Volkswagen’s ID.4 crossover has been spied on video, frolicking in the snow.
While the crossover is disguised as an Opel, the company released a couple of revealing images earlier this month.
They showed the ID.4 will have a rounded front fascia with a fully enclose grille that is flanked by slender headlights. The model will also have a rugged front bumper with plastic body cladding, a faux skid plate and prominent air intakes.
Moving further back, the crossover has streamlined bodywork and a flowing shoulder line. Other highlights include a sloping roof, a tailgate-mounted spoiler and three-dimensional taillights which are connected by a thin illuminated strip.
Volkswagen hasn’t said much about performance specifications, but the model will ride on the MEB platform and initially be launched with rear-wheel drive. An all-wheel drive variant will arrive later and it will be more powerful as it uses two electric motors.
The company has been coy on specifics, but they have previously confirmed the ID.4 will have a range of up to 311 miles (500 km) in the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure. Previous reports have also suggested rear-wheel drive variant will have 201 hp (150 kW / 204 PS) and 229 lb-ft (310 Nm) of torque, while all-wheel drive model boasts 302 hp (225 kW / 306 PS) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) of torque.
Unlike the ID.3, the ID.4 will be a global vehicle that is produced and sold in China, Europe and North America. A European launch is scheduled for later this year and North American production will begin in 2022.
