Up to 250 kW of system power. The ID. SPACE VIZZION exhibited in Los Angeles is powered by a 205 kW electric motor mounted on the rear axle. A lithium-ion battery supplies power to the electric drive motor. The gross energy content of the battery is 82 kWh (net: 77 kWh). Power electronics on the front and rear axle control the flow of high-voltage energy between the motor and the battery. Power electronics convert direct current (DC) stored in the battery into alternating current (AC). The on-board electronics are supplied with 12 volts via a DC/DC converter. Ideal weight distribution (approaching 50:50) is achieved by placing the battery in the middle of the vehicle floor and positioning the drive components. This results in extremely dynamic and safe handling. The fully redeveloped running gear also has a significant influence on this, featuring electronic damping control, a multi-link rear axle, and a McPherson front axle.
4MOTION as an alternative. In addition to the 205 kW rear-mounted engine, the ID. SPACE VIZZION can also be fitted with a 75 kW coaxial drive. The combination of both motors results in a system output of 250 kW. The rear axle provides propulsion as standard. An electric propshaft distributes the power of the 4MOTION all-wheel drive between the front and rear axles within fractions of a second once this becomes necessary due to driving dynamics. In addition, the ID. SPACE VIZZION 4MOTION can also be driven in permanent all-wheel drive, for instance in ski resorts.
Driving performances and range. The 4MOTION version of the ID. SPACE VIZZION sprints to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds (0–60 mph in 5.0 seconds). The maximum speed is electronically limited to 175 km/h (109 mph). In the European WLTP cycle, the range of the rear-wheel drive concept car exhibited in Los Angeles is up to 590 kilometres. In the US EPA cycle, the range is up to 300 miles.
