All will be revealed next month at the Petersen Automotive Museum.
Unveiled at the 2019 Frankfurt Auto Show, the Volkswagen ID.3 hatchback replaces the retired e-Golf and marks the start of VW's new electric era. While it will go on sale in Europe, America will have to wait a little longer for VW's first ID. model to arrive. We already know the production version of the ID. Crozz will come to America first. Next month, VW will also present an all-new ID. Concept car that could preview another US-bound electric VW.
The reveal will take place at the Petersen Automotive Museum in LA as part of a new interactive exhibit called "Building an Electric Future.
The exhibit will "showcase the design and construction of the vehicles of tomorrow," celebrate VW's global history, and showcase the automaker's upcoming electric ID. range. It will be open to the public on November 20, but the new ID. concept will be shown at a private event on November 19.
"'Building an Electric Future' gives a behind the scenes look at making the new age of electric and autonomous mobility happen," said Klaus Bischoff, Executive Director of Volkswagen Design. "It shows varying perspectives from the point of view of the designer, the manufacturer, and the consumer. There's no better opportunity to start this amazing exhibit than with the world premiere of our newest member of the ID. family."
VW hasn't released any details about the mystery concept, so it isn't clear what form it will take. The accompanying teaser photo shows the ID. Vizzion concept that debuted at Geneva last year, so it could be an updated version of the electric sedan. However, the location suggests it will preview a future ID. model with a different body style designed for the American market such as a large SUV or a pickup truck. The production ID.4 crossover, on the other hand, will be shown in February 2020.
The exhibit will also showcase how Volkswagen's modular electric drive matrix was engineered and how the models will be assembled. In addition to the new concept, four other MEB-based concept vehicles will be displayed, which will likely be the Crozz, Roomzz, Buzz Cargo, and ID Buggy concepts.
