After announcing it will start producing its first I.D. vehicle in 2019, Volkswagen officially stated that it will unveil the fourth car in the electric range, in a world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show. The I.D. VIZZION is the newest vehicle supporting Volkswagen’s ambition toward future individual mobility. The I.D. family currently consists of 4 models, while the company plans to extend the range of all – electric vehicles to 20 by 2025.
The latest I.D. VIZZION model is an extension in the I.D. family, pioneering autonomous driving. Volkswagen is developing modern vehicles and focusing on innovative technology that will make its vehicles cleaner, safer and much more convenient and comfortable. The vehicles will be available for all customer groups, even those that cannot drive because of their age.
I.D. VIZZION is Volkswagen’s vehicle of the future, with a fully-automated operating concept and elegant form. A ‘digital chauffeur’ assumes control without a steering wheel or visible controls, with its many assistance systems. It drives, steers and navigates autonomously in traffic, enabling passengers a new dimension of safety and comfort. The virtual host communicates with the passengers through voice and gesture control, enabling adaption to personal preferences, embedded in the digital eco-system.
The vehicle is 5.11 meter long, with a system power of 225 kW. It can reach a top speed of 180 km/h, and a driving range of up to 665 kilometers, powered by a 111 kWh lithium-ion battery. It has a dual motor system, which maximizes efficiency.
The I.D. VIZZION paves the way to Volkswagen’s autonomous future. The company considers it as the technological backbone to all future electric vehicles, expected by 2025. In the meantime, Volkswagen will start producing its I.D. electric hatchback in 2019, after the successful launch of which, it will also roll out the I.D. CROZZ and I.D. BUZZ models.
