This is the futuristic concept car Volkswagen is unveiling in a few weeks
You've seen the ID Buzz and the ID Buggy. Volkswagen is about to show off another concept car. All will be revealed the week before Thanksgiving at the Los Angels Auto Show but they've set the stage revealing a few facts ahead of time.
The ID Space Vizzion is Volkswagen's take on a zero-emissions vehicle. The company says that it's built for "a new era, new thinking, and new mobility" and that "is a crossover of tomorrow". Still, it looks much like a traditional wagon.

"So far, with our ID. family, we have shown what is possible with electric vehicles in each known car category," said Klaus Bischoff, Head of Volkswagen Design. "With the ID Space Vizzion we create a new, fully electric segment."
Volkswagen is touting the concept's ability to combine the aerodynamics of a grand touring car with the spaciousness of an SUV. With a five-door-like visual profile, the ID Space Vizzion is a more realistic look at the future of Volkswagen than what the ID Buggy offered, giving the markets a tangible look at the future of the company, which has been touting its future electrified powertrains and new platforms for the last few years.

The German automaker has built the car on its Modular Electric Drive Matrix (MEB). MEB is designed to allow for long driving ranges, dynamic performance, and digital networking.
VW has given the model 300 miles of range.

Its completely digitalized cockpit consists of appointments that are made from sustainable raw materials including AppleSkin, a vegan alternative to leather.

The ID Space Vizzion isn't just a concept. It's a look at a model that Volkswagen will mass produce, presumably under another name, in late 2021. It will make its way to North America, Europe, and China in different variations.
