"With the ID. SPACE VIZZION we create a new, fully electric segment", says Klaus Bischoff, Head of Volkswagen Design.

On Thursday, Volkswagen announced that its electric ID line will soon be gaining another member: The ID Space Vizzion.

Inside, passengers are bathed in light flooding through the glass panoramic roof, and LED mood lighting is installed along the insides of the doors. Also, VW has started pre-production at its new plant in China, in Anting, near Shanghai, and back in Germany, the Group's Braunschweig plant ramps up batteries production.

Next in the pipeline is the ID Space Vizzion, which VW describes as a vehicle with the aerodynamic characteristics of a sleek grand tourer and the spaciousness of an SUV. The battery-electric station wagon is to be presented as a production vehicle at the end of 2021.

As for drivetrain technology, not much is being said beyond noting its "aerodynamic exterior design helps reach range of up to 300 miles", according to a statement.

Other point worth noting: the vehicle will be offered to consumers in North America as well as in Europe and China.


But that's set to change in 2021 when VW will offer an all-electric estate auto, which will be based on the MEB electric platform.

The interior will sport a "completely digitized cockpit", with parts made from sustainable raw materials, including an artificial leather called AppleSkin.

The ID. Space Vizzion will probably hit VW showrooms in 2021, and expect similar EV powertrains to all the other EVs VW is planning to chuck at us as it tries to make everyone and his dog buy an electric auto.

With the start of the production of the ID.3 electric hatchback, VW's goal of full electrification has begun. The plant sets the next milestone in Volkswagen's global electrification strategy.

"The Volkswagen Group projects a total volume of 22 million all-electric cars worldwide by 2028, with more than 50 percent of that from China". Land use has been greatly improved, which means that far less land and built-up area is required than in a standard factory. At the Braunschweig components plant, the Group is now ramping up production of battery systems. Buzz (van-based MPV), the ID.
