After a huge success of ID 3 compact electric car in America. The automobile giant Volkswagen is all set to launch the ID 4 compact crossover SUV which seems to be larger than the earlier one.

However, initially, the design seems to be inspired by the ID crozz concept and carries many of its forebear concepts like swooping shoulder line and the militant mug.

The crossover has a more traditional wagon shape which will give more room for cargo. But this is not sure as we may see many coupes like ID 4  in the future. Volkswagen decided to make ID 4 by keeping the Americans in the mind (to be mentioned not Europe and China).

Due to these facts, the crossover electrically enabled SUV is the first vehicle to be built on the MEB platform. The MEB platform will be offered by Volkswagen for the electric division of the company.

There will be a space for the battery below the passenger’s compartment. This feature of the new SUV has caused it to have a low center of gravity and balanced weight distribution. The ID 4 is the first vehicle to have a motor in the rear axle. But when ID 4 will be launched in the US market then it will surely be powered by a more powerful all-wheel variant.
