Teased earlier this month ahead of the Auto Shanghai motor show, Volkswagen has now officially unveiled its ID.6 crossover, the German automaker’s largest electric vehicle to date.

Designed specifically for the Chinese market, the car comes in a variety of configurations based on two main trims: the Crozz and the X. You’ll be able to choose between five seats or seven, and a rear-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive powertrain. Just like its ID.4 sibling, the former option allows you to choose between two engines, one pushing out 177 horsepower and the other a slightly higher 201 horsepower, both offering the same 162 pound-feet of torque. The latter option utilizes a dual-motor setup that can generate 302 horsepower and 229 pound0feet of torque, giving you that extra bump in performance. You’ll also have two different battery options: a 58kWh pack with a 270-mile range, and a larger 77kWh pack with a range of 365 miles.

For the time being, Volkswagen will only be releasing the ID.6 in China, where it’s being built exclusively. There’s no news on whether it’ll launch in other countries, so those interested should keep an eye out for more updates from the company.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, Bentley Mulliner has crafted an Equinox Edition of the Continental GT V8 exclusively for Japan.
