VW ID Roomzz Flagship Electric SUV Concept Teased Before Shanghai Debut

As promised, Volkswagen will unveil a flagship electric SUV at the Shanghai Auto Show (April 16-April 24) and today we get the first preview.

It’s called the ID Roomzz (not the ID Lounge as previously reported) and it’s a concept vehicle that heralds the next member of the ID family. The study previews a big electric SUV that will hit the Chinese market first in 2021. VW doesn’t say it but the ID Roomzz could be offered in other markets as well after its debut in China.

As with all the other members of the ID lineup revealed so far (ID hatch, ID Crozz, ID Buzz, ID Vizzion, and ID Buggy), the ID Roomzz is built on VW Group’s Modular electric drive matrix (MEB).

If you wonder where the new concept’s name comes from, VW says it’s a reference to the vehicle’s variability of the interior. The automaker describes the concept as a “multi-variable all-round model” that boasts “completely new seat configurations, high-quality materials, and customizable light.”

According to the automaker, the electric SUV study features a number of innovations on board and is capable of Level 4 autonomous driving, requiring no active driver in ID Pilot mode.

“The I.D. Roomzz shows us what we can expect from full-size electric SUVs in the future. The puristic look emphasizes the clear function and the user experience is intuitive and natural,” says Klaus Bischoff, Chief Designer at the Volkswagen brand.

Looking at the design sketch, the ID Roomzz features a similar front end design to the ID Crozz, while the suicide doors and sloping roofline give it a coupe-like profile. The creases on the hood, the muscular haunches, and the bulged front fenders make it look more aggressive than the ID Crozz, though.

    Like the distinctness of their upcoming range. Would like to see how they transition in their production guise.

  • People hate on Tesla for couple of weeks delay, when all VW has is vaporware. Can’t wait to see these cars on the road, but it’s been painfully long since they started teasing them.
