Volkswagen will stage the world première of the ID. SPACE VIZZION at the Los Angeles Auto Show from 22 November to 1 December – introducing a zero-emission vehicle for a new era, a new way of thinking, and a new form of mobility. The ID. SPACE VIZZION is a futuristic model that combines the aerodynamic properties of a Gran Turismo with the spacious proportions of an SUV. Stylistically, the ID. SPACE VIZZION follows the design DNA of the ID. Family and creates an entirely new look with its fully independent and avant-garde character. The optimum aerodynamic design of the front end and roof is particularly striking, as air flows straight through them. Inside, the concept car features a fully digital cockpit which represents the new status quo in terms of intuitive operation. For the first time, all driving information is displayed primarily in the highly visible Augmented Reality (AR) head-up display. In the ID. SPACE VIZZION, the AR head-up display replaces the traditional cockpit, which now becomes a secondary mini display showing only basic information. All information, entertainment, comfort and online functions and vehicle settings are also grouped together on a 15.6-inch touchscreen which appears to hover in mid-air. The traditional gear knob is a thing of the past, The gears (D, B, R, N) and the park position (P) are now activated using an equally intuitive steering column switch.
Range of up to 590 kilometres. Like all members of the ID. Family, the new ID. SPACE VIZZION will also be fully electric. The five-door GranTurismo has a lithium-ion battery with a gross energy content of 82 kWh (net 77 kWh). It powers an electric motor mounted on the rear axle (205 kW). Volkswagen has also developed a second configuration featuring an additional electric motor (75 kW) mounted on the front axle. The combination of the two electric motors (250 kW of system power) creates an electric all-wheel drive vehicle. The efficiency of the drive system and the excellent aerodynamic properties (drag coefficient of 0.24) enable the ID. SPACE VIZZION to cover a range of up to 590 kilometres (WLTP) or 300 miles (EPA).
Debut scheduled for 2021. The ID. SPACE VIZZION shares its name with the ID. VIZZION concept saloon exhibited at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. The exterior and interior of the ID. SPACE VIZZION showcase a genuine vision of the ID. Class production models. Just like the best-selling Passat, which will still be available worldwide, a saloon and estate version of the all- electric mid-range model, which is similarly positioned, will be on the market from 2021.
Seventh member in the ID. Family. The new ID. SPACE VIZZION is the seventh model in the future ID. Family, following on from the ID. ROOMZZ and ID. CROZZ SUV models, the iconic ID. BUZZ van, the ID. BUGGY beach cruiser and the production version of the compact ID. model which has already been presented. This is the first time that a company in the automotive sector has marketed a completely independent family of electric vehicles while retaining its petrol, diesel, gas and hybrid models. Volkswagen is the first manufacturer to embark on this sustainable path in order to supply the right vehicles for any scenario across all global markets, and to be carbon-neutral by 2050.
Zero-emissions space-saving sensation. The two-tone ID. SPACE VIZZION combines a Saintly Blue Pearl Effect finish – a new metallic white with shimmering blue and violet pigments – with a high-gloss black. In terms of design, the concept car is manufactured on Volkswagen’s modular electric drive matrix (MEB), as are all ID. Family models. This creates an entirely new package as the electric drive components are extremely compact and the battery is integrated into the vehicle floor to save space, which means that it is possible to alter the overall architecture of the vehicle body. For instance, the lack of a combustion engine means that the A-pillars can be positioned much further forward in the engine compartment to create a layout that has a positive impact on the sense of space and the proportions. As a result, the interior of the new ID. SPACE VIZZION has significantly more volume and length than any comparable vehicle in its class. The highly flexible all-rounder is 4,958 mm long, 1,529 mm high, and 1,897 mm wide.
