Volkswagen Teases ID.4 Again, Says Reveal Within Weeks

VW ID.4, née Crozz is ready for reveal "in a matter of weeks" automaker says

  • ID.4 global electric crossover ready for reveal

  • Expected 500 km range, AWD available later


Volkswagen’s second in its new lineup of electric vehicles has been teased by the auto manufacturer for what feels like years. Now, though, they’re giving us an even better look at the ID.4, and letting us know that the reveal of the production model is nearly here.

Unlike the Volkswagen ID.3, a Golf-like hatch that is already on sale in Europe and not likely to make it to market here, the ID.4 crossover is bound for North American roads. What we didn’t know was when, though we expected it to arrive sooner rather than later. Now VW says that the production model will be fully revealed “in a matter of weeks.”

It’s part of VW’s plans to build more than 1.5 million EVs a year by 2025. One of those will be the ID.4, which we originally saw in concept car form as the I.D. Crozz back at the Frankfurt show in 2019. Ok, maybe it just feels like it’s been years, but the first half of this year has been a long one.

The drawings VW released of the ID.4 show a vehicle that seems to look much like the Crozz concept. A fairly straightforward small crossover that largely follows VW’s current design language, but with a sleeker look and a lack of a grille (since it doesn’t need one).

When the concept launched, VW told us to expect a range of up to 500 km depending on the model, and that it would be rear-drive only with around 200 hp. AWD would follow with an extra motor in the front. We’ll have to wait just a few more weeks for the full details.
