De North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit is de gelegenheid voor Volkswagen om een nieuw lid van de I.D.-familie voor te stellen. De I.D. Buzz is multifunctioneel en 100% elektrisch, en zal ook autonoom kunnen rijden in de toekomst. Een lichte druk op het VW-logo volstaat om het stuurwiel in het dashboard te laten verdwijnen. Terwijl de bestuurder zich ontspant, controleren de radars, lasers en andere ultrasone sensoren voortdurend de weginfrastructuur en zijn gebruikers.
Icon of a new era with electric drive: Volkswagen presents another model of the I.D. family
Show car has two electric motors and all-wheel drive
Design icon features multi-functional, flexible interior
Wolfsburg, 22 December 2016 – The era of electric mobility begins. At the
North American International Auto Show (NAIAS, 8 to 22 January) in
Detroit, Volkswagen is presenting a new model of the I.D. family – a multifunctional
vehicle of a new era. The concept vehicle forges links between
the legendary origins of the Volkswagen brand and its electrifying future.
Like the I.D., this concept is also based on the Modular Electric Drive Kit
(MEB), and so it shows the potential and bandwidth of the MEB.
Since the presentation of the I.D. at the Paris International Motor Show in
September of this year, these initials have stood primarily for a new
generation of fully connected, all-electric vehicles from Volkswagen. The
I.D. also stands for clarity in design language, pure form, honest character,
authentic emotionality – and of course an ideal spatial concept as well as a
quality in details that is typically Volkswagen.
This I.D. concept vehicle will also be able to drive fully autonomously in the
future. A light press on the Volkswagen logo, and the electrically retractable
steering wheel disappears into the cockpit. While the driver relaxes, laser
scanners, ultrasonic and radar sensors and cameras monitor other road
users and the surroundings.
The I.D. concept vehicle in Detroit forges links between the legendary
origins of the Volkswagen brand and its electrifying future. Its overall
concept is revolutionary. It combines ample space for travel with a long
electric driving range. A new feeling of freedom – with zero emissions. A
new epoch of mobility.
