Volkswagen already has an all-electric car out in the form of the ID.3 hatchback, but that particular model isn’t destined for US shores. Instead, we’ll be getting the yet-to-be-unveiled ID.4 fully electric SUV, which you can get a look inside of now.

The German automaker published a series of photos of the EV’s interior on Friday ahead of its world debut, set to take place later this month. 

Judging from the photos, the cabin of the ID.4 looks to be an airy place, with big windows and good forward visibility, at least. Volkswagen said the trunk has 30.3 cubic feet of cargo space when the second row seats are upright. That’s a bit less than the 2020 Toyota RAV4, which has 37.5 cubic feet of space.

Regardless, it’s a pretty conservative interior, which can be a good thing. Buyers are used to their cars looking a certain way and if we want EVs to really catch on in the mainstream like Volkswagen is aiming to do with the ID.4, it can’t have a far-out interior that will alienate buyers.
