Volkswagen ID Space Vizzion confirmed for 2021 production
Thursday, 7 November 2019 () Latest addition to Wolfsburg’s electric vehicle family is an estate; previewed ahead of its LA motor show debut
Volkswagen has previewed a new addition to its ID electric vehicle family ahead of its public debut at the Los Angeles motor show.
The ID Space Vizzion is an estate variant of the ID Vizzion luxury saloon that was revealed in early 2018, and it has been confirmed for production late next year.
The ID Space Vizzion is described as “a wagon of tomorrow that combine the aerodynamic characteristics of a gran turismo with the spaciousness of an SUV”.
The concept makes use of an extended version of the Volkswagen Group's MEB platform, and the firm promises it will be capable of up to 367 miles on a single charge under the WLTP testing regime.
Volkswagen claims a “completely digitised cockpit” alongside the use of sustainable materials such as ‘Appleskin’, an artificial leather made partially from residual matter of apple juice production.
It has been confirmed that different variants of the production car will be offered in North America, Europe and China, although it’s not clear yet how different these region-specific models will be.
The concept's unveiling will take place at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, US on 19 November, with attendees invited to examine the ‘accessible and unlocked’ concept in detail, suggesting that it will feature a fully finished interior. Volkswagen will display four other MEB-based concepts at the event, likely the ID Crozz and ID Roomzz SUVs, ID Buzz Cargo van and ID Buggy off-roader.
The firm unwrapped its first production-ready MEB electric car, the ID 3 hatchback, at last month’s Frankfurt motor show. That will soon be joined by a production version of the ID 4 SUV, which we recently saw undergoing pre-production testing in heavy camouflage.
