2026 Volkswagen ID 8 Price Design Spec and Performance


Although we haven’t seen any images of it yet, Volkswagen has confirmed that a three-row SUV will soon launch on its electric-car architecture. The family-friendly SUV will be called the 2026 Volkswagen ID 8 and we expect it to share styling with the slightly smaller ID.6 (shown above) which was unveiled for the Chinese market. The ID.8 will be much larger than the ID.4, putting it in contention with mid-size SUVs. It will have three rows of seats and will accommodate seven riders. Rear-wheel drive will likely be standard, but a dual-motor, all-wheel-drive system will likely be optional.

2026 Volkswagen ID.8

It’s currently unclear how big a battery Volkswagen will offer here, but buyers of the smaller ID.6 in China can opt for a 58.0- or 77.0-kWh pack, with the larger of the two offering up to 365 miles of driving range. . Given the popularity of the three-row crossover, it would be smart for VW to bring the ID.8 to market soon, but we don’t expect to see it until the 2026 model year.

What’s new for 2026?

The 2026 Volkswagen ID 8 is all-new and will be the largest of Volkswagen’s ID models on sale More information should be available closer to the on-sale date of the SUV.

Prices for the 2026 Volkswagen ID 8 are expected to start around $45,000 and go up to $55,000 depending on trim and options.

2026 Volkswagen ID 8 Exterior Design

The design basically follows the family-style design elements of Volkswagen’s current ID series. The front face is not the unique closed design of pure electric vehicles. It retains the air intake grille and uses a through-type headlight set. , the lamp group as a whole looks long, narrow and sharp, and is expected to have good recognition when lit.

The side adopts a suspended roof design with upper and lower layers. The door handles, like the current ID series, adopt a semi-hidden flip-up design, which takes into account the design sense and the practicality of traditional door handles. The lower surround of the car body is embellished with black decorative panels, and the design of the large petal-style wheels is also more eye-catching, which not only enhances the texture of the entire vehicle. But also looks very stable and majestic.

The rear of the car uses a through-type taillight set, and a large spoiler is added above the tailgate. The waistline is used as the dividing line, and the entire roof adopts a blackened design. According to overseas media, the new car may adopt a three-row, seven-seat layout, and the body length is expected to be close to 5 meters. As a reference, the length, width and height of the Xpeng G9 are 4891mm/1937mm/1680mm respectively, and the wheelbase is 2998mm. The new car is expected to have more ample cabin space than the Xpeng G9.

2026 Volkswagen ID 8 EV Motor, Power, and Performance

In terms of power, it is expected that the new car will be built based on the SSP platform, and single/dual motor models are planned to be launched for everyone to choose from. For reference, the Xpeng G9 has a maximum power of 405kW and a peak torque of 717N·m. Automobile Culture believes that the cooperation between Volkswagen and Xpeng may not help Xpeng become a “Dapeng”, nor can it save Volkswagen’s decline in the new energy field. Although it has boosted the stock price, it cannot be called a strong alliance. , in a market surrounded by wolves, it is obviously unrealistic for Volkswagen/Xpeng’s first SUV to kill its opponents.

2026 Volkswagen ID 8 Range, charging and battery life

In China, the ID.6 will be available with either a 58.0- or 77.0-kWh battery pack, with the latter providing a driving range of up to 365 miles per charge. The ID.8 that will make it to America will be slightly larger than the ID.6 but may use the same battery pack. Fast-charging technology will undoubtedly be ideal, as it is in the small ID.4.

Three rows of seats put the ID.8 in contention with the more expensive Tesla Model X and Rivian R1S as a family-friendly SUV with an all-electric powertrain. All models will likely come with a panoramic glass roof and offer a large 12.0-inch infotainment touchscreen for most of the vehicle’s controls.
