This Volkswagen ID .3 electric hatch for Europe kicks off the ID family of electric vehicles . The first ID models will arrive in the U . S . in 2020.

Volkswagen ' s first US - bound ID model is called the ID 4 and this is what it looks like. Like the ID 3, the ID 4 is based on the electric -only MEB architecture that Volkswagen has developed to carry it away from the stink of So, apart from its name and its platform, what do we know about ID 4 ?

As expected, it appears to be a production-ready version of the ID Crozz concept, and carries over many of its inspirational forebear's styling details, including its swooping shoulder line, militant mug, and wide rear haunches. Noticeably missing, however, is the Crozz's coupe-like roofline. Instead, the ID 4 embraces a more traditional (and surely more practical) wagon shape that ought to improve the crossover's overall cargo room. Who knows, given Volkswagen's recent addition of the Atlas Cross Sport, a coupe-ier version of the mainstream Atlas crossover, perhaps we'll see a more coupe-like ID 4 sibling in the future.

VW ID . 4 electric SUV shown wearing wild striped disguise. We've seen a parade of ID -badged EV concepts from Volkswagen as well as the first ID production model , the Golf-sized ID .3 hatchback, which debuted just a few weeks ago at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Whereas Volkswagen won't be shipping the ID 3 to the United States, the company actually built the ID 4 with America in mind (not to mention Europe and China, as well). As such, the battery-electric Crossover marks the first vehicle built on the modular MEB platform that Volkswagen will offer in the U.S. Designed specifically to underpin Volkswagen's electric vehicles, MEB includes a dedicated space for the battery directly below the passenger compartment. Due to this, the ID 4 benefits from a low center of gravity and relatively balanced weight distribution, and therefore shouldn't be horrible to drive.

While Volkswagen isn't talking detailed specifications for the ID 4 yet, the brand states that it expects certain ID 4 models to clear 310 miles of range on the notoriously optimistic Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure.

And on Thursday, VW gave us our best look yet at the model . While the announcement the photos came attached with didn't dole out any new details on the electric car, it' s the first time the company has placed the model directly in front of the camera.

When it arrives in Europe later this year, the ID 4 will at first feature just one drive motor at its rear axle. Nevertheless, a more powerful all-wheel-drive variant will join the ID 4 line not long after and is surely destined for the U.S. market. VW, of course, didn't share whether North American ID 4s will see a similar rear-drive, then all-wheel-drive roll-out, nor did it even mention a specific on-sale date for U.S.-bound models. That said, we expect the EV crossover to reach our shores by the end of the year.
