Volkswagen teases new EV in design sketches

Ahead of the Paris motor show, Volkswagen revealed design sketches of its new electric car concept. The EV is bound to be revealed next week at the show and the sketches point towards it being a five-door hatchback. The company proclaims that the car will have an impressive range of around 400 km in a single quick charge.

The sketches further reveal a sliding rear door and futuristic lighting. The production version is speculated to have the Volkswagen’s newly developed “Modular Electric Kit (MEB)” which was specifically developed for upcoming electric vehicles from the manufacturer. It is apparent that the vehicle will be brimming with technology and the expected dimensions of the vehicle will be similar to the Golf. But since the EV gets little overhangs in the exterior design and a smart battery packing, the inside space will be as good as that of the Passat.

The project in-charge, Christian Senger, said, “A range of 400 km is adequate for everyday use. The car will also use a conventional, mainly steel, body. The construction will be the same as today. There won’t be any radical body concepts."

While still a concept, this new EV from the Paris show is intended to go into production in 2019. It is one of the five electric Volkswagens the company has in the pipeline for the coming years which includes crossover, luxury sedan, a sports car, and an MPV. The German manufacturer anticipates selling one million (10 lakh) electric vehicles by the year 2025.
