When will the Volkswagen ID.4 be revealed to the public? 

Volkswagen has been teasing us by releasing small drips of information about its coming lineup of electric vehicles. It was confirmed a few months ago that an electric version of the world-famous Type 2 microbus will go on sale in 2022. However, the first of the automaker’s new electric crossover SUVs, the VW ID.4, will likely arrive before that. So, when will the Volkswagen ID.4 be revealed to the public? According to another more recent information drip from the manufacturer, we have learned that VW will officially show the ID.4 to the world on Oct. 13. To go along with that bit of interesting news, Volkswagen has also put out a couple of new photos and released a few details about the EV that our team is excited to share with you. Let’s take a closer look.

The interior of the Volkswagen ID.4 is designed to be modern and spacious. As you can tell by the photos below, owners will be able to take advantage of the latest technology without being overwhelmed by a cluttered passenger cabin. A digital screen appears to be replacing the analog digital gauge cluster and a large touchscreen sits on top of the dashboard above what would normally the center stack of accessories – like the climate controls.  

Customizable ambient lighting technology has become a trademark of Volkswagen vehicles. People will be able to choose from 30 different ambient light colors inside the coming VW ID.4. Additionally, VW engineers have integrated these LEDs into some of the vehicle’s systems to let the driver know when they have been activated or are otherwise working.

“We’re excited to share the first glimpse of the newest member of the Volkswagen family,” Scott Keogh, president and CEO of Volkswagen Group of America, said in a press release. “Great things come in small packages, as Volkswagen has proven throughout the years with its iconic Beetle, Golf and Jetta. This next car will be no exception.” 

We don’t really know much about the dimensions of the Volkswagen ID.4. However, we do know that it will have two rows of seats and can hold up to five passengers. Volkswagen has also let it be known that the ID.4 will have 30.3 cubic-feet of cargo volume behind the second row when it’s being used by passengers.
