Volkswagen’s ID.6 has been revealed by China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.
Looking instantly recognizable, the ID.6 follows in the footsteps of the ID.4 but adopts larger headlights and a revised front fascia with a faux intake.
The familiar design continues further back, but the ID.6 features a flatter beltline and a larger greenhouse with new rear quarter glass. The model also sports plastic body cladding, a gently sloping roof and flush-mounted door handles.
The rear end is familiar as well as there are slender taillights and a tailgate-mounted spoiler. However, the lower half is unique as the model has horizontal reflectors and a revised bumper with a faux skid plate.
According to documents accompanying the photos, the ID.6 measures 192 inches (4876 mm) long and has a wheelbase that spans 116.7 inches (2965 mm). This makes the crossover 11.5 inches (292 mm) longer than the ID.4 with a wheelbase that has been stretched 7.8 inches (198 mm). Thanks to the extra room, the ID.6 will be a family friendly seven-seater.
The documents also reveal the model will come equipped with an electric motor that develops 201 hp (150 kW / 204 PS). This isn’t terribly surprising as the ID.4 also uses the same rear motor. However, we can also expect an all-wheel drive variant that has two electric motors and a combined output of 302 hp (225 kW / 306 PS).
There’s no word on battery capacity, but the ID.4 has an 82 kWh battery pack that enables the model to have an EPA-estimated range of 250 miles (402 km).
Volkswagen is expected to introduce the ID.6 later this year, so expect to learn more in the coming months.
