The Vision iV production will also be sold with a selection of three battery packs and two engine configurations. This is in line with other VW Group electric cars being built at MEB, such as Volkswagens next identification hatch.
The 49, 60 and 82kWh battery packs will be introduced throughout the life of the vehicle, with the largest battery offering a range of 300 WLTP miles. The model will be launched with the 49kWh battery and another, but has not yet been decided.
As standard, the Vision iV will be single-engine rear-wheel drive, but higher specification models will be offered with a front-mounted engine that provides all-wheel drive.
Maier says the two-engine version is “more agile” than the single-engine model. To keep costs down, the Vision iV will not have a reduction gearbox, which could increase maximum speed. “Thats why we limit it to 112 mph. Not having a separate gearbox will be very good for the cost of the vehicle,” Maier said.
