Two versions will be offered in China: Crozz and X.
The ID.6 is 30cm longer than the ID.4.
Might the ID.6 eventually replace the Atlas in North America?
Volkswagen is aggressively launching new models on the Chinese market, from the new Golf GTI to the extra-large Talagon, as well as the ID.6 midsize SUV. The latter is the largest vehicle currently assembled on Volkswagen’s MEB EV platform.
The three-row Volkswagen ID.6 has formally been introduced at Auto Shanghai 2021. With its arrival, we now have more details on the large-midsize electric SUV. In China, it will be offered with one of two batteries with a storage capacity of 58 kWh and 77 kWh. Ranges are between 436 and 588 km (China NEDC). The AWD dual-motor versions have a total system output of 300 horsepower which will enable the SUV to reach 100 km/h from a standstill in 6.6 seconds and hit a maximum speed of 160 km/h.
The ID.6 will feature a 12-inch touchscreen display, an augmented reality head-up display as well as seating for seven, and far more.
Clearly, the ID.6 is large, 30cm longer in fact than the ID.4. At 4.88 meters long, it’s 29.7cm shorter than the Atlas. By comparison, the Tiguan, as we know it, measures 4.7 meters in length, or 39.5cm less than the Atlas. Now while both the ID.6 and Atlas feature three rows of seating, the petrol-burner is more in tune with what the North American market wants.
We’re speculating here but we know the upcoming ID.Buzz will be 5 meters putting it within less than a hand’s width in overall length to the Atlas. Might Volkswagen bring the ID.6 to eventually replace the Atlas (and Cross Sport) and offer up the Buzz to those who need a larger vehicle?
