ID 6: Volkswagen's electric SUV

Volkswagen presented its third electric vehicle based on the MEB platform. After ID.3 and ID.4, we are now seeing ID.6, the brand's largest electric vehicle so far.

With ID.6, the German manufacturer initially focused on the Chinese market and decided to bring an electric SUV to the market at the Shanghai Motor Show.

Ralf Brandstätter, CEO of the Volkswagen brand, commented on this finding: With the new ID.6, at least 50% of our Chinese cars will lay the foundation for electric cars by 2030.

He added: We maintain the momentum of growth and gradually expand the types of vehicles in the Middle East. By 2023, Volkswagen will have a total of 8 cars ID in China, and the economies of scale achieved allow us to offer them at affordable prices. The latest technology has expanded our electrical range.

The MEB platform is very flexible in terms of vehicle size as it can accommodate small sedans (such as ID.3) and large SUVs (such as ID.6).

The Volkswagen ID.6 is about 4.88 meters high and about 30 cm higher than the ID.

After release in China, Volkswagen has released the Chinese version of the specification for the electric SUV, which contains two batteries: ID.6 Crozz and ID.6X.

The company offers up to four ID.6 configurations, including three rows and seven seats.

The base model uses 58 kW batteries, while the primary 77 kW battery is optional, and the range of the two batteries ranges from 436 to 588 km.

The battery is located underneath the passenger compartment to ensure a low center of gravity.

The ID.6 has single or double electric motors, the two-wheel drive version goes from 0 to 100 km / h in 6.6 seconds, while the top speed is 160 km / h.

The car has no physical buttons or switches and has a 12-inch touchscreen display with Hello ID voice control function.

Other high-tech features include augmented reality displays and the Chinese Travel Assistance System, which regularly checks for air quality updates and traffic violations.

IQ.Drive assistance system makes driving more comfortable, and ID.6 software and hardware have an innovative architecture that customers can use to update their vehicle after purchase.

The Volkswagen ID.6 will start production at two factories in China this year.

The German automaker is currently focusing on the Chinese market with its new electric SUV, but the car is expected to enter other markets in the future.
