Volkswagen ID Vizzion concept to be unveiled at upcoming Beijing Motor Show
Volkswagen has confirmed that it will unveil its ID Vizzion electric vehicle at the Beijing Motor Show to be organised in April. The first deliveries of the Volkswagen ID Vizzion will begin next year with China as the priority. Volkswagen brand head Ralf Brandstatter has stated the new electric vehicle will come in the form of a saloon before an estate-bodied version based on the ID Space Vizzion concept arrives.
It is being expected that the new Volkswagen ID Vizzion, which is being developed under the codename Aero B, will be an electric equivalent of the Passat model that featured an internal combustion engine. This new Volkswagen EV will be based on the company's MEB architecture which is a modular platform meant for electric vehicles. The new electric saloon after hitting the market may compete with the likes of the Tesla Model 3 and Polestar 2.
