What We Know So Far About This Vehicle and Where to Find New Cars for Sale in Kansas City

It’s safe to say that by now you’ve at least heard the name Volkswagen ID.4. To give you a quick refresher, this is our game-changing all-electric SUV that was named the World Car of the Year in 2021. It was also recently awarded one of Wards Best User Experiences.

Yielding up to 275 miles on a single charge (Pro model), the Volkswagen ID.4 has convinced many longtime holdouts to finally consider switching over to an electric vehicle. The fact that gas prices are much higher than they were a year ago is also helping things out on that front. The VW ID.4 also provides drivers with up to 295 horsepower and up to 339 lb-ft. of torque, disproving the rumor that electric vehicles lack performance.

Considering those factors and how the VW ID.4 delivers future-forward design, an amazing suite of features, and a fun and nimble driving style, there’s never been a better time to make the switch over to electric.

We also can’t forget to mention that this is one of the most affordable new cars for sale in Kansas City, especially in the EV category. With a starting MSRP of $41,230 (as low as $33,730 after potential federal tax credit), there is finally an affordable way to graduate to an electric vehicle.

With the Volkswagen ID.4 being such a big hit, it has many drivers and reviewers wanting to know what’s next for the VW name in terms of electric vehicles. Well, it might actually be a vehicle you’re already familiar with – the VW Tiguan.

Is the VW Tiguan REALLY Going Electric? Or is That Just a Rumor?

Reporting on rumored vehicles is interesting business because you never really know for sure if the vehicle will go into production. Throughout its history, VW has had several vehicles that made it to the concept phase only to be canceled later. That’s just part of the business. Some cars make it. Some don’t.

Keeping that in mind, we are hearing news and seeing photographic proof regarding an electric version of the VW Tiguan that leads us to believe this vehicle may go into production. Spy photographers have captured images of a VW Tiguan with no tailpipes and a closed-off front grill that is being tested in multiple parts of the world. At the very least, this VW Tiguan may potentially be a hybrid, but is very likely a full-fledged electric.

It’s also worth noting that conceptualizing, designing, and engineering a brand-new all-electric vehicle is a much more expensive endeavor compared to taking a current vehicle from gas-powered to electric. Putting an all-electric version of the Tiguan into production would be smart from a cost perspective.

So, could the VW Tiguan be one of the new cars for sale in Kansas City within the next few years? Considering the success of the last Volkswagen electric car for sale, it certainly seems like it.

Upcoming EV concepts such as the VW ID. Buzz, the VW ID. AERO, and the VW ID. LIFE appear to be on their way to a rollout, but we won’t know for sure until they are officially slated with a release day by the higher-ups over at the Volkswagen Group. The same can be said for the VW Tiguan concept we’ve been seeing around.
