They've shown a microbus and a dune buggy on the MEB platform.

I doubt it would raise the floor height more than Chrysler's Stow n Go seating.

ID.4X aka ID Crozz

We are seeing the next vehicle that uses the MEB platform - the ID.4X aka the ID Crozz:

https://insideevs.com/news/362808/vo...rozz-spy-camo/

https://insideevs.com/news/366227/sp...id-crozz-id4x/

It was out driving along side 2 different ID.3 test vehicles:
https://insideevs.com/news/366169/vo...seen-together/

The ID.4X seems to be the AWD variant of the ID.4, and it is slightly smaller than the US Tiguan. It is longer and taller than the ID.3, which is slightly taller than the Golf, and a tiny bit shorter length than the Golf.




ID.4X:


ID.3:

When are you getting one Neil? You should start your own EV review channel. I'd watch yours before the other guys.

Liquid cooling/heating for the battery, or what?

$30k for 44 kWh sounds about right. That would be ~$20k after subsidies where I live.

I wish I could buy one - and maybe they will bring it to the US at some point.

Questions:

Does it have a direct heating windshield defroster? If so, is it using a very thin (molecule?) layer of silver inside the glass? How much energy does it consume?
Is the steering wheel heated? As an option, or standard?
Does it have a heat pump? If so, is it using the motor and electronics?
Is there a light inside the charging port? Does the plug lock all the time, or are there options on how / when it locks?
What are the quick charging speeds, for the 3 battery pack capacities?
Are all the lights LED's? Do the headlights adjust for level?
Does it coast by default (I hope)? What regen modes does it have?
Does it have adaptive creep?
Does it adjust the passenger side mirror in tandem with the driver side mirror?
Are the front seats height adjustable?
Are the front and /or rear seats heated?
What is the audio system - how many speaker drivers, and what inputs does it have? How does it sound?
What is the turning circle diameter? What are the wheel and tire sizes?
Can it have a hitch? What is it rated for?

Sounds like you've been thinking about it.

I like the icons on the brake and throttle pedals.
