Volkswagen is looking to make electric cars even more attainable to the buying market. Back in September 2019, Volkswagen revealed what they call the "people's electric car" - the ID.3. The fully electric hatchback will come with a sleek shape, a claimed 550 km cruising range, over 200 horsepower and 300 Nm of torque.

Now, the company has expanded its EV lineup with the ID.4. Serving as the brand's first-ever electric crossover, it's the latest model to use Volkswagen's modular electric drive matrix (MEB) platform.

The ID.4 is based on the ID Crozz² concept shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2017. Although the concept showed a coupe-SUV body style, VW decided to go with a standard crossover styling for its first production crossover SUV model set to be officially launched later this year.

Volkswagen says the ID.4 will be available in either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel-drive. Exact output figures haven't been revealed, however, VW says it can go up to 500 km, depending on the drive package. In addition, the battery pack is mounted near the center of the underbody in order to create a low center of gravity and a well-balanced axle load distribution.

Interior pics have yet to be shown as well, though the automaker said that it will have plenty of cabin space thanks to the compact powertrain. More importantly, it will come with a fully-digital cockpit, touch-sensitive surfaces to control certain functions, and intelligent voice control.

Volkswagen will produce and sell the ID.4 in Europe, China, and the US.
