The sleek Volkswagen ID Space Vizzion, unveiled today in Los Angeles, is powered by a 275-horsepower, rear- mounted electric motor with power supplied by an 82 kWh lithium-ion battery. Power electronics on the front and rear axle control the flow of high-voltage energy between the motor and the battery, converting direct current (DC) stored in the battery into alternating current (AC). Aside from the 275-hp rear-mounted motor, the ID. SPACE VIZZION can also be fitted with a 101-hp coaxial drive, which gives the vehicle all-wheel-drive capability and a system output of 335 hp, good for a 0-60 mph sprint in 5.0 seconds and and an electronically limited top speed of 109 mph. What really stands out is its 300-mile range on a single charge. Read more for additional pictures and information.
