Volkswagen Electric Vehicle Concepts – 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show

Three electric concept cars that will start hitting showrooms by late 2019. The I.D. hatchback, the I.D. Buzz mini-bus and the I.D. Crozz crossover are spearheading Volkswagen ’s major move into electrified cars. At the L.A. Auto Show, all three will appear together for the first time. The I.D.s “mark the start of a design and technology revolution that is going to change individual mobility and the Volkswagen brand forever,” VW design head Klaus Bischoff puts it. One could argue that the emergence of Tesla, and VW’s diesel-cheating scandal marked the start of this revolution, but why be a downer? The trio does indeed mark the bold beginning of a risky strategy to push Volkswagen into a near future that it bets will be dominated by electric, connected, autonomous cars.
