The Volkswagen I. D. Concept that was presented in the past Hall of Paris has been a prototype of great importance for the German brand. With him went into the world of the and electric propulsion and served as a preview of a production model that will arrive in 2020. In the Salon de Detroit it seems that we will have a novelty that will be very closely linked, as it will be another prototype of the family of the I. D. Concept.
we Still do not know his name or many details, but we have already been able to to see some teasers. Judging by the pictures this model seems bigger than the previous, and may be a kind of van. Seems like something similar to the Volkswagen Budd-e Concept in a few lines. What is clear from Volkswagen is that it will be a model “revolutionary” and mark “a new era in mobility“.
Another thing confirmed in the new prototype is to bring the platform MEB. This modular platform for the electric drift of the MQB and already debuted in the previous I. D. Concept. Also that may be fully autonomous, as it will be equipped with a series of laser scanners, cameras, ultrasonic sensors and radars. It would be enough to push a button for that the steering wheel was hidden and began to roll only.
like its brother, the Volkswagen I. D. Concept, will also be powered electrically. In this case you will have two electric motors (we assume that one located on each axis) and you get to have awd. We still don’t know your autonomy, but there is talk that it could reach 500 miles. To view and confirm all of this information we will have to wait to January 9, when will start the Detroit motor show.
