The first “hot” vehicle family ID will be a crossover later this version will have kupeobrazny SUV and a hatchback ID.3.
The German company now uses several prefixes to the names of their cars – the GTI, GTD and GTE. With their help, the manufacturer indicates the “charged” version of petrol, diesel and hybrid (respectively) cars. As we learned earlier, in a short time the range of prefixes to names of “heated” Volkswagen models can top up another GTX. First it will have electrocreaser ID.4.
What crossover family ID, created on motives of concept ID Crozz, the first will receive the “charged” version, according to British Autocar, citing technical Director Matthias Rabe Volkswagen. However, he has not yet confirmed the name of the prefix – GTX – for such machines.
Top Manager explained that ID.4 (length – 4.6 meters) was chosen as the firstborn of the “hot” line of “green” families, as now the clients who are interested in such a car, there is a need in all-wheel drive. And twin-engine crossover will be able to give it to them, unlike the hatchback’s ID.3, in which one motor is located on the rear axle. Thus the Matthias Rabe said that subsequently “heated” version will have “hatch”.
At the heart of “female” SUV ID.4 is a modular platform MEB (Modulare E-Antriebs-Baukasten). Previously the company announced that the first model will hit the market with rear-wheel drive, but later there will be four-wheel drive versions. It is expected that the initial version will receive the same installation as the ID.3 – a single motor located on the rear axle, with a return of 204 HP and a torque of 310 Nm.
The four-wheel drive variant will be two electric motors – one for each axis. It is likely that Volkswagen would use the same setup, which was equipped with concept ID Crozz. Recall that the cumulative effects of the two electric motors of this system is equal to 305 HP and maximum torque of 450 Nm.
Volkswagen ID.4 on a single charge can travel about 500 km (the calculation is conducted according to the WLTP cycle), while the official data about the battery yet. Recall, a reserve was the harbinger of the new: the ID Crozz was located under the floor of the Li-ion battery with a capacity of 83 kWh.
According to the newspaper, the GTX will also have kupeobrazny crossover “female” of the family, which will probably be called ID.5. It is expected to get the same filling as the “charged” ID.4.
We have previously reported to you that “green” family of the Volkswagen brand in 2023 added a new entry-level hatchback – this role will perform compact sitikar ID.1. Its dimensions will be approximately the same as VW e-up! Presumably the minimum price of the new budget “hatch” of the family ID will be less than 20 thousand euros.
