Volkswagen's latest ID. concept will debut at the 2019 LA Auto Show this month.
Last week, Volkswagen announced that it will be unveiling yet another electric ID. concept at the Petersen Automotive Museum in LA this month, but the body style was a complete mystery. However, the location suggested the new concept will preview a future production VW ID. model designed for the North American market that will be sold alongside the upcoming ID.4 crossover.
Volkswagen has now confirmed its latest concept is called the ID. Space Vizzion. It previews the electric wagon of the future that "combines 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," said Klaus Bischoff, Head of Volkswagen Design. Like other ID. models, the Space Vizzion will be based on VW's Modular Electric Drive Matrix platform.
The electric wagon features a sporty, aerodynamic design, with a sloping roof, openings in the front and roof to optimize airflow, and a front fascia that mimics the design language of other ID. models with a full-width light bar and sleek LED lights.
A render also gives us a sneak peek at the interior, showing that the ID. Space Vizzion will have individual captain's chairs and a completely digital cockpit incorporating a full-width digital gauge cluster and a large portrait-orientated touchscreen. Interior materials are made from sustainable raw materials, such as an artificial leather that uses residual matter from apple juice production. According to VW, the ID. Space Vizzion has a range of up to 300 miles based on the EPA. Powertrain details haven't been revealed, but it will likely use a dual-motor setup.
The Volkswagen ID. Space Vizzion will debut at the 2019 LA Auto Show on November 19 before the production model arrives in late 2021. Different versions will be developed for North America, Europe, and China.
