volkswagen has announced the debut of its electric ID. space vizzion concept, which will be unveiled at the los angeles auto show on november 19th 2019. it envisions a zero-emissions vehicle for a new era combining the aerodynamic characteristics of a gran turismo with the spaciousness of an SUV.
“So far, with our ID. family, we have shown what is possible with electric vehicles in each known car category. With the ID. SPACE VIZZION we create a new, fully electric segment,” says Klaus Bischoff, Head of Volkswagen Design.
The ID. SPACE VIZZION is based on Volkswagen’s Modular Electric Drive Matrix (MEB). The MEB fully exploits the technical possibilities of e-mobility and guarantees long ranges, dynamic driving performance and a whole new level of digital networking.
When it comes to the design, the front and roof sections are particularly precise, with openings for the airstream for aerodynamically optimal design. Thanks to the efficiency of the drive system and impressive aerodynamics, the ID. SPACE VIZZION has a range of up to 590 kilometers (WLTP) or 300 miles (EPA).
Inside, the study defines a completely new paradigm of intuitive usability with its completely digitized cockpit. The materials are consistently made from sustainable raw materials, such as the new AppleSkin™, an artificial leather with a proportion of residual matter from apple juice production.
The ID. SPACE VIZZION is a study for the future, but not a dream. The production version will be released in late 2021, and will come in different versions for North America, Europe and China.
