Volkswagen Is Hiding Some Good Mechanics in an Autonomous Concept

Volkswagen I.D. VIZZION Concept Performance Specs

Volkswagen has set itself an intense goal: 20 fully-electric cars by 2025. Now, we suspect many of these to be electric versions of the models we already see in the lineup. Ones we don’t see in the U.S., like the Up!, are also likely to get this treatment. All told, does Volkswagen have 20 vehicles in the lineup to give the electric powertrain treatment to? We won’t dig too deeply into the vehicle we can’t have, but we do know that Volkswagen will be presenting fresh designs and options in addition to the tried and true vehicles in the lineup. One such concept is the Volkswagen I.D. VIZZION, which is the fourth of the I.D. family of vehicles VW hopes to release in the coming years. Hidden within lofty goals of fresh technology and entertainment are some impressive performance specs that we hope will prove feasible.

Up to 413-mile range

Here in 2018, we mostly hear about electric vehicle rang in terms of making it past 200 miles or more. The idea of 413 miles on a single charge feels a bit out of this world, but then again, we’re talking about a vehicle that wouldn’t be released for another seven years.

A high range is important for our future road trip appeal, but what about daily driving? We’re not sure how much horsepower is needed for a vehicle that won’t have any driver controls, at least as it’s conceptually designed, but the I.D. VIZZION is envisioned to produce up to 300 ponies from its electric drivetrain and reach a top speed of 111 mph. There’s no word on fuel economy, considering it’s just a concept at this stage, but if it’s fully electric and uses regenerative braking, we imagine the figure would still be impressive.

More details on features for the Volkswagen I.D. VIZZION are sure to come out at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, so stay tuned here at the Brandon Volkswagen Blog for updates.
