Volkswagen I.D. CROZZ Electric Concept CUV

The Volkswagen I.D. CROZZ four-door coupe is VW's first electrically powered crossover utility vehicle kicking off a new fleet of electric vehicles that will start full production in 2020. The I.D. CROZZ has two electric motors developing 302 horsepower, a 201 horsepower motor at the back and a 101 horsepower coaxial drive system at the front, to directly drive their respective axles. Top speed is 112 mph and it can cover up to 311 miles on one battery charge. Using a 150 kW (DC) fast charger, the battery can be 80 percent recharged within 30 minutes. The 83 kWh lithium-ion battery is housed in the CUV's floor. The I.D. CROZZ can also be permanently driven with all-wheel drive. The I.D. CROZZ concept car already has an on-demand autopilot system that in the fully automated 'I.D. Pilot' mode retracts the multifunctional steering wheel into the dashboard and fuses with the digitalized instruments to form a single unit. In both automatic and manual mode the driver also receives speed and navigation information via an augmented reality head-up display. The I.D. CROZZ is 182.1 inches long, with a 109.2-inch wheelbase, and is 74.4 inches wide and 63.3 inches tall. The concept car offers similar interior space to the all-new 2018 long-wheelbase Tiguan, but is 3 inches shorter, 1.9 inches lower and 2.2 inches wider.
