It seems that the carmaker VW has prepared another series of electric vehicles, which it presented before its official release, giving an idea of what its new cars include.
In accordance with Autoblog, the popular vehicle manufacturer, has unveiled the electric SUV ID.6, before its debut at the Shanghai Auto Show on April 21. The seven-seater EV will be larger than the ID.4 and will be available in two variants: The ID. 6 X and ID.6 Crozz. However, the images show that it will not be as fancy as the 2019 Roomzz concept. VW seems to have removed the sliding doors and replaced them with conventional ones.
According to the specifications revealed by MIIT, the new VW ID.6 has a single electric motor with a nominal power of 201 hp, thus essentially copying the ID.4 and ID.3 before it. Being much larger than the other models, the SUV extends up to 4.8 meters, with a large wheelbase, measuring 2.9 meters. The MIIT document also unveiled an 82 kWh lithium-ion battery and we also expect a dual-engine variant with four-wheel drive and just over 300 hp.
The company has made it clear that the ID.6 X and Crozz are intended for the Chinese market. However, consumers from other countries who want these new larger models should not be disappointed. As VW previously stated in Automotive News, it is possible that an ID.6 model will reach USA. This would not be a surprise. The US car market loves SUVs and the ID.4 can only satisfy the preferences of a compact crossover. More spacious vehicles like the ID.6 could reach many more buyers.
