VW’s Fifth All-Electric ID Model Might Be A Touareg-Sized SUV

VW is reportedly going to reveal the fifth member of its electric ID family in April, at the Shanghai Motor Show. The latest addition in the ID range should be a luxury SUV similar in size to the current Touareg.

The new model, which according to Autocar is internally named the ID Lounge, will be based on the largest version of VW’s MEB platform. The ID Lounge will feature a 3,300mm wheelbase and seven seats and will be positioned against models like the Tesla Model X once it arrives in the market in 2021.

The ID Lounge’s electric powertrain will be similar to that of the ID Buzz, with which it will share the same version of the MEB architecture. This will include two electric motors, one on each wheel, with a combined output of 369hp (374PS).

The battery pack is expected to have a 111kWh capacity, making the ID Lounge capable of travelling 372 miles (600km) on a full charge.

The ID Lounge is one of the three electric SUVs scheduled for launch by the end of 2022. The other two will be a pair of models based on the ID Crozz, with one to adopt a more coupe-like styling and the other offering more practicality.

VW’s first ID model will be the production version of the ID Hatchback, set to arrive in 2020 with a 168hp (170PS) electric motor and a 0-62mph (100km/h) in less than 8 seconds.
