Volkswagen ID CROZZ updated, gets ready for 2020 production

Volkswagen ID CROZZ updated, gets ready for 2020 production

Resplendent in new Hibiscus Red Metallic paint, and highlighted by five-spoke 21-inch alloy wheels, the I.D. Crozz II is more refined than the first concept shown at the Shanghai motor show in April.

New York Times reports that the Chinese have always set the trend in technological advancements through their high-speed trains and wind turbines.

It remains unclear whether the self-driving system Volkswagen covers in some detail will make it into production within two or three years, though clearly it attracts attention to the revised concept.

Future of the automobile industry lies in the electric vehicle, and major #automobile manufacturers want to tie up with Chinese manufacturers to capture the fast growing markets.

In November 2016, the group announced its ambition to be the world's biggest electric carmaker by 2025, slashing 30,000 jobs as it frees up cash for investment in research and development into new technologies.

"One thing is clear: The Golf of the future must once again be a people's vehicle!" We have to wait until 2022 for the I.D. Buzz (middle).

The last mission lasted nearly two years and ended with a May touchdown at the runway formerly used by Nasa's space shuttles. About 10 minutes later, the first stage of the rocket came in for a picture-perfect landing back on a pad at the Cape.

Lewis said earlier if she wins should would donate all her prize money to the Hurricane Harvey flood victims in Texas. Open champion Jordan Spieth had seven birdies in a 65 and is in a share of 10th place only four shots back.

Boot space is a family-friendly 515 litres and the rear doors slide backwards opening up a pillarless side allowing for easy access. A menu provides information on the quality of the air inside the cabin, while the system ensures it remains clean.

The new Volkswagen I.D. Crozz is a crossover of an SUV and a four door coupe, it certainly looks interesting from the photos.

Other new features over the original concept include an interactive voice control that can be used to open or close all doors, and to activate or deactivate the fully automated "I.D".

Up to the point it admitted in 2015 to cheating on diesel emissions tests in the U.S., Volkswagen was slow to embrace electric auto technology.

Now, at this year's IAA, Volkswagen is launching the next stage with "Roadmap E" - giving an added boost to product planning to massively accelerate the electrification of the Group-wide vehicle portfolio.

Over the a year ago, it's unveiled three different Volkswagen ID electric-car concepts, two of them thinly disguised versions of future production models for 2019 and 2020.
