  • Frankfurt sick notes- why so many manufacturers were a no-show at IAA 2017

Volkswagen has revealed the next stage of its electric vehicle plans with the unveiling of an updated version of the I.D.

While a "CleanAir" system always ensures a supply of clean air in the interior, regardless of ambient conditions, according to Volkswagen.

"Our task is to make modern technology available to many people". Additionally, the I.D. Crozz wears slightly redesigned headlamps over the Shanghai concept, though it is largely similar.

BMW Group introduced the i3 compact electric vehicle in 2013 and today, at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, the company unveiled its future steps in the world of electromobility.

VW also announced it is now looking into battery technology, tackling the issue of battery range, especially as VW's fleet alone will need 150 gigawatt hours of ion batteries by 2025.

Loading is made easy by voice activated sliding rear doors that fully retract back to the rear, and front doors that open to a 90-degree angle. Automakers are also searching for ways to adapt to a future in which people find ways of getting from one place to another without necessarily owning a auto, such as car-sharing or ride-hailing through smartphone apps.

Set to hit dealerships by 2020, the I.D. Crozz concept is said to be a cross between an SUV and a four-door coupe. With no B-pillar in the way, this provides plenty of room to see into the cabin. It will have a range of 500 kilometers using the wildly optimistic NEDC.

An 80% charge is reportedly possible using a 150 kW charger - of which precious few exist at the moment.

In short, Volkswagen now has nothing to offer customers who might be interested in a Tesla Model 3 and won't until that vehicle has been in production for 3 full years.

The electric Mini, which will be assembled in Oxford, will go on sale in 2019. Americans are gaga for crossovers. Yes, Volkswagen is investing 23.9 billion dollars for research and development of electric mobility.

While the internal combustion engine has not ceased to exist, it is expected to be converted into a complete electric model, as the firm continues exploration into all energy sources, thereby inching closer to a major electric vehicle adoption in the near future. That is even though current electric models do not enjoy high sales because of limited range, higher price, and a lack of fast-charging stations.
