Watch the 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 reveal live, right here

Watch the 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 reveal live, right here”

No more design sketches and teaser photos.

Volkswagen electric vehicles still qualify owners for a $7,500 federal EV tax credit and potential savings that vary by state.

In contrast to the ID.3, the ID.4 is intended for a global market, built first in Germany, then in China and later in the US. We won't be seeing it here for a while though.

From looking at it the new ID.4 is nothing that revolutionary - it's about the size and form of the Tiguan, and it hews fairly closely to the ID. With fast-charging, the ID.4 gets to 80 percent full in under 40 minutes. It is installed below the passenger compartment which guarantees a low centre of gravity.

But since the ID.4 doesn't have an engine and has fewer mechanicals, Volkswagen was able to maximize the available cargo and cabin space. A smaller, cheaper version will follow.

The electric drive motor, positioned at the rear axle, generates 150kW - enough to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.5 seconds and deliver a top speed of 160 km/h.

Volkswagen has revealed its first purpose-built electric vehicle for the United States.

While in the USA the model gets three years of free charging thanks to Electrify America, in Europe the ID.4 has access to the We Charge solution, reaching up to 125 kW at a DC fast-charge station. More details on that model, including driving range and acceleration, are expected to be revealed in the coming months - although we can likely expect its specifications to mirror the Skoda Enyaq.

Volkswagen ID.4
The interior lacks any real physical buttons

The Pure version will have a 52kWh battery and 125kW motor. VW says the ID.4 can be had with LED Matrix lights with 3D-effect rear lights as an option (pictured on the yellow car). "Volkswagen is thus once again demonstrating its leading role in innovation, technology and quality on the high-volume market".

The interior is much the same as that in the ID.3, albeit more spacious.

The auto has a 250-mile range on a single charge.

The ID.4 is built on Volkswagen's EV-specific MEB platform and measures 4.58 metres long, positioning it between the regular Tiguan (4486mm) and the stretched seven-seat Tiguan Allspace (4701mm). Once the ID.4 starts production in VW's Chattanooga, Tenn., vehicle plant in 2022 the price will drop to $35,000. There aren't many physical buttons, as functionality is nearly completely controlled by touch or voice control (the latter is a standard feature, and called Hello ID.).

An augmented-reality head-up display is on the options list - something VW managed to get out of the door before Mercedes did with the new S-Class - and the connected infotainment system has real-time traffic data, live updates on the state of nearby chargers and the ability to pre-condition your vehicle via a phone app.

The ID.4 has a remarkably low drag coefficent thanks to its sleek design.

In terms of size, the ID.4 is 4.6 inches (117 mm) shorter than the Tiguan, at 180.5 (4,585 mm) in, with a 0.9 in (23 mm) shorter wheelbase at 108.9 in (2,766 mm).
