Volkswagen I.D. Crozz Crossover Concept Debuts at 2017 Shanghai Auto Show

As we've noted before, this week's Shanghai auto show is turning out to be a whole lot better for new green cars and concepts than last week's NY auto show. This time at the Shanghai Auto Show, the German carmaker has revealed the ID Crozz. Production of the Crozz, which supposedly will start in 2020, will help the automaker achieve that figure, probably.

With Volkswagen's ambitious plans to sell one million EVs per year worldwide by 2025, the brand will need a product that appeals to tree huggers and trendsetters alike as well as to the throngs of everyday shoppers simply looking for a versatile and efficient vehicle they can commute in.

What's new on the Volkswagen ID Crozz concept?

The E-Motion concept, with an all-electric powertrain, is claimed to be capable of 0-62mph in less than 4.0sec, but has a range of over 310 miles.

Volkswagen claims that the new auto will produce up to 306hp and will be capable of hitting 112mph, meanwhile, using a fast charger, the batteries can be charged up to 80% of their capacity in just half an hour. In addition to the minivan and SUV already previewed by the respective I.D. Buzz and I.D Crozz concepts, VW is thought to be planning a sedan and sporty coupe. The battery is even fully integrated in the vehicle floor.

Smart Sustainability - Volkswagen is advancing the development of innovative electric vehicle models for high-volume production. Also like other I.D. concepts, the Crozz's interior is an open concept, with seats that rearrange, and in this case, can fold up like a cinema seat to allow for more storage inside.

VW said Tuesday that electric vehicles would remain in "start-up niche" mode in 2020 but quickly reach "high-volume full production by the middle of the next decade".

VW's display at the Shanghai show includes the first public presentation of the I.D. Crozz crossover concept.

Two electric motors make a combined 302 horsepower and help the I.D. Crozz achieve a top speed of 112 miles per hour.

Design language mirrors earlier I.D. concepts, with similar front and rear LED treatments and blue lighting.

The I.D. Crozz Crossover concept will be a sporty looking and zero emission vehicle.

It follows on from the I.D.

VW China CEO Jochem Heizmann also stated the company was seeking to quickly resolve concerns amongst some Chinese dealerships of its Audi AG vehicles over a tie-up with SAIC Motor.

In both manual and automatic driving modes, the driver receives speed and navigation information via an augmented reality 3D head-up display.
