Los Angeles, CA: The countdown to a breakthrough in electric mobility has
started. The year 2020 marks a turning point. Volkswagen is forging ahead
into this new era with the development of a fresh generation of innovative
electric vehicles – the avant-garde I.D. Family. Now more launch dates for
the new Volkswagen zero-emission vehicles are being announced. It all
begins in 2020, with the compact and visionary I.D. – a four-door car with
a large boot lid. Now the time frame for the next member of the I.D. Family
has also been confirmed: the I.D. CROZZ1 – an all-wheel drive,
zero-emission SUV, which will also launch in 2020. As a surprise,
Volkswagen presented an advanced and visually more striking version of this
concept at the IAA in Frankfurt this past September: the I.D. CROZZ II1.
This past August in Pebble Beach, California, Volkswagen and Volkswagen
Commercial Vehicles also announced that the zero-emission van, the I.D.
BUZZ1 – a reinterpretation of the legendary Bulli – will be launched in
2022. New all-electric architecture as common platform. All I.D. concept
vehicles share the new all-electric architecture – developed as a common
architecture – and the unique design DNA for electric mobility.

Other shared characteristics include zero-emission driving ranges from 5001
to 6001 kilometres, a lounge-like spatial concept ('Open Space'),
digitalisation of all displays and controls, and integration of an optional
fully automated driving mode ('I.D. Pilot'). By 2025 one million I.D.
models per year. Group-wide, Volkswagen AG will be launching over 30 new
electric models by 2025. The Volkswagen brand models – I.D., I.D. BUZZ and
I.D. CROZZ – are three of the most important high-volume models of this
electric mobility campaign. Dr Herbert Diess, Chairman of the Volkswagen
Brand Board of Management: "The electric mobility campaign is a central
component of Volkswagen's strategy for the future. As early as 2020, the
first year of our electric mobility campaign, we aim to sell 100,000
all-electric Volkswagen cars, and we are setting a target of one million
vehicles by 2025 – a ten-fold increase."
