Rumor | Electric Volkswagen Tiguan planned for 2026, won't adopt VW ID.4 design
Not every prospective EV buyer is a fan of Volkswagen's new design language, which has recently been established with all-electric SUVs such as the VW ID.4. Fortunately, new rumors are now suggesting that the upcoming electric Volkswagen Tiguan might sport a more conventional design that could please the traditionalists among VW fans.
According to a report by InsideEVs, which also includes a beautiful unofficial render image of the electric VW Tiguan, the all-electric compact SUV will look fairly similar to the current model with an internal combustion engine. That would mean that the electric Volkswagen Tiguan will not feature the rather round shapes of the VW ID.4. The EV is further expected to be about as long as the conventional model, whose European variant measures 177 inches.
Moreover, latest rumors suggest that Volkswagen's main factory in Wolfsburg, Germany has recently received the green light for the development and eventual mass production of the electric VW Tiguan that should begin in 2026. Meanwhile, it is safe to assume that the compact addition to the German automaker's EV lineup will be based on the upgraded MEB+ platform, which will debut with the electric VW Golf. It remains unclear if and when the electric Volkswagen Tiguan will become available on the American market, which currently only features the VW ID.4 and ID. Buzz.
