New all-electric Volkswagen ID.4 SUV will be based on the MEB platform and will follow the new ID.3 hatchback into showrooms
Our spy photographers have caught the all-electric Volkswagen ID.4 SUV wearing minimal camouflaged during its winter development programme. The German brand’s new MEB-based SUV will reach UK showrooms in summer 2021, where it will act as a rival to the Tesla Model Y, Hyundai Kona Electric and Kia e-Niro.
These latest spy shots give us our best indication yet of the new SUV’s styling. There are clear nods to the ID.3 in its design, with Volkswagen making a conscious effort to pen a coherent design language for its electric car line-up. As such, the ID.4 shares a similar rear lighting configuration and comparable silhouette to its hatchback sibling.
The Volkswagen ID.4 has adopted a more conventional look than its precursor, the ID. Crozz concept, which first appeared at the 2017 Shanghai Motor Show. The concept’s coupe-inspired rear liftback has been ditched in favour of a practical tailgate, while its missing B-pillars and wing mirrors have been reinstated.
Some of the concept’s design features have been retained, though. Volkswagen’s trademark “ID.” daytime running lights, LED headlights and blanked-off radiator grille feature relatively unchanged, as does the concept’s raked windscreen and rugged black plastic mouldings for the wheel arches and side skirts.
