The Volkswagen I.D. Vizzion is an all-electric sedan based on the MEB platform, and part of the I.D. series. It was first shown at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. A production version of the vehicle based on this prototype will be launched no sooner than 2022.
As with the first three I.D. electric vehicle concepts — the I.D., I.D. CROZZ and I.D. BUZZ — the I.D. VIZZION previews a model slated to enter production by 2022. But the I.D. VIZZION concept in Geneva highlights Volkswagen’s vision for a time further in the future, when so-called Level 5 full-autonomous driving becomes possible.
As with other MEB-based models, the I.D. VIZZION has all-wheel drive provided by electric motors on the front and rear axle, producing a total of 225kW (302hp).
Built off the MEB electric vehicle platform, the I.D. VIZZION combines voice- and gesture-control technology and artificial intelligence software.
The I.D. VIZZION is the first Volkswagen brand vehicle ever built without a steering wheel or pedals — everywhere the concept car could go, it would do so autonomously. Designers aimed to eliminate seams and obstructions for passengers, from doors that have no B-pillar to the window glass that lies flush to the bodywork.
