Five new electric cars coming from Volkswagen

Volkswagen is planning to shift its entire focus onto electric vehicles for the future. The company will launch five new electric cars in the next few years.

The five EVs in question are the ID, ID Cross, ID Lounge, ID AeroE and the ID Buzz. The first of these launches will happen sometime in 2019 and the entire line-up will be on the roads by 2022. This new launch strategy is in place so that Volkswagen can sell a million cars by 2025. 

These electric cars are based on the German manufacturers’ new MEB platform. The ID Concept which has been codenamed e-Golf is equipped with a 125kW electric motor that will have a driving range of 400-600kms. This EV is expected to do 0-100kmph in less than eight seconds. The ID Cross will be launched after the ID hits the market. The concept version of the ID Cross was showcased at at the Shanghai motor show this year and had two electric motors powered by an 83kWh lithium-ion battery. The all-wheel-drive concept had a combined output of 225kW and a range up to 500km.

Volkswagen says that their future electric cars will be priced on par with the combustion engine cars. Over the last few years, Tesla has managed to prove that electric cars can be fast as well as have a really good driving range. The Indian government has pledged to have only electric cars on Indian roads by 2030.
