2022 VW ID6: that face...




While the profile seems OK. Kinda a generic SUV/tall wagon thing. That poor ugly face is tough to look at...

VW claims they will be taking over Tesla in sales in just a few years. By selling a gazillion EVs and dominating the market. 
Not with this! Or anything looking close to this. The front-end design even ruins the profile! Look at these giant (for no reason) droopy headlights!

They act as if they were the only ones working on electric cars to take on Tesla. But they're not. Everyone else is too.
And there will no doubt be some attractive design to pick from. From brands with a much higher brand image than VW too. 
Maybe this is good enough for the giant Chinese market everyone is after? Or their brand image is so golden in Europe they just can sell anything?

Maybe it's just me, but I really don't think this can fly in the US/Canada market. And by the way, Telsa isn't sitting still either ...
Someone should remind VW this is earth.

Tesla has nothing to worry about if that's VW best effort. Yeeesh that is ugly.

I dont think the pictures do it any favors, but the more I look at it the less bizarre it looks. I also had heard this wasnt coming to USA so nothing to worry about here.

As far as taking on a large share of the market, I think VW is best positioned to do so given the price point for their products and overall quality in comparison to other manufacturers. Tesla essentially starts where VW would max out, and their network across the globe is far superior. Looking at how well the ID.3 has sold so far, I have no doubt they will be high volume sooner than later.

awful design. from the front, if you squint, it looks like Bender from Futurama. That huge mouth.

Ioniq division of Hyundai Motor Group is going to be the real EVs to beat. I will never buy a VW Group vehicle, thanks to #Dieselgate

@FFEMT6 This reads like a paid ad. How much they're paying you homie? Seriously, i'd like some korean shekels too.

Disappointing that VW is starting to hire little girls in their design studios.
