Volkswagen I.D. CROZZ concept debuts in Shanghai

After the premieres of the I.D. (Paris, 2016) and I.D. BUZZ (Detroit, 2017), the I.D. CROZZ now follows as the third member of the I.D. family – a new generation of zero emission vehicles with long driving range, charismatic electric mobility design and a new interior world.

The I.D. CROZZ was conceptualised as a sporty, interactively designed zero- emission all-rounder – with electric all-wheel drive that is equally impressive in the urban environment as it is on the tracks of an active lifestyle. The I.D. CROZZ delivers power of 225 kW, has a top speed of 180 km/h and can cover up to 500 kilometres (NEDC) on one charge. The high-performance battery can be charged to 80% of its energy capacity in 30 minutes using a fast-charging system (at 150 kW DC power). The concept car switches over to the fully autonomous ‘I.D. Pilot’ mode when the driver touches the VW badge on the steering wheel for three seconds – and then the I.D. CROZZ drives with autopilot. All of the concept vehicle’s instruments and controls have been implemented fully digitally. A smartphone on wheels. The most important information is projected into the driver’s visual field by augmented reality. Gesture control is gaining in importance. A new light shade in the transparent panoramic sunroof is even activated by gesture control; the shade offers a new form of interior and exterior ambient lighting. Meanwhile, a new CleanAir system guarantees good air quality in the vehicle – in all outdoor conditions.

The zero emission design of the I.D. CROZZ expresses its electric mobility DNA in every component. One dominant visual characteristic is the light signature for Volkswagen electric mobility. The light elements – C-shaped LED daytime running lights and variably controllable LED headlights – merge to form a front end with electronic moving ‘eyes’ (‘Interactive Spotlight’). In ‘I.D. Pilot’ mode, these ‘eyes’ communicate with other road users.

The I.D. CROZZ is more compact than Volkswagen’s latest production SUV, the New Tiguan L (China) which is also produced as the Tiguan Allspace (Europe). And yet the CUV provides just as much space. This is because the I.D. CROZZ is based on the new, innovative, next-generation architecture for Volkswagen electric vehicles. The suspension and drivetrain modules are positioned far to the outsides of the vehicle and exhibit very compact construction. The battery is even fully integrated in the vehicle floor. The seat configuration offers great flexibility. It creates space that can be put to optimal use – a generously proportioned and newly designed ‘Open Space’, which exceeds typical class standards. The rear? It has premium class dimensions. Want to take your bike away with you for the weekend without having to mount a cycle rack? No problem. Simply slide it crosswise into the rear seating area. Fold-up rear seats and doors that (electrically) open very wide make this possible.
