Volkswagen has handed down a first look at its new ID Vizzion concept, ahead of a Geneva motor show debut next month.
The big sedan, complete with fashionable sloping roofline, previews the looks and technology you’d expect to see in a “fully automated premium-class saloon” from the brand.
A ‘digital chauffeur’ controls the car, which means there’s no need for a steering wheel or pedals – making it a ‘level 5’ concept. The ‘driver’ instead interacts with a virtual assistant using gesture control and voice inputs, responsible for infotainment, climate control and navigation.
There’s a 111kWh lithium-ion battery sitting under the floor, feeding an electric motor making 225kW of power. Top speed is pegged at 180km/h and, if Volkswagen is to be believed, the car will cover 665km on a full charge.
When it debuts, the Vizzion will be the fourth concept in VW’s all-electric ID series.
The company wants to offer 20 pure-electric vehicles by 2025, led by the ID and ID Crozz previewed in Paris and Shanghai respectively. Fans of the Kombi will be pleased to know an all-electric ID Buzz van will also feature in the lineup.
The ID Vizzion will launch at the Geneva motor show. CarAdvice will be on the ground covering all the action, so stay tuned!
