Here is a very exciting concept car from the stables of Volkswagen. Scheduled to launch in 2020, the new Volkswagen I.D. Vizzion would be all-electric as one out of the company's lineup of I.D. model ranges.
Already, other models like the Crozz, the Buzz and the revamped I.D. have been unveiled with their respective prototypes. While it is geared towards the nearest future, the new Vizzion would be autonomous with a Level 5 autonomy - that's about the highest level in terms of self-driving capability of a vehicle.
The I.D. Vizzion will be operated through augmented reality according to the manufacturer. Passengers can use voice and gesture controls to send out instructions based on a “virtual interface” made visible by Microsoft Hololens glasses.
The vehicle is powered by a 111kW-hour lithium-ion battery located underneath. Front and rear wheels contain electric motor each which puts the total power at 225kW or a 301 brake horsepower equivalent. Accordingly, the Vizzion will have slightly over 400-mile range on a single charge.
As for speed, it goes very quickly for 0-100 km/hr in just 6.3 seconds and with a top speed of 112 mph. Wheels are 24-inch wide.
It has a very nice interior design and aesthetic satisfaction. The on-board personal assistant offers various ‘travel modes’ which alter the position/rake of the seats, ambient lighting, infotainment features and so-on. The car can even recognise its occupants via facial recognition and adjust things accordingly.
