The Volkswagen I.D. Concept which was presented at the last Paris Show has been a prototype of great importance for the German mark. With him you deep into the world of the electric propulsion and it served as the advancement of a production model that will arrive in 2020. In the Salon of Detroit seems that they will present us a novelty that will be closely tied, it will be another prototype of the family of the I.D. Concept.
Still we do not know its name or many details, but we have already been able to see some teasers. Judging by the pictures, this model seems larger than the previous one, and can be a kind of van. We feel something similar to the Volkswagen Budd-e Concept in a few lines. What leave clear from Volkswagen is to be a “revolutionary” model and that it marked “a new era in mobility“.
Another confirmed things of the new prototype is that it will take the platform MEB. This modular platform for electric derives from the MQB and already debuted at the former I.D. Concept. Also that you can be completely autonomous, as it will be equipped with a series of laser scanners, cameras, ultrasonic and radar sensors. It is enough to press a button so that the steering wheel should be secreted and began to roll only.
Like his brother, the Volkswagen I.D. Concept, it will also be powered electrically. In this case will have two electric motors (we assume that you one located in each axis) and manages to have all-wheel drive. We do not yet know its autonomy, but talking about that it could reach the 500 kilometers. To see it and confirm this information we will have to wait on January 9, when it will start the Detroit Salon.
