Volkswagen (VW) announced Thursday that it will present the ID.Space Vizzion prototype, an electric SUV concept that combines the characteristics of great tourism with the aesthetics of an SUV, at the Los Angeles Auto Show on November 19.
The ID.Space Vizzion is based on VW's Modular Electric Drive Matrix (MEB) platform and is specially designed for electric vehicles, whether passenger cars or SUV SUVs.
The company said the production version of the prototype will be released in late 2021 and will have several versions for North America, Europe and China.
Volkswagen, which has set itself the goal of becoming the world leader in electric vehicles and by 2025 selling 1 million electric vehicles per year, plans to invest 30,000 million euros in the coming years for electromobility.
The basis of VW's strategy is the family of electric vehicles ID. On November 4, the company began serial production of compact ID.3 at the Zwickau factory in eastern Germany.
The ID.3 is the first model of the ID family that is mass produced and the basic version is priced at less than 30,000 euros in Germany. The vehicle will appear at dealerships in most European countries in the summer of 2020.
By 2028, VW plans to sell 22 million ID electric vehicles. In addition to ID.3, Volkswagen has presented the prototypes ID.Crozz, ID.Buzz, ID.Buggy, ID.Roomzz and ID.Vizzion. The latter has been presented by VW as the family's flagship.
VW design director Klaus Bischoff said in a statement today that ID.Space Vizzion the German company "creates a new, all-electric segment."
The vehicle, of which VW showed several drawings, has a range of 300 miles (480 kilometers). Inside, the control panel is fully digitized.
Aesthetically, the vehicle is a five-door with general lines similar to those of a Porsche Panamera Gran Turismo.
