Volkswagen Electric Crossover "Painted" in Sky with Thousands of Drones

The German brand has effectively advertised the VW ID. 4.

Volkswagen has held a futuristic presentation of the ID.4 in China. Two thousand drones were launched into the night sky, creating an impressive synchronicity and scale light show.

In China, the ID. 4 will be available in two versions that differ in design and build location. The first drones “drew” the standard ID. 4, which borrowed the prefix Crozz from the concept of the same name in 2017. This crossover is being assembled at the FAW-Volkswagen joint venture.

Production of the ID. 4 X, developed specifically for the Chinese market, is set up at the SAIC-Volkswagen factory. It can be recognized by “sporty” bumpers, redesigned headlights and slightly increased dimensions: the ID. 4 X is 4,612 mm in length (in comparison with the Crozz’s 4, 592 mm) and 1,640 mm in height (the Crozz’s height is 1,629 mm). The wheelbase and width of the models are the same, as is the MEB platform.

There are also no differences in the technical part. The both “green” cars are driven by a 204-hp electric motor. At the start of sales, only the rear-wheel drive version will be available, and later it will be followed by the twin-engined AWD ID.4. The drive range, “according to the passport”, reaches 520 km.

The Cross and X will be the first Volkswagen ID models released in China. By 2023, the brand plans to bring 6 more electric vehicles of the family to the country.

At the end of October, the Euro NCAP tested the safety of the ID.3. The EV coped with all the tests and earned the maximum rating, namely five stars out of five possible.
