Volkswagen unveils the ID.6 electric SUV
Two versions and up to seven seats
Volkswagen continues to develop its ID range at high speed in order to get a valuable lead over the competition, which is still slow to take off. The ID.6, a large seven-seater SUV, will soon join the ID family, which already includes the ID.3 compact car and the ID.4 crossover.
The new ID.6 will be available in two versions. The first is the ID.6 Crozz, which has an off-road character. It uses more raw plastic elements and has more prominent satin grey covers. The ID.6 Crozz also has a more bulbous look and a rear end with distinctive taillights.
The other version, the ID.6 X, is more conventional with a more modest ground clearance and a more sober overall style. In both cases, the ID.6 is a particularly imposing vehicle with a length of 4.88 m, a width of 1.85 m, a height of 1.68 m and above all a giant wheelbase of 2.97 m!
Unsurprisingly, the interior is based on the architecture of the ID.3 and ID.4, with a large touch screen and a small instrument cluster with the gear selector on the right-hand side. However, the interior is more premium, as evidenced by the presence of stitching on the door panels.
No information has been revealed concerning the equipment but the ID.6 should logically have the same technologies as its little brother, the ID.4, such as voice control and an augmented reality head-up display. On the technical side, the SUV hides two electric motors developing a choice of 180, 204 or 306 PS.
The torque will then vary between 220 or 310 Nm depending on the version chosen. The ID.6 will be equipped with two batteries. The first has a capacity of 58 kWh for a range of 271 mi (436 km) and the second has 77 kWh for a range of 365 mi (588 km). In both cases, the figures are based on the NEDC cycle.
The new Volkswagen ID.6 will be produced and sold in China. There are no plans to market it in Europe or the USA at the moment.
