Another peek before Geneva
Volkswagen has teased the autonomous, luxurious ID Vizzion concept again, ahead of its debut in Geneva next week.
Posted on social media overnight, the video teases a new type of user interface which, based on what we can see, appears to be gesture control.
Although it's a short clip, the video also makes clear the fact there's no steering wheel or pedals. As we learnt last week, the Vizzion is a "fully automated premium-class saloon" – the lack of driver controls shouldn't come as a surprise.
Power comes from an electric motor making 225kW of power, good for a 180km/h top speed. There's a 111kWh lithium-ion battery under the floor, and Volkswagen claims the car will cover 665km on a full charge.
When it launches, the coupe-meets-sedan Vizzion will be the fourth electric vehicle in the VW ID line. The company wants to offer 20 pure-electric vehicles by 2025, headed by the ID hatchback and ID Crozz. Kombi fans, the ID Buzz is also headed for production.
The ID Vizzion will launch at the Geneva motor show. CarAdvice will be on the ground covering all the action, so stay tuned!
