“Combining the strengths of a modern SUV with the sense of adventure embodied by a rugged off-road vehicle”, Volkswagen has unveiled the ID. XTREME, an off-road concept that “stands for the maximum emotion and desire for adventure”. 

XTREME

“The modular electric drive matrix (MEB) has enormous technical potential,” said Silke Bagschik, head of the MEB Product Line. For many of our customers, vehicles are much more than just a means of transport. With the ID. XTREME, we are raising electric mobility from VW to a new performance level.” Based on the ID.4 GTX, the ID. XTREME produces 285 kW, 65 kW more than the German marque’s performance-focused all-electric crossover. 

In addition, as this is an all-terrain EV, the ID. XTREME off-road concept features raised rally running gear, 18-inch off-road wheels and a modified crash member with an additional front bumper. The underbody is completely closed off with aluminium. The roof carrier is fitted with LED lights.

The Wolfsburg-based company says, acoustically, the ID.4 XTREME has something “special” to offer. The EV’s driving noise was specially developed in collaboration with VW Design. A sound generator relays noise to the outside. 

Inside, the concept off-roader features “revamped” seats. Alcantara trim and orange accents are also present.
