The new VW ID Space Vizzion concept is described as the “crossover of tomorrow”, a car that combines “the aerodynamic characteristics of a Gran Turismo with the spaciousness of an SUV”. That’s quite a fancy way of describing a sporty wagon.
The latest ID member is based on the company’s EV-only MEB platform and promises to offer an EPA driving range of up to 300 miles (482 km), thanks to the efficiency of its electric powertrain and very aerodynamic design.
“So far, with our ID. family, we have shown what is possible with electric vehicles in each known car category,” said Klaus Bischoff, Head of Volkswagen Design. “With the ID Space Vizzion we create a new, fully electric segment.”
The first official sketches reveal a very Tesla Model 3-like dashboard, featuring a big touchscreen display in the middle, full-width air vents and a smaller screen in front of the driver. The concept will adopt a six-seat configuration in three rows, featuring lounge-like chairs dressed in ‘AppleSkin’ -a vegan alternative to leather- for everyone, ambient lighting and other eye-catching details.
VW also confirmed that the ID Space Vizzion previews a production version that’s scheduled to arrive in the market in late 2021, with different versions planned for North America, Europe and China.
Stay tuned for the official reveal of the VW ID Space Vizzion concept on November 19.
