VW Gives An Early Glimpse At Its All-Electric 360-Mile Station Wagon

With more and more countries around the world introducing future bans on petrol-powered vehicles, automobile manufacturers are preparing for the inevitable shift by showing off electric concept and prototype vehicles in an effort to generate publicity and build hype around these forthcoming EVs. In recent weeks, Volkswagen has been on a streak, releasing what is now the seventh addition to the brand’s ID. family of electric concept cars with the ID. Space Vizzion, which, according to VW, is reportedly slated to enter production toward the tail-end of 2021.

Powering the Vizzion’s rear-wheel drive is a 275hp, rear-mounted electric motor drawing energy from an 82kWh battery pack that affords a reported 367-mile range — a feat that’s no doubt helped along by the concept’s slippery 0.24 drag coefficient. The Vizzion shares ample aesthetic traits with existing VW offerings, looking like a futuristic Jetta or Passat station wagon with LED matrix headlights, an LED strip taillight with a horizontal diamond pattern that matches the opening in the car’s grill, and flush, handle-less doors with a simple touch-to-open function. Inside, the car is upholstered in a faux two-tone leather comprised of polyurethane and apple skins and waste. There’s also a 15.6” touchscreen in the center console supplemented by an augmented reality HUD for the driver.
