It should be able to do a little off-road and tow.

In its new video teaser "Superior Power," Volkswagen presents a camouflaged prototype of the ID.4 in action.

It was shown during several off-road tests and when towing to prove its SUV-capabilities.

The light off-road capability and towing is always a welcome feature, although we must note that initially, the manufacturer will offer only the rear-wheel-drive version. The all-wheel-drive version is expected to follow in near future.

Volkswagen ID.4 brief specs:

  • over 500 km (311 miles) of WLTP range in top version
  • drag coefficient of 0.28
  • rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive (later)
  • based on MEB platform
