Volkswagen’s electric powered SUVs could be identified as ID X in the future, as the company appears to be to make certain its model line-up is very easily understood in markets close to the planet. For illustration, the upcoming compact SUV version of the Volkswagen ID 3 would be called ID 3 X, underneath the plans.
VW boss Thomas Schafer explained the maker was evaluating a amount of avenues but on making use of X for SUV styles, he commented: “It’s one particular option and not an unlikely choice that the SUV part is an X but it’s not 100%. It has to be steady throughout the array and since our vary is continue to rather massive and overlapping below and there, we have to have to type it out. But it appears to be as if it would make feeling with the numbering and X.”
Schafer explained the organization was pondering how to use well-founded names these as Volkswagen Golf and Volkswagen Polo in the future wherever combustion-engined types are being phased out.
“The Golf identify specifically has massive benefit. But at the exact time, the ID manufacturer has obtained huge momentum. The recognition it receives at [customer] clinics, people today completely realize what we are conversing about. So to transform the identify to anything wholly various does not make sense.
“We are genuinely working out now for the up coming ten years how we see the names creating. This is going on suitable now, this course of action of what we do with the identify – Golfing, Polo or what ever – what do we do to transform vital names differently.”
At this time, Volkswagen has two electric powered ID SUVs on sale in Europe, the Volkswagen ID 4 and Volkswagen ID 5, whilst the ID 6 is on sale in China. The arrival of an ID 3 compact SUV to sit together with the hatchback, mooted by 2025, could be the first example of the new nomenclature if it receives the eco-friendly mild.
