Volkswagen shared Tuesday more information and images of a small electric SUV that the automaker announced will be called the ID.4.

Why it matters, via Car and Driver: "The electric crossover will be the first vehicle on VW's MEB electric platform to make its way to the United States and will initially launch in Europe later in 2020."

The big picture: CNET reports,"So, apart from its name and its platform, what do we know about ID 4?"

  • "Well, VW claims that it's got an especially slippery shape, which will help it to eke out a claimed range of up to 310 miles (though that range is likely to drop significantly once we get EPA range estimates) and we know it'll be out later this year."
