Volkswagen of America will make its inaugural entry in the Rebelle Rally with an ID.4.

The woman-driven and navigated off-road competition in the deserts of Nevada and California will see Driver Mercedes Lilienthal and Navigator Emily Winslow competing in a prepared ID.4 from 7 October to 16 October 2021.

The competing Volkswagen ID.4 features a custom vehicle wrap inspired by the terrain of the Nevada and California deserts
The Rebelle Rally, now in its sixth year, is the first all-women rally raid event of its kind in the U.S.A, challenging teams and vehicles across 2,200km through the deserts of Nevada and California.

Lilienthal and Winslow will compete in the ID.4 Pro in the crossover category. Tanner Foust Racing and Rhys Millen Racing are modifying the vehicle with new suspension components, tubular control arms, fabricated skid plates, battery protection and other items to fully equip the vehicle for the driving expedition. The vehicle will also be outfitted with Thule rack accessories and Yokohama Geolandar all-terrain tyres.

The Volkswagen ID.4's 82kWh capacity battery along with the permanent-magnet synchronous motor in the rear and asynchronous motor in the front will remain as is, offering a combined maximum 291bhp and 460Nm of torque. The ID.4 Pro has a U.S.A Environmental Protection Agency-estimated range of 400km on a full charge.

The vehicle wrap was created by Salt Lake City-based Artist Liz Kuz, who drew inspiration from the anticipated rally terrain throughout the Nevada and California deserts.
