Seamless perfection. The ID. ROOMZZ concept car is 4,930 mm in length. The wheelbase between the bumpers is 2,965 mm. The zero-emission vehicle is 1,903 mm wide and 1,675 mm in height. The concept SUV’s exterior design adopts the clear, homogeneous lines of the rest of the ID. family; at the same time, the team led by Volkswagen head designer Klaus Bischoff has given the ID. ROOMZZ all the personality it needs to shine. Even better: the concept car breaks entirely new ground in the large SUV segment thanks to its many practical details. The seamless transitions between individual bodywork parts and levels are just one unique selling point; the precise, refined design results in perfect aerodynamics and provides a homogeneous, clear view of all areas. There’s a reason why the ID. ROOMZZ is painted in the new shade of Sunset Red. Background: In China, red is considered to be the colour of life and joy. Everything is decked out in red over Chinese New Year. Red is also a colour of warmth and power in China. When combined with gold, it symbolises wealth and luck, which is why the Sunset Red paintwork is enriched with traces of gold – the intense shade of red with its gold sparkle effect reflects the strong symbolism associated with these colours in China.
Silhouette with stylish shoulder section. The side panel is especially charismatic. A stylish touch is added in the form of the shoulder line with its unusually sharp undercut on the front and rear shoulder line as it transitions to the powerful, muscular wings. The wheel housings are home to 22-inch metal alloy wheels with 265 series tyres. The silhouette is also refined, with an aluminium roof line extending from the A pillar to the D pillar. An aluminium roof rail runs parallel to it. The wings of the exterior cameras (instead of exterior mirrors) and the illuminated touch strips for opening and closing the doors are visible only as narrow lines. An all-new, muscular SUV dynamic is created thanks to the seamless transitions, imposing shoulder areas and wings, retracted mid-section in the style of a sports car, and drawn-out proportions of the roof line, which are refined with aluminium elements.
A front end with the DNA of e-mobility. The ID. ROOMZZ radiates the fact that it is electrically driven. Instead of large air inlets, horizontally aligned LED elements along with clear, aerodynamically designed areas in the vehicle colour are dominant. Despite its impressive appearance, the design is welcoming and underlines the fact that the ID. ROOMZZ is very much compatible with the modern, urban environment due to its emission-free drive and interactive assistance systems. A formative aspect is the line that seamlessly moves from the window parapet to the bonnet, which provides the upper section of the front and the sharp undercut with its own distinctive structure and adds greater emphasis to its SUV character. Two LED clasps (daytime running lights) that emanate from the illuminated VW sign on the left and right-hand sides emphasise the width of the concept car. In essence, light becomes a design feature. The upper strip encloses the LED headlights from the outside – a new variation of the LED daytime running lights in the ID. and the ID. CROZZ, developed for a very large SUV. The middle section of the front characterises the bumperThe front end, which features seamless transitions of individual elements, has optimised aerodynamics in order to minimise energy consumption.
LED welcome scenario. On opening the ID. ROOMZZ, the front and side LED elements – starting with the illuminated VW logo – are activated to welcome the occupants The centrally located LED crossbar and LED daytime running lights above and below the interactive “IQ.LIGHT – matrix LED headlights” start up one after the other. This is followed by the upper LED crossbar, whose light sequence encompasses the full headlights; the matrix LED headlights light up at the same time. The LEDs on the narrow touch strips in the side panel for opening the doors are also activated. The LEDs are extinguished in reverse order when the vehicle is parked. For reasons of comfort, the LED touch strips for the doors are the last to be deactivated.
Rear end with programmable rear light. As at the front, a circumferential line creates an unbroken line with the rear from the shoulder’s sharp, precise undercut, which makes the ROOMZZ appear lower and emphasises its width. The rear also has an all-new light design which is unique even within the ID. family. An LED strip with diamond cut-outs running across the rear displays all lighting functions. In stylistic terms, the diamonds represent a bridge to the front. As part of a lighting workshop in autumn 2018, Volkswagen announced a customisable tail light signature via app that will be available in the future. The ID. ROOMZZ is the German manufacturer’s first concept car where the tail light signature can be customised via a smartphone app. This provides the owner of the ID. ROOMZZ with new, customisable LED graphic elements.
Rear window with brake light feature. The lighting of the future is smart. The ID. ROOMZZ demonstrates this well with its rear window, into which a light blind is integrated and acts as a third brake light. When braking slightly, only part of the blind "rolls up" from the bottom to the top. If the car brakes sharply, the brake light increases to encompass the entire rear window area. The warning effect is increased many times by the dynamic light.
