Volkswagen’s latest all-electric concept wagon can be coming to the U.S. by 2022
Volkswagen announced on Tuesday evening a unique concept vehicle named the ID Space Vizzion.
And despite the insane Frank Zappaesque name, this one may genuinely make it into production in Europe and North America.
What is the ID Space Vizzion?
The ID Space Vizzion is the seventh idea that VW has started since 2016 that uses its MEB program, an adjustable modular system.
It is a matrix of standard parts for producing electric vehicles that VW says makes it more productive and cost-effective.
The primary vehicles to use this MEB platform will be below the ID brand, although this program can, and will, be applied for electric vehicles under other VW Group brands such as Skoda and Seat.
The ID.3 is the initial model in its current all-electric ID brand and the start of the automaker’s ambitious plan to sell 1 million EVs yearly by 2025.
The First Look
A production version of the ID. 3 was revealed in September.
The ID Space Vizzion is provided with a rear-mounted 275-horsepower motor and an 82-kilowatt-hour battery pack with a reach of up to 300 miles under the EU’s WLTP cycle.
A second motor can be attached to give it all-wheel-drive ability and a complete output of 355 horsepower.
Inside the idea is four seats.
Volkswagen announced a production vehicle with three rear seats is also feasible.
Among the seats, there is a big fold-out center console with storage spaces, drink holders, and USB-C ports.
The infotainment system is in the middle, somewhat suggestive of the Tesla Model 3, and has touch-activated surfaces for purposes such as media or phone.
This thought will likely be defined in several ways, and while the event at the Petersen Museum in Los Angeles, it was, although this is a wagon through and through.
What the ID. Space Vizzion will eventually look like it is unclear, although much of the appearance and overall stance showed on Tuesday evening will likely remain the same.
Scott Keogh, the CEO of Volkswagen of America, did state in his closing statements that something like the idea shown recently will come to the U.S.
