Volkswagen Unveils ID.4 as First Electric Vehicle for India

22 Mar 2024 , 01:23 PM

Volkswagen has unveiled its first electric vehicle (EV) for the Indian market, the Volkswagen ID.4, set to launch in the fourth quarter of 2024. The Volkswagen ID.4 will be introduced as a completely built-up (CBU) model initially, featuring a single configuration for the Indian market.

Internationally, the Volkswagen ID.4 offers various powertrain options, including single-motor rear-wheel-drive and dual-motor all-wheel-drive variants, boasting a claimed range of up to 480km on a single charge.

Volkswagen aims to capitalize on the 5-7% growth projected for the Indian passenger vehicles market this year, targeting 10-15% growth for itself.

Michael Mayer, Executive Director of Sales International Operations, Volkswagen Passenger Cars, highlighted the ID.4 as the company's first step in India's electrification journey, aligning with global efforts towards mass electrification.

Apart from internal combustion engine (ICE) models like the Virtus, Taigun, and Tiguan currently available in India, Volkswagen is leading in global electrification initiatives, supporting the Paris Climate Agreement 2030 goals through various measures such as charging infrastructure development, battery recycling, and digitalization.

Volkswagen plans to introduce a range of electric vehicles globally, including models like ID.2 and ID. Buzz, with ID.4 being one of the brand's popular offerings worldwide.

Despite the phased approach to market expansion, Volkswagen remains committed to India, a key market witnessing substantial growth potential.

Volkswagen Passenger Cars India aims for a 10-15% increase in sales in 2024, focusing on enhancing its presence across Tier II and Tier III cities through network expansion initiatives.
