Volkswagen will imminently bare its new ID 4 electric SUV, and we’ve already apparent the ID flagship that will chase it, in the anatomy of a prototype testing about undisguised.
First previewed with the affected ID Roomzz abstraction at aftermost year’s Shanghai motor show, Volkswagen’s better electric agent (EV) – acceptable alleged the ID 6 – will action seven seats and abode an accent on spaciousness.
The abstraction had added amplitude central than the Touareg, Volkswagen’s better European model. Sales and business bang-up Jürgen Stackmann said at its unveiling: “Key markets for this car are China and North America. These two countries adulation space.”
“I wouldn’t account that the ID Roomzz will be a amount archetypal [for Europe],” he added, but it’s nonetheless due to go on auction actuality abutting year alongside the ID 3 hatchback, ID 4 crossover and ID 5 estate.
The ID 6 will be the better archetypal to sit aloft the Volkswagen Group’s MEB EV platform until the assembly adaptation of the ID Buzz van arrives in 2022. It can be accepted to backpack about 302bhp and 331lb ft from a dual-motor powertrain alms part-time four-wheel drive in its accepted form.

The ancestor in these new images appears abundantly production-ready. Despite Volkswagen’s attack to affectation its origins with Peugeot-esque advanced grille and rear ablaze decals, we can see acutely that the ID flagship will buck a able affinity to the abate ID 4.
The concept’s sliding doors don’t attending to accept fabricated it through to the assembly car, accustomed the prototype’s commonly placed handles, and nor do the camera-based basic addition mirrors. It’s possible, though, that the closing could be accessible on high-end variants, accustomed that Volkswagen affinity cast Audi already offers them on its E-tron.
