  • VW plans 2022 release for I.D. VIZZION autonomous luxe-EV

Volkswagen has introduced a new member of the all-electric I.D. family at the Geneva Motor Show called I.D. Vizzion - a striking, lengthy all-electric saloon boasting full level five autonomous features. Of course, its introduction as a manually-driven vehicle does promise a degree of actual excitement, even if the no-steering-wheel version shows up a few years later.

The interface is a virtual ring over which helps you communicate with the vehicle and other digital devices by gesture control.

Why does it matter? .

This naturally points towards automated driving, which is an ongoing theme from previous I.D. concepts like the Buzz EV, Crozz and 2016 original.

Should you buy it? .

The I.D. Vizzion is based on Volkswagen's freshly developed modular electrification toolkit (MEB), which will be the basis of 15 fully electric cars by 2025, Volkswagen claims. The front wheels are powered by a 75kW motor and a 150kW motor will power the rear that will produce this all-wheel-drive sedan about 300 horsepower.

Apart from that the Volkswagen I.D. Vizzion concept also features Microsoft's HoloLens augmented reality technology which can project virtual displays in front of the passengers. VIZZION concept auto features an electric all-wheel-drive system delivering 302 horsepower and an estimated range of up to 413 miles on the European cycle. The headlamps bear resemblance to the one's on the I.D. Crozz while the large greenhouse and arching roofline make the sedan appear sleek, and the smooth lines accentuate its futuristic appearance.

The concept vehicle has no steering wheel, brake pedal, accelerator or conventional dashboard - the only nod to the past is shag pile carpet on the floor.

As well as driving itself and tailoring ventilation, media and lighting to match pre-programmed profiles, the I.D Vizzion also has the ability to ask its passengers if they would like to stop at a cafe or order drinks to go, while automatically paying for it.

The ID Vizzion sedan also can be viewed as a replacement for the Volkswagen Phaeton large luxury sedan, built on the underpinnings of Audi A8s and Bentley Continentals, which went out of production two years ago. The batteries are good for 413 miles (665 km) of driving on the European cycle. Because of the electric drivetrain and mounting the battery pack beneath the floor, the I.D. Vizzion maximizes the passenger cabin while minimizing the front and rear overhangs.

That takeover, as mentioned, would be through gestures and voice commands rather than the usual wheel and pedals.

The statement continues, "To highlight its 2030 worldview, the Vizzion concept was styled with a new, sleek evolution of VW's electric vehicle DNA".
