Variable configuration. The zero-emission drive of the I.D. BUGGY is made up of the electric motor integrated in the rear axle together with the power electronics and 1-speed gearbox, the high-voltage flat battery arranged in the car floor to save space and the additional units integrated in the vehicle front end. The electric motor delivers 150 kW / 204 PS. The character of the sporty ID. BUGGY matches the engine that provides a maximum torque of 310 Nm from standstill. This means that the electric vehicle always provides enough power on the rear axle, even off-road. With full acceleration on paved slopes, the concept car reaches 100 km/h after just 7.2 seconds. The maximum speed is electronically controlled at 160 km/h. As an alternative to the rear drive, it is also possible to fit a second electric motor in the front axle of the ID. BUGGY. In this case, an “electric propshaft” would distribute the power of the 4MOTION four-wheel drive between the front and rear axles in fractions of a second as soon as this is necessary for reasons of driving dynamics.
Focused on performance. Regardless of rear drive or four-wheel drive, power electronics control the high-voltage energy flow between the engine and battery. The power electronics convert direct current (DC) stored in the battery into alternating current (AC). The on-board electronics are supplied with 12V via a DC/DC converter. The position of the battery in the vehicle floor has a positive effect on the neutral handling properties of the ID. BUGGY, as the centre of gravity is moved down.
