New Volkswagen ID. XTREME concept car highlights 3D printed parts for an authentic off-road look

The fully electric concept car with all-wheel drive system is based on the ID.4 GTX and combines the strengths of a modern SUV with the sense of adventure embodied by a rugged off-road vehicle.

Based on the performance-enhanced ID.4 GTX, and designed to deliver the performance potential and versatility of the modular electric drive matrix, the ID. XTREME concept car is an all-electric off-road vehicle with all-wheel drive.

For many of our customers, vehicles are much more than just a means of transport. With the ID. XTREME, we are raising electric mobility from VW to a new performance level”, says Silke Bagschik, Head of the MEB Product Line.

If the concept car raises our interest, that’s because its manufacturing required the use of AM. As observed in most luxurious cars, the car manufacturer relies on 3D printing for aesthetic purpose.

 Raised rally running gear, 18-inch off-road wheels, a modified crash member with additional front bumper, and 50 mm-wider wings manufactured by 3D printing combine to give the concept vehicle an authentic off-road look. The roof carrier with additional LED lights and the completely closed aluminium underbody also equip the fully electric all-wheel drive vehicle for excursions away from paved roads.

Last but not least, at the acoustic level, the ID. XTREME has something special to offer: the driving noise was developed together with Volkswagen Design especially for the concept vehicle and is output to the outside via a sound generator in the wheel housing. In the interior, the concept car impresses with various highlights, including numerous microfiber fabric applications, revamped seats and elements in the accent colour orange. And it goes without saying that the ID. XTREME is sustainable: a no longer required test vehicle from production development and a used 82 kWh battery were taken as the basis for the concept vehicle.
