Powering the BEV will be a ternary-lithium battery pack, which is set to be offered in two versions based on battery capacity. Specifically, the 55kWh battery supports a range of 350km, while the 83kWh enables a range up to 480km.

Moreover, the A SUVe is said to provide four-wheel-drive system.

Lounge SUVe

The Lounge SUVe is in all likelihood the ID.ROOMZZ, which was unveiled at the 2019 Auto Shanghai, a local media outlet speculated. The 5-meter-plus-long BEV model is expected to be mass produced as early as 2021, setting models like Tesla's Model X as rivals.

Two electric motors can continuously drive both axles with a system output of 225 KW / 306 PS (electric 4MOTION). The ID. ROOMZZ can accelerate to 100 km/h in 6.6 seconds and reach top speeds of up to 180 km/h (electronically regulated), according to Volkswagen Group.
