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.
Inside, an Augmented Reality (AR) headup display replaces the traditional cockpit, which now becomes a secondary mini display showing only basic information. All information, entertainment, comfort, online functions, and vehicle settings are grouped together on a 15.6-inch touchscreen display that appears to hover in mid-air. The concept car has four seats, but a production vehicle with three rear seats is also possible. Between the seats, there is a large fold-out center console with storage areas, drink holders and even USB-C ports.
The infotainment system of tomorrow not only offers totally intuitive operation, but also a high level of customization coupled with interactive online support. The Infotainment system in the ID. SPACE VIZZION uses an online connectivity unit with integrated eSIM to network with the online features and services from Volkswagen We, We Connect, and We Connect Plus. The ID. SPACE VIZZON recognizes the driver on the basis of the vehicle key or mobile key and adjusts to their settings before heading off. The driver can go to a central home screen to set up personalized touch-activated fields (tiles) on three different levels and use these to control all the infotainment system functions,” said Volkswagen in a press release.
