These VW ID CROZZ prototypes are caught testing in the Alps. The test vehicles you see here show off more of the production body work than previously seen.

Volkswagen recently unveiled the new ID 3 hatchback at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, but unlike the ID 3 this all-electric crossover is destined for sale in the United States.

The naming convention is likely to switch as well. The VW ID CROZZ concept should be name VW ID.4 for the production model.


The latest information suggests that the ID.4 with offer all-wheel-drive from a rear 150 kW electric motor and an additional 75 kW motor up front. The total power is close to 225 kW (or approximately 305 HP). Total battery capacity is pegged at 77 kWh capacity.

Volkswagen also teased an upcoming electric crossover/SUV at the Frankfurt show with the ID CROZZ concept. The concept is wearing a much more coupe-like shape. The production car appears to be a little more SUV-like with a rear section that offers some SUV utility.

The front grille and headlight design on the prototypes appear to be very similar to what we have seen from the prototypes.

We may see the VW ID.4 crossover for sale in the United States in 2022 (or potentially sometime in 2021 as a 2022 model).

Speaking of Volkswagens that we cannot currently buy, here is our road trip in a VW California camper van.
