Volkswagen has unveiled a reworked version of the ID Crozz concept car at the Frankfurt motor show, confirming the high riding crossover will go into production in 2020 as an integral part of the German car maker’s Strategy 2025 electric car offensive.
Originally revealed at the Shanghai motor show in April, the latest incarnation of the ID Crozz receives altered front end styling which, according to Volkswagen brand chairman Herbert Diess, brings it more in line with the definitive production version than the original concept.
"As early as 2020 we aim to sell 100,000 all-electric Volkswagens [per year]. But this is just the beginning. By 2025, annual sales could increase ten-fold to one million vehicles," said Diess. The firm has already shown ID hatchback and ID Buzz concepts, which will lead to production models. Diess said the new electric car line-up will be offered alongside traditional combustion engine and hybrid powered Volkswagen models.
The ID Crozz is a crossover that aims to combine the dynamic lines of a modern day sportscar together with the all terrain capability of a dedicated off-roader. Featuring two conventional front hinged doors up front and a pair of cantilever style doors at the rear, it is said to offer interior space on a par with the Tiguan Allspace – a new long wheelbase version of Volkswagen’s best selling SUV model, together with a claimed 515-litres of luggage capacity.
The revised ID Crozz has the same dimensions as the earlier version: it is 4625mm long, 1891mm wide and 1609mm high. The styling update includes revised headlamp graphics with U-shaped LED projector units and an illuminated horizontal element. It will have a wheelbae of 2773mm.
