Volkswagen presented its first stand-alone car concept at the Geneva Motor Show this Monday. The ID Vizzion follows the ID line of electric cars of the brand, but does not count on a steering wheel.
According to the company, the user can control the car through the voice command and the virtual assistant of the vehicle. In addition, the digital ecosystem can identify and remember the preferences of each person who uses the car. “The concept car directs, guides and navigates in an autonomous way in the traffic, allowing passengers to freely structure the time during the trip,” says the statement from the automaker.
The vehicle reaches a top speed of 180 km / h, with lithium batteries of 111 kWh having a range of 665 km, when considering regenerative braking technology – a device that transforms kinetic energy released during braking in electricity.
It is not yet clear when the stand-alone car will begin to be marketed, but Volkswagen claims that by 2025 it will introduce 20 electric models on the market. “From 2020, the [line] ID will launch an electric car in the compact class; followed, in short intervals, by a new electric SUV – the ID CROZZ 3 – and the ID BUZZ 4, which is a spacious MPV. “
