It's funky and weird and almost certainly not coming to the US.

It's based on the MEB platform, the same as the ID 4, but shortened and with a front-drive layout.

Front overhangs? Not so much, but the charger is tucked in here.

It all looks mighty cool -- but good chance it's not coming to the US. Sorry!
