From long ago we know that Volkswagen presented a prototype electric coming soon. They themselves have described it as a revolutionary model and the event chosen for your presentation is the Paris. For the moment we have only been able to get to know some of your parts through a few teasers and now we see how it will be their appearance in a few sketches. It will be the precursor of a production model that will arrive in the medium term.
As already imagined, his size could be something like the Volkswagen Golf, although there will be differences. For example, its interior could be as large as that of the Volkswagen Passat and this can be achieved with such details as the rear door sliding. This solution made mpvs provide entry to the cab. In addition, thanks to the panorama windshield that extends through the roof will have a bright interior.
Although in the roof also appears one of the most mysterious of the concept. Four circular shapes lit in blue (one in each corner) that we still do not know for which they will serve. It could be some kind of radar or system to the driving autonomous. In terms of design, the prototype has a very futuristic, with the front and rear overhangs are very short, in addition to a few tires of large size.
What is clear is that its propulsion system will be 100% electric. Although not yet unveiled many details, will settle on the platform MEB, a modular platform for electric derived from the MQB. This model will have an autonomy of between 400 and 600 kilometers in cycle NEDC, reaching out to Tesla. The production model could be ready for 2019-2020 and that would be the first of an onslaught of electric vehicles.
