In Europe, the buzz is all about Volkswagen’s upcoming ID.3, but we Yanks are much more excited about the next vehicle in the pipeline, the ID.4, because, unlike so many of the current generation of EVs, it’s slated to be sold here in the US.
Few details of VW’s electric crossover have been released, beyond the basic specs and pricing. Now some photos that were submitted to China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology have been revealed on the Chinese web site Autohome (via Motor Authority).
Now we know the dimensions of the new EV: approximately 181 inches long, 73 inches wide, and 64 inches high. By comparison, Tesla’s Model Y is 187 inches long.
At an expected price under $40,000, the ID.4 would be cheaper than Tesla’s current Model Y offerings, which start at $52,990, although Tesla may have a cheaper version of the Y available by the time the ID.4 hits the streets.
In May, a German auto blogger reported that he saw the ID.4 being produced at VW’s Zwickau factory. The company says it will also produce the ID.4 at at its plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee, starting in 2022.
