Volkswagen ID Vizzion previews electric luxury saloon

Volkswagen ID Vizzion previews electric BMW 3 Series rival Volkswagen’s latest, Geneva-bound ID concept has been shown in official sketches and autonomous driving seems to take a top billing, since the car has no controls

Volkswagen has revealed the ID Vizzion in a series of sketches ahead of the car’s official appearance at the Geneva motor show in March. 

The saloon, a follow-up concept to the ID hatchback, ID Crozz SUV and ID Buzz Microbus concepts, shows another prong of VW’s electric assault post-Dieselgate.

Power is claimed to be 297bhp and the car maxes out at 112mph. A 111kWh lithium-ion battery pack provides a range of up to 413 miles, combined with the effect of the car’s regenerative braking. Motors front and rear power all four wheels.

It’s around 5110mm long - it's the same length as a standard-wheelbase Mercedes-Benz S-Class, although VW bills the ID Vizzion as a premium saloon. This means that the eventual production car will be a follow-up to the ill-fated Phaeton, as previously reported.
