Recently, Volkswagen released a group of its pure electric concept car – ID. An official picture of Space Vizzion. The concept car uses a new design language from the public and has a very artistic appearance. And because of the use of more streamlined body shape, and the body fluid mechanics to make the corresponding optimization, the vehicle’s driving wind resistance is only 0.24, so that the vehicle’s driving energy consumption further decreased, but also to a certain extent increased the range of the vehicle.
In addition, the car will be followed by rear drive and four-wheel drive versions. The new car will be unveiled at the upcoming 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show, and the mass-produced version will be available in the second half of 2021.
Judging from the official picture photos, the new car is more inclined to MPV models. But VW officials say the car is defined as a crossover. The design is inspired by the large GT models (Gran Turismo) and SUV models, both excellent aerodynamics of the former and the latter’s wide space, taking into account the sportiness and practicality of the vehicle.
The front face of the new car uses the family design language of the VOLKSWAGEN ID model series. In addition, it can be seen that Volkswagen intends to make the appearance of the ID model into a family face of the VOLKSWAGEN electric car model.
The interior aspect of the car, in stunning description can not be too much. VW has abandoned its traditional interior layout and is also quite bold in enabling new design elements. At present, the popular under-through central channel, suspension-type medium-control large screen are arranged in the new car.
And, it’s worth noting that the interior of the new car uses a material called the AppleSkin, a new interior material that replaces leather.
In terms of power, new cars are doing just as well. The maximum power is 205Kw and 265Kw for the subsequent and four-wheel drive versions. The four-wheel drive version of the 100 km acceleration time is less than 5 seconds, acceleration performance is excellent. However, for safety and regulatory reasons, the speed of the new car is limited to 175Km/h.
In terms of battery life, the vehicle is powered by an 82 kWh power battery that provides 367 miles (about 560 kilometers) of range for the vehicle under WLTP operating conditions, compared with 300 miles (483 kilometers) under EPA. Overall, it is a good fit for the current urban commuter needs.
