Volkswagen looks pretty serious about its plan to do away with diesel models and instead take the world over to the electric side. To start the journey, it launched the I.D sub brand and has now given us a proper preview of the things to come with the ID hatchback, Buzz microbus and now the ID Crozz crossover.
The ID Cross combines VW’s electric quest with the hottest growing segment in the global car market- SUVs and crossovers, and in this case, it’s a coupe SUV. There is the minimalist VW grill less electric face, large rear overhang, big wheels and contrast coloured roof. The interior is a minimalist setup and has seating for five. What is noticeable is a nearly empty dashboard which gets only a single touchscreen to control all the functions. This car is expected to get all of VWs latest autonomous driving technology as well as safety packages.
This crossover is underpinned by the German automaker’s new MEB platform and is powered by two electric motors and battery packs that give it an equivalent output of 302bhp and a range of 500km! On top of this, you can also plug it into a 150Kw charger that can you get 80 per cent of the total juice in 30 mins.
There is a lot riding on these new wave of electric cars and this ID Crozz is a glimpse of what we can expect from Volkswagen in the future.
