Volkswagen has sensed that the future of the automobile is electric. Suddenly, the German is accelerating the electrification of its catalog, which to date has only two micro-city cars e-Up and e-Golf. After the ID.3 and months of teasings and rumors, Volkswagen is finally unveiling the final and commercial version of its first electric SUV, the ID.4. On the menu full of good things, including a range of 550 km on the odometer. Heavy for a fairly attractive price of 43,000 euros.
When German combines efficiency and modernity
With an 8-year or 160,000 km guarantee, the Vokswagen ID.4 is THE automotive sensation of the year 2020.
Indeed mired in the scandal of the emissions figures of its diesel engines, Volkswagen is looking for a new lease of life and a way to restore its image. This could well go through the electric which has made the German giant its playground. While various city models are offered by VW, the ID.4 is its first true 100% electric SUV.
The revolution is under the hood with 550 km of autonomy
While its latest thermal models are expected in 2033, Volkswagen is expanding its catalog of electric vehicles, most of which find their customers.
And the ID.4 will be no exception to this rule. In particular thanks to a muscular XXL configuration that will appeal to thrill seekers on the road. Indeed, three battery configurations will be available: 45, 55 and 77 kWh. Enough to give it a range of between 520 and 550 km. With the possibility of ultra-economical driving to reach 600 km on the road. Only Tesla and Hyundai offer such levels of autonomy at present.
However, it is on another theater that the real score of VW is played. Especially on the engine side where we are entitled to the ID.4 with two variants of 195 and 225 kW. Enough to propel the machine from 0 to 100 km / h in just 8.5 seconds. With 160 km / h top speed.
