Just as Volkswagen is just making its first deliveries of the ID.3 1st Edition electric vehicle, the German car maker has premiered another electric vehicle: the ID.4, a fully electrically driven SUV that the VW dub marque said goes beyond zero emissions; it is produced with so-called “a carbon-neutral balance.”

Volkswagen ID.4 Electric Sport Utility Vehicle

VW ID.4 is a gorgeous ride powered by an electric drivetrain that puts out 150 kW (204 PS/204 HP) of power and promised a range of up to 520 kilometers (323 miles) from its 77 kWh battery system. The ID.4 can be recharged with DC to cover the next 320 kilometers at a DC quick-charging station in about 30 minutes.

Power from the electric motor, which is positioned at the rear axle, is put to good use at the rear wheels. Performance-wise, the ID.4 is obviously not going to make land speed record. However, it is fairly quick, making the century sprint (0-62 mph) in 8.5 seconds and has a top speed of 160 km/h (99 mph).

The electric vehicle further boasts an aerodynamic with a 0.28 drag coefficient, LED head and taillights (interactive IQ.Light LED matrix headlights on the range-topper), 21-inch wheels, 543-1,575 liters of cargo space, optional augmented reality head-up display, two displays – including one 12-inch touch display, ID.Light under the windscreen to guide driver without distraction, and more.

There are three trim levels available: a Germany-only ID.4 Pro Performance that starts at €44,450 (equivalent to US$51,861), and the ID.4 1ST and ID.4 1ST Max that sells for €49,950 and €59,950 (about US$58,289 and US$96,204), respectively.

In addition, there is an entry-level model set to be added to the lineup in 2021. ID.4 Pure, which offers a modest range of just 340 kilometers (211 miles), will price at “under €37,000.” It is, however, not available to order yet.

Pre-sale for the new Volkswagen ID.4 Electric Sport Utility Vehicle (except for the Pure) has been launched in Germany and select EU countries.
