It looks like Volkswagen is well on its way to completing its all-electric I.D. family, with a leaked presentation revealing the company’s plans to introduce two additional models in the next five years.
We’ve already seen the I.D, I.D. Crozz and I.D. Buzz concepts, all of which are planned to go into production. In the new image (below) posted by AutoBlog.NL, however, it appears there will be two additional EV models in the pipeline set for release between 2020 and 2022 – one being a sporty offering.
It also appears certain models will be reserved for select markets, with the two new Volkswagen I.D. family members set to be exclusive to the Chinese and US markets.
The production versions of the I.D. hatchback and the I.D. Cross (nee Crozz) look set to make an appearance in Europe, with the US to miss out – at least initially. Meanwhile, the I.D Buzz EV people mover has a ‘to be determined’ label.
It’s unknown what form the I.D Lounge will take, though it’s likely that it will be a larger, comfort-focused, perhaps luxurious model that appears to be another crossover-type vehicle going by the teaser image in the company’s presentation slide – which would better suit the tastes of China and North America.
On the other hand, the I.D AEROe looks to be some sort of sporty liftback or shooting brake. It could potentially be something along the lines of the upcoming Arteon.

All I.D models will be underpinned by the company’s new ‘MEB‘ modular platform specifically for electric vehicles, with pure-electric driving ranges of up to 600 kilometres.
Volkswagen has already announced its plans to be a major player in the EV market by the year 2025, with sales targeting 1 million units globally per annum.
It’s too early to know which of the I.D. models will make their way to Australia, if any. For now, we’ll have to wait for the I.D. hatch to make it to market – which should be around the 2019-2020 mark.
