Adding to the series of its all electric ID models, Volkswagen recently unveiled its latest off-road electric SUV, ID XTREME. The bold design aspects in the model are the first of its kind from the automaker. Based on the VW’s ID.4 GTX model, the company has made necessary software upgrades along with high-performance drive on the rear axle giving the concept car an additional output of 65kW taking the overall output to 285kW which is a significant jump of nearly 30% from the ID.4 GTX model.
Silke Bagschik, Head of the Modular electric drive matrix (MEB) Product Line in a recent press release from the company said, “For many of our customers, vehicles are much more than just a means of transport. With the ID. XTREME, we are raising electric mobility from VW to a new performance level.” He further adds, “The ID. XTREME is made by enthusiasts at Volkswagen for ID. enthusiasts here in Locarno. We are really eager to find out how the fans of electromobility react to the vehicle. Based on the feedback from our community, we will decide how to proceed with the project."
The company has only teased a few specs of the concept car majorly boasting about its exteriors and a few details regarding its two motors and their enhanced output. Making the car well capable for all sorts of off-road adventures, the car comes with a higher ground clearance, an elevated rally running gear with large 18-inch off-road wheels. Apart from these features, the car has 3D printed, 50mm wide wings making the car look more extreme. Adding to the bold look of the car, the roof carrier houses additional LED lights enclosed in an aluminium underbody. With some brief details about the car’s interiors, the company highlights that the internal system is capable of running numerous Alcantara applications and has modernised seats with subtle aesthetics of colour orange.
With its latest lineup of EVs and such upcoming models the German automaker is eyeing to become the leading electric car maker across the globe by creating a product differentiation targeting multidimensional commuters.
