The fully-electric Volkswagen ID.4 SUV has launched in Europe where it will sell alongside the ID.3 hatchback.
At launch, the rear-wheel drive ID.4 will be equipped with a 77kWh battery pack that powers a 150kW/309Nm electric motor. According to the WLTP cycle, a full charge provides up to 520 kilometres of range.
Volkswagen says the ID.4 can complete the 0-100km/h sprint in 8.5 seconds.
When charging with a 120kW DC connection owners can add 320km range in 30 minutes, while the 11kW on-board charger can deliver 53km of range in about an hour.
The range will expand to include 109kW and 125kW motors paired to a 52kWh battery, and a 129kW motor with a 77kWh battery.
There will also be a 225kW all-wheel drive performance that uses a dual-motor configuration driven by a 77kWh battery.
Dimensionally, the ID.4 measures in at 4584mm long, 1852mm wide and 1612mm tall, with a 2766mm wheelbase. For context, that puts the car between the Tiguan and Tiguan Allspace in Volkswagen’s line-up.
Boot space is listed at 543L with the rear seats in place and 1575L when the second row is folded flat.
On the inside, the ID.4 adopts the minimalist design of the ID.3 hatch. The driver gets a 5.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 10.0-inch infotainment touchscreen, the latter is expanded to a 12.0-inch screen in higher grades.
At this stage, Volkswagen’s Australian arm is yet to confirm local availability.
