Volkswagen ID.4 will be cheaper Tesla


The German manufacturer intends to press Tesla. The company promises that electric cars family of EV will be affordable.

The first-born “female” of the family VW was a hatchback ID.3. The serial version of the model was presented last week at the auto show in Frankfurt. The second model is “around the corner”: at the stand behind the glass revealed a prototype of the future crossover, which according to preliminary data will be called ID.4 or ID.4x. It is assumed that the electric SUV will begin to supply customers in Europe and the United States in the second half of 2020. By the way, the hatch ID.3 States will not go.

Accurate prices for new brand yet. Thus, the cost of the hatchback version of the 1st Edition will be about 40 thousand euros, and the base ID.3 will cost less than 30 thousand euros. For the next crossover family of EV not yet named even the approximate prices. According to Green Car Reports, the head of the American division of VW Scott Keogh said that the price tag of the SUV will be roughly equal to the cost of the Tiguan with the engine. Note, in Germany the price of the Tiguan starts from $ 30 025 euros, and in the United States purchase a basic SUV will cost 25 $ 290.


So the basic version of the Volkswagen electrocreaser ID.4 may be cheaper compared to the e-Golf, whose starting price tag in the States is 32 790 dollars. In addition, at this price it beat the Tesla Model 3 by about 13 thousand dollars, and the Model Y – 23 thousand dollars.

However, one should note that Scott Keogh, equating the future price of the cross to the cost of the Tiguan could have in mind is not the final cost, the model will hit the market, and some “bare” rate, which should be “add on” taxes and the cost of owning this electric car. In a similar way, by the way, Tesla cars are sold on the website is the actual price tag and cost savings.

Note, approximate price “rosette” cross Volkswagen in the case of taxes and cost of ownership will be about 36.8 thousand dollars. For comparison, the initial version of the Tesla Model 3 is almost 39 thousand dollars, and the Model Y – 48 thousand dollars.


Of course, all this still very rough calculations. Before the announcement of the present value of the future new crossover Volkswagen is still far away, because now it exists in the form of a disguised prototype, and even without official names. It is expected that the situation with prices will become clear closer to the presentation of the production version of the debut is likely to take place in spring 2020.

Electrocreaser, inspired by the concept of ID Crozz, will share a platform with the hatch ID.3, it is a “truck” MEB. Information about the power plant of the SUV yet. Presumably the “stuff” can get from the hatch ID.3 – 204-horsepower electric motor with a torque of 310 Nm. For the “piatigorski” three options are available battery with a capacity of 45, 58 and 77 kW*h power Reserve on a single charge is 330, 420 and 550 km (the calculation is conducted according to the WLTP cycle).
