Volkswagen brings more and more children to the automobile world from his electric family. After the ID.3 As an electrical alternative to the Golf, Europeans should inspire – although Teslas Model 3 became the best -selling Stromer in Europe in September – followed with the larger ID.4 and its following coupe variant ID.5 of the world citizens ID.6.
VW prefers China
Before with the ID. Buzz from 2023 the Americans are to cheer, the focus is on the largest Wolfsburg market market: China. Here it can and must be one size larger for electric cars and that should be the new ID.6 judge. Strictly speaking there is the VW ID.6 in double execution, because it is produced in parallel with the two VW cooperation partners FAW and SAIC.

Technically, both models are largely identical on the modular electric kit MEB, but there are slight optical differences on the front and rear. The two China brothers offer space for up to seven people over a length of 4.88 meters, since in contrast to ID.4 and ID.5 thanks to the increase in length of 30 centimeters, there are three rows of seats.

At the wheel you can hardly feel a difference to the smaller VW ID.4. There is almost 150 kilograms more weight, but even the length of length and the wheelbase extended to 2.97 meters make hardly any significant difference in terms of driving dynamics. The low center of gravity and direct steering remains pleasant, although the electrical steering unchanged unchanged and the feedback is completely different than with the combustion models. However, you can get used to this quickly and the support is always precise enough. This also applies to the beginning of the front axle, which is similar to the VW ID.4 presented and represented completely differently than with a VW Tiguan Allspace or even a VW Touareg, at the door of which the almost 4.90 meter long electrical crossover knocks out of Chinese production.

In China, real leather seats are still in demand
The standard equipment of the new VW ID.6 is also very similar to that of the small ID.4 and his coupe brother ID.5. There are animated instruments with an excessive display unit along with lavish head-up display with augmented reality function behind the steering wheel. The twelve -inch, large central display in the middle of the dashboard presents itself large -dimensioned and easy to use. Since the demand for luxury equipment in China is greater than in Europe, there are two ID.6 variants, unlike on the European market, also with electric leather seats and not just chairs with fabric or plastic. The second row of seats, also heated on request, can be moved in length and on request the standard panorama roof can also be obtained with an opening function. The VW ID.6 rolls on 19 to 21 inch aluminum wheels.

With his ID family, Volkswagen wants to ensure that at least half of the new vehicles will be powered by 2030. By 2023, eight ID family should come onto the market in China. However, there should be little doubt that the VW ID.6 also makes the leap to Europe and especially in the USA, because the Americans are the ID.4 too small and in Europe you need more models for your own electrical specifications than previously planned. At first there should be no decentralized production and so the VW ID would.6 Probably as well as the BMW IX3 exported to the world from China.
