New Volkswagen ID.4 2021: range of 520 km and price from 40 thousand dollars.
After a series of leaks preceding the premiere, the Volkswagen ID.4 2021 electric SUV has finally officially debuted.

This is the second battery model in the German brand’s lineup, and the pioneer here, we recall, is the ID.3 hatchback.

The new Volkswagen is built on the same platform with the recently shown crossover Skoda Enyaq iV. The modular MEB architecture used by both vehicles is based on a rear-mounted electric motor, but there is also an all-wheel drive scheme with an additional motor on the front axle.

Twin-engine versions will become available for purchase at a later date, while orders are open for executions with a single 204 hp engine. The price of such Volkswagen ID.4 models in Germany is at least 43 330 euros, in the USA — 39 995 dollars.

The all-wheel drive versions of the ID.4 AWD will cost $ 43,695 in the North American market. Deliveries of the machines assembled at the Zwickau plant to customers in Europe will begin before the end of this year. American dealers will have live cars in the first quarter of 2021.

In the future, it is planned to start production of crossovers in the USA, at the Volkswagen Chattanooga plant. Localization of the assembly will reduce the base price of the electric car to $ 35,000.

External design and dimensions

The body of the new Volkswagen ID.4 2021 is designed in the same style as the ID.3 hatchback. At the front, the classic radiator grille is absent, so the company logo is placed in the center of the strip connecting the headlights.

Quite large, elongated optics blocks go onto the sidewalls, as if emphasizing the excellent aerodynamics of the model (Cx coefficient is 0.28).

At the same time, the sculpted front bumper with a large air intake cutout in the lower part adds solidity and solidity to the car.

The fodder of the novelty attracts primarily by the unusual graphics of the lanterns that form a single composition. The side panels of the SUV body delight with clean lines, the smoothness of which is broken by a thin rib passing over the door handles and making a wave-like bend over the rear wheel arches.

In terms of dimensions, the new ID.4 is slightly more compact than its sister Enyaq iV. With a slight difference to the wheelbase (2771 mm for ID, 2765 mm for Enyaq), Volkswagen is 65 mm shorter than Skoda — 4584 against 4649 mm. The width of the German electric car is 1852 mm, the height is 1631 mm. The ground clearance is 210 mm.

The battery SUV body color palette includes six shades: Glacier White Metallic, Mythos Black Metallic, Scale Silver Metallic, Moonstone Gray,

Blue Dusk Metallic and King’s Red Metallic. The model comes standard with a base painted roof, black roof rails and 19-inch wheels. As an option, a contrasting black roof or roof with panoramic glass, silver roof rails, 20-inch wheels are available for the crossover.

Equipment

The interior of the Volkswagen ID.4 looks somewhat futuristic, since it is almost devoid of physical buttons (only the buttons for controlling the power windows and activating the emergency gang remained analog) and as much as possible unloaded from non-functional elements.

There are two information displays here — a virtual dashboard ID.Cockpit (size 5.3 inches) and the screen of the standard Discover Pro media center (diagonal 10 or 12 inches).

The instrument cluster is interesting in that to the right of it there is a rotary switch for transmission modes. The picture is adjusted using the touch keys on the steering wheel. The onboard functionality provides for voice control, 4G LTE Internet and access points for connecting up to four devices.
