By now we all know Volkswagen is shifting focus to electric vehicles. As the focus shifts, the company has taken wraps off its third ID series concept vehicle ahead of the Shanghai Motor Show. Dubbed the ID Crozz, this marks the first crossover variant of the electric car series.
Like the previous two ID concepts, the ID Crozz is based on Volkswagen’s MEB architecture, which will underpin all of the brand’s electric vehicles once they head into production. The Crozz is supposedly previewing the company’s planned third battery-electric vehicle, which is slated to be a crossover vehicle.
VW says the Crozz design is inspired by SUVs and coupes, hence its slopped roof-line and fairly steeply raked rear window. Despite the slopped greenhouse, VW is calling the interior design of the Crozz an “open space” theme.
Part of the openness is stemming from the actual MEB platform itself. The battery rests very low into the floor, lowering the center of gravity and allowing designers to better leverage interior space. Speaking of the battery, this particular concept is propelled by a 302 horsepower electric motor. VW claims it can achieve up to 311 miles of range using the European cycle as a measurement.
