Volkswagen I.D. Crozz revealed

Volkswagen signals its push towards electric mobility with the reveal of its latest electric vehicle, the I.D. Crozz which will arrive from 2020.

VOLKSWAGEN IS COMMITTING to electric vehicles and has just revealed its latest product, the I.D. Crozz which joins the I.D. and I.D.Buzz (launching in 2022). All three models are expected to launch from 2020.

Dr Herbert Diess, Chairman of the Volkswagen Brand Board of Management said: “The Volkswagen Brand will be investing 6 billion euros in electric mobility over the next five years. Our task is to make modern technology available to many people. This is especially important in times of technological transformation. One thing is clear: The Golf of the future must once again be a people’s car!”

Volkswagen claims it’ll have 23 all-electric cars on the road by 2025, launching with the three mentioned above in 2020.

So, what is the I.D. Crozz? According to VW, “it’s a crossover of an SUV and a four-door coupé, which has been further improved towards a production implementation. The I.D. CROZZ makes a powerful and masculine impression with its wide bonnet, cleanly contoured wings and roof with a high-gloss black exterior finish.

“The interior has also been re-equipped and further developed – as an Open Space – with a superior amount of space and highly versatile seating concept. B-pillars were omitted in the I.D. CROZZ, so that the large swinging and sliding doors can be opened wide, and it is even possible to transport a crossbike without any trouble”.

Its ridiculous name aside, the I.D. Crozz features a 4Motion all-wheel drive system with an electric motor on each of the axles generating up to 225kW with a top speed of 180km/h and a touring range of up to 500km. VW says the batteries can be fast-charged to 80% in just 30min.
