The Volkswagen brand is taking the next steps in its holistic electronic mobility strategy. In addition to full electric models in the I.D. Family - I.D., I.D. BUZZ, I.D. CROZZ and I.D. VIZZION the brand is also committed to micromobility, another future area of sustainable urban mobility:
Volkswagen will be giving an insight into this at Geneva Motor Show (public stage from 7 to 17 March) with two innovative concept cars for this new form of mobility: the cool compact Cityskater, a production-ready last mile surfer and scooter-like concept car, Streetmate. The Streetmate has a range of up to 35 km, which means it can easily cover relatively long distances and is therefore perfect for daily runs between home and workplace. The Cityskater offers a range of around 15 km; it fits into the boot and can easily be carried on the tube. Volkswagen covers the entire range of electric mobility – from the luxury class concept car I.D. VIZZION, the multivariable and iconic I.D. BUZZ, the spacious SUV I.D. CROZZ and the compact I.D., not to mention the Streetmate and Cityskater.
Networked mobility. The seamless networking of different vehicle types – and thus the use of compact micro mobility products in the style of the Streetmate and Cityskater – are creating exciting new opportunities for urban mobility. The use of mobile solutions such as Streetmate and Cityskater saves time. Visitors and residents in cities around the world will soon be able to leave their cars at home, at hotels, in parking garages, outdoor car parks and parking spaces, opting instead for smaller zero-emission vehicles such as the Streetmate and Cityskater to get around. Innovative vehicle concepts such as the Streetmate and Cityskater thus have the potential to bring about a permanent change in future mobility habits.
