VW's New Electric Off-Roader ID Xtreme
Fun New Concept from Volkswagen
Volkswagen has unveiled a powerful, fun, new electric off-roader, called the ID Xtreme. It's a concept car that packs 382 hp and is all-electric with zero emissions, on and off-road driving. The EV is based on the new 2023 ID 4. But the Xtreme contains factory upgrades, new technologies and accessories to make it ready for Xtreme off-roading.
The Xtreme has all-wheel drive and software modifications to achieve 382 hp. The EV has rally, off-road 18-inch wheels and sits much higher above the ground than the ID 4 to traverse rugged terrain. The Xtreme has huge, wide, front fenders, a crash bar and a modified front bumper to give it a rugged, road-less-traveled look and feel. There is extra off-roading protection with a full aluminum underbody cover. There's also a LED lighting bar on the roof. VW has also added a sound generator in the wheels to enhance the sound of off-roading. VW says the Xtreme "was made by enthusiasts at VW for ID enthusiasts". It sounds like VW is really into this off-roader. Automotive experts are waiting to see if VW will put the Xtreme into production.
