The Volkswagen Group holds some of the most ambitious plans of any electric automaker. They plan to have 70 new electric vehicles throughout their many brands within the next decade. It is not just talk, as the automaker also expect to produce 22 million electric cars in that time-frame, which is definitely possible since the Volkswagen Group sells over 10 million cars annually.
Some cars in the Volkswagen Group already announced include: Audi e-tron, Audi e-tron Sportback, Audi Q4 e-tron, Audi e-tron GT, Porsche Taycan, Porsche Taycan Turismo, Porsche Electric Macan, SEAT el-born, Skoda Vision E, VW NEO, VW ID Crozz, VW ID Buzz, ID Buggy, and ID Vizzion.
Nothing in terms of a full sized SUV has been announced, that is, until today. The Volkswagen ID ROOMZZ is the latest car from the ID series. The only thing we know is that it will be made available in the Chinese markets starting in 2021 and that it will come with level 4 autonomy.
“The I.D. ROOMZZ shows us what we can expect from full-size electric SUVs in the future. The puristic look emphasizes the clear function and the user experience is intuitive and natural,”
Volkswagen is entering a competitive market with the ID ROOMZZ as there are already a few SUVs available and more to come before the release of the ID ROOMZZ. The Mercedes EQC, Audi E Tron, BMW IX3, and Tesla Model S will most likely all directly compete in the space come 2021.
Volkswagen will rely on some of their stated innovations to excel in the space.
The I.D. ROOMZZ has a number of innovations on board: as its name suggests, the concept car sets trendsetting impulses when it comes to variability of the vehicle interior, boasting completely new seat configurations, high-quality materials and customizable light. What is more, the IQ.DRIVE systems are brought together in the I.D. ROOMZZ:in I.D. Pilot mode, the vehicle can be driven autonomously without an active driver (level 4).
