As the Volkswagen ID Crozz concept has evolved over time, we’ve gotten a better idea of how the company’s first dedicated EV (e-Golf being a variant of an internal-combustion vehicle) for the U.S. market is shaping up. In short, these new spy shots answer that question thusly: shapely!

The ID.4, as we have called it in recent spy shots, is seen here with far less camouflage than we’ve seen in the past. Despite some flourishes that make it look a bit like an Opel, the overall effect is extremely attractive. While it’s subjective, what we’re seeing here is perhaps the best-looking of the ID variants, concept or no … although the ID Space Vizzion may edge it out.

Size-wize, our spy shooter says it slots in between the Tiguan and the long-wheelbase Tiguan Allspace, but with an extended wheelbase thanks to the more space-efficient powertrain packaging. Like all ID variants, it’ll use a version of Volkswagen’s MEB electric architecture. The concept version, the ID Crozz (below right), featured a dual-motor setup and a projected 250-mile max range from an 83-kWh battery. Those specs seem appropriate for a production version, although things may change between now and then.
Can someone post pix?

I think this looks great!
If they can keep the price close to the ID.3, I don't think too many Americans/Canadians will miss the ID.3.
It feels more like a Subaru Outback (on the more wagon end of the CUV world) rather than a taller small CUV like the Tiguan.

It's "fine", but not exciting. Perhaps that's okay, but perhaps people who buy electric cars still want everyone to know it. We'll see.

The Microbus concept thingy will probably fare better here in the U.S., as it's a very compelling vehicle to many, including my wife who normally doesn't care too much about that kind of thing.

My wife will be at the dealership as soon as those microbuses rolled off the truck. The last thing we want is another fake SUV but the utility of an electric van would be great.

Remember when the Durango went from a decent, rugged looking SUV to that awful Blowfish design in 2004?

I get a similar vibe here, like they took a Golf Sportwagen and overinflated it, but at least the outcome is fairly pleasing.

So in terms of size/capability, this is roughly equivalent to the Tiguan or CX-5?
