
It is inspired and based on the ID. Roomz concept from 2019.
The pics leaked through a Chinese government filing.
Volkswagen’s electric vehicle aspirations have been clear for a few years already. For the most part, their concepts have birthed a production with the possible exception of the very cool ID. Buggy. The ID. Roomz concept was introduced almost two years ago and now we get to see what the production ID.6 will look like.
The images show a large-midsize SUV that is, without a doubt, a Volkswagen. There are a number of visual cues shared with the ID.4 as well as the Roomz concept. The whole front-end treatment is almost identical to the concept. The greatest exception to that rule is the fact that the ID.6 features conventional opening doors and not rear- and forward-sliding doors.
As noted by electrek, the Volkswagen ID. Roomz features an 82-kWh battery which should be good for 450 km (WLTP) or 475 km (NEDC, China) of range. This same battery is found in the ID.4 and enables an EPA-estimated 250 miles or 400km of range. Assumingly, given the size and weight of the ID.6, that number will drop slightly. The Roomz included a 4Mtion electric all-wheel-drive variant with 302 horsepower, once more the same layout as the ID.4.
Finally, the bigger news about the Volkswagen ID.6 is, other than its size, is the possibility of a 3-row of seats. The market for these larger-midsize SUVs is booming and those considering an EV with this seating capacity are currently limited to the Tesla Model S and X, and by the summer, the Rivian R1S.
