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.

Uncompromising e-mobility: World premiere of the modular electric drive matrix – Volkswagen launches ELECTRIC FOR ALL campaignVolkswagen is driving the transition to e-mobility with a consistency and commitment unlike that of virtually any other automaker. As part of the ELECTRIC FOR ALL campaign launched today, the brand will be putting attractive models at affordable prices on the road, paving the way for the breakthrough of electric vehicles. The electric offensive is based on the modular electric drive matrix (MEB), a technology platform developed specifically for electric vehicles. Production of the Volkswagen ID., the world’s first series vehicle based on the MEB, will begin in Zwickau at the end of 2019. At the launch of the ELECTRIC FOR ALL campaign, media representatives from all over the world are being given their first deep insight into the technological basis of the ID. at a media workshop in the Gläserne Manufaktur in Dresden, where Volkswagen is demonstrating the centerpiece of the MEB – the rolling chassis without the bodywork and interior – exactly as it will be used in series models. Volkswagen is also seizing the initiative when it comes to charging infrastructure: a design prototype of the “Volks-Wallbox” is also being premiered in Dresden. This Wallbox is an affordable home system that makes charging the ID. family easy and convenient.
