Volkswagen will launch a bigger seven-seater electrical crossover based mostly on the identical MEB platform because the just lately launched ID.4 and it’s going to be referred to as the ID.6. When it comes to its look, we don’t count on it to be too totally different from the ID.4, though you’ll be very simply be capable of inform them aside, as a result of the ID.6 has a for much longer wheelbase and totally different proportions in consequence.
Our spies just lately snapped what seems to be a fairly completed ID.6 prototype chilly climate testing. Many of the automobile is seen – there’s minimal camouflage on the physique – however the entrance fascia has been disguised to appear to be the entrance of a Peugeot 5008 individuals provider. Nonetheless, beneath the Peugeot masks, we are able to see this prototype has what seem like manufacturing lights.
The hind lights additionally seem like those we’ll see on the manufacturing model, however VW has utilized some camouflage to them, so we are able to’t see them of their entirety – there may even be a full mild bar hiding underneath the black camo utilized to the trim piece that hyperlinks the 2 rear mild clusters.
When it comes to specs, we consider the ID.6 will probably be similar to the ID.4, though with the prolonged wheelbase, it might theoretically accommodate a bigger battery pack. Base variations will probably be rear-wheel drive-only, whereas dearer ones will function a dual-motor all-wheel drive system.
The ID.6 will go face to face with the likes of the Tesla Mannequin X, and since it is going to most probably undercut it by way of worth (and nonetheless supply the identical variety of seats), it would upset the Tesla’s domination of the seven-seat electrical SUV/crossover market. Count on to see it debut someday in 2021.
