Volkswagen started the countdown to the future with the world premiere of its visionary I.D. study at the Paris Motor Show in 2016. The compact 125 kW I.D. is a highly automated electric car based on Volkswagen’s ground-breaking All-New Electric Architecture. With one battery charge, the I.D. can cover distances between 400 and 600 kilometers. The production version is to be launched in 2020 at the price level of a Golf with comparable power output and equipment. However, Volkswagen is looking much further into the future with the study. In the I.D. Pilot mode, the electric car allows fully automated driving. This technology is to be ready for series production by 2025.
