Following the cancellation of the Geneva Motor Show, Volkswagen has confirmed their electric crossover will be called the ID.4.

Announced in a webcast, Volkswagen said that the ID.4 will also be the first ID vehicle to hit the U.S. market. It will be produced and sold in Europe, China, and the U.S. Just like the ID.3, the ID.4 will be underpinned by the MEB platform.

VW confirmed that it will be available in both rear-wheel and all-wheel-drive, with the former being the launch configuration.

VW said that the ID.4 will have a fully digital cockpit, "operated primarily by using touch surfaces and intelligent, intuitive voice control." The German marque mentioned that the ID.4 will have up to 500 miles (805 kilometers) of range, depending on the drive package.

I'm eagerly following the ID4 because it's going to be the first ID model we receive in the US.

ID4 RELEASE DATE

The ID4 is a global vehicle, with launches forthcoming in Europe, the United States, and China. Europeans will receive the ID4 first, with the first customer deliveries later this year in 2020, with U.S. and Canada deliveries to follow either in late 2020 or in early 2021. Thankfully that's not far away! I have to wait longer for the ID Buzz.

The ID4 will be built in Europe (in Zwickau, Germany), in China, and at the Volkswagen factory in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The first deliveries around the world will come from the German plant operations, with the US plant beginning production sometime in 2022.

ID4 PRICE

Pricing in Europe will begin around 33,000 Euros, which should translate into a price of around $35,000 to start in the US, before tax incentives.

ID4 SPECS

The ID4, like the ID3, is rear-wheel-drive, which offers superior driving dynamics over much of the competition--like the Hyundai Kona--that is front wheel drive. An all-wheel-drive version will follow later. VW has not provided many specs yet, with more specification details to be revealed later.

The ID4 shares the MEB platform with the ID3, and other upcoming VW Group EV models, so final specs will likely be similar to the ID3. That means we can expect a 201 hp electric motor drawing power from a 58 kWh battery that offers at least 200 miles of range. DC fast charging using the SAE Combo protocol will allow the ID4 to charge rapidly using the Ionity network in Europe, Electrify America in the USA, and Electrify Canada in Canada. Less expensive ID4 trims will follow with less range and perfomance.
