Volkswagen’s new ID.6 family SUV could be a hit in Australia, as we find out with a drive in Shanghai

The all-new battery-electric Volkswagen ID.6 takes the ID.4 formula and stretches it to a six- and seven-seat family SUV. Unveiled earlier this year as a China-only model, the ID.6 is set to roll out to other markets from 2022 onwards, and is a prospect for launch Down Under as Volkswagen Australia works on its long-awaited EV rollout that’s still to kick off. To date, large electric SUVs have been the domain of luxury brands, so the ID.6 could hand VW a unique proposition among the mainstream players, where hybrids are available – but no EVs as yet. So come with us on a drive in Shanghai to see whether the Volkswagen ID.6 is worth waiting (or lobbying) for.

The range-topping 2021 Volkswagen ID.6 X Prime on test here tips the scales at the Australian equivalent of $74,000 in China (RMB335,888), and would be the prime candidate for sale Down Under from a range that starts at an incredibly reasonable $53,000 (RMB239,888) in the Chinese market.
