The ID. Space Vizzion – New Volkswagen Concept is Unveiled in LA
Baptized as ID. Space Vizzion, this electric vehicle, is the seventh concept idealized to the MEB platform. From the looks of it, VW is preparing to go heads deep on electric.
This new vision from VW is particularly impressive. It rocks GT aerodynamics but without losing the design elements of a wagon SUV. The battery is relatively large, with 82kWh and 300 miles of range. The motor is capable of generating 275hp and 406 pound-feet of torque. That gives the Vizzion an estimated 0-60 in five seconds and a max speed of 109 Mph. The car is scheduled to hit the streets in 2022.
“Volkswagen globally plans to sell 20 different electric models by 2025 at an annualized volume of nearly 1 million units using our modular electrical architecture. It will support the projected production volume of 20 million vehicles to 2029…
… This makes us the largest, and the MEB platform by far the most efficient electric volume segment platform in the automotive industry. It will be used by other group brands and external partners such as Ford. The MEB brings massive scaling effects with no fewer than eight factories around the globe.
We just broke ground specifically to build these electric vehicles last week, as part of an $800 million investment here in the US, in Chattanooga, Tennessee. We will not only build the vehicles in Tennessee. We will also assemble the batteries there, as well.
We have announced that worldwide, we will go carbon zero by 2025 in line with the goals of the United Nations, Paris Climate Agreement. It’s a massive statement. And frankly, it’s only possible with an electric future. This is our belief.” – Scott Keogh, CEO of Volkswagen of America.
