Volkswagen trademarks two new monikers for its I.D. electric brand

Volkswagen trademarks two new monikers for its I.D. electric brand

Volkswagen is very serious about its electrification push and its I.D. family is growing. Having revealed three concepts under its newly-formed I.D. electric sub-brand, the German giant has now patented two new monikers as well. According to new trademark filings registered with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), VW has registered two names – I.D. Cruiser and I.D. Freeler.

However, these trademarked names give us no information about what the next I.D. vehicle will be. After the I.D. hatch, the I.D. Buzz minibus and the I.D. Crozz crossover-coupe, we can expect the new vehicles to be either an executive sedan or a full-size SUV. These vehicles will be a part of VW Group’s onslaught of 15-20 electric vehicle by the middle of the next decade. Although most of these products will be available across the globe, some of them are speculated to be focused on specific markets only.

A few months back, there were also rumours of another trademark application for the I.D. Streetmate moniker. Apart from that, there was also a leaked internal presentation which showcased a sedan and an SUV concept – called AEROe and Lounge respectively – which are expected to arrive before 2022.

In a bid to recover from its infamous diesel gate, VW is putting shoulder to the wheels with its electrification plans. The carmaker developed a special scalable electric platform for all its future electric vehicles called MEB. We hope to see the first production vehicle from the I.D. family at the turn of the decade after making appearances at major auto shows in the concept guise.
