Volkswagen to take Tesla head-on. VW's I D will be $ 7000 -$8000 cheaper than Tesla's Model 3!

VW 's upcoming first all-electric vehicle built from the ground up, codenamed I.D. Concept, to take on Tesla’s Model 3.

Specs-wise, it appears to be competitive with the Model 3 on paper, but they never gave a precise price range until now.

Volkswagen chief strategist Thomas Sedran said that they were aiming for the vehicle to be about $7,000 to $8,000 cheaper than the Model 3, which would mean about 25,000 euros

Volkswagen at IAA 2017: Preview of the further developed I.D. CROZZ
Volkswagen plans new electric vehicle with a 500 km range-updatedvwidcrozz.jpg


New version's design points more towards a production model
Volkswagen is advancing the development of a new generation of innovative electric vehicles and will be presenting a further developed version of the I.D. CROZZ next week at the IAA (International Motor Show, 12-24 September 2017) in Frankfurt (D).


Quote:
The redesigned concept car is based on the all-electric architecture and is characterised by a clean, powerful design. The front and rear end designs, in particular, point more in the direction of a production model. Also defining its styling are the wide bonnet with the front wings contoured in large radii and the roof whose exterior surface is finished in high-gloss black. The highly contemporary SUV look continues into the interior thanks to its compact electric drive and integration of its lithium-ion battery in the vehicle floor, which results in an ‘open space' – a lounge-like spatial concept with four variable individual seats

VW I.D. CROZZ II Revealed, Previews the production model.




Quote:
Designed to preview the 2020 production model, the I.D. Crozz II concept is an electric crossover which is described as an "enhanced version" of the original I.D. Crozz that was shown at the Shanghai Auto Show earlier this year.
Quote:
Power is provided by two electric motors which produce a combined output of 301 hp (225 kW). This enables the all-wheel drive crossover to hit a top speed of 180 km/h (111 mph) and travel up to 500 km (310 miles) on a single charge. When the battery is depleted, it can be given an 80% charge in just 30 minutes thanks to a fast charging system.

Since the I.D. Crozz II concept was envisioned as a high-tech crossover, it comes equipped with an fully automated driving system. It uses four laser scanners on the roof as well as ultrasonic sensors, radar sensors, side area view cameras, and a front camera.
