Concept VW Electrifies Paris Auto Show

Autodesk VRED Professional 2016 SP1

Up to 373 Miles on a Single Charge

The new Volkswagen I.D. electric concept vehicle was the talk of the Paris Auto Show, offering range unprecedented in the electric vehicle (EV) world. With the ability to go up to 373 miles on a single charge, the VW I.D. promises to blow the top off the EV market when it begins full production for the 2020 model year. One of the reasons EVs have not sold as well as anticipated is the “range phobia” of the auto consumer. Buyers are concerned they will be stranded with no power and no means of getting home. Keep in touch with Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale to see the strides Volkswagen makes as it works to build an EV that not only solves environmental problems, but also allays buyer concerns.

Expect High Level of Automation

When the I.D. Concept car comes to fruition in 2020, you can expect that many of the functions that fall on a driver today will be completely automated. You will have your very own VW ID, a profile which automatically adjusts the seats, controls the climate and provides all your favorite radio settings and chosen lighting. All your ID settings will live in the cloud, ready to serve you as soon as you enter the vehicle. You’ll also be able to connect easily with your home, turning on the lights, setting the air conditioning to just the right temperature and even warming up the oven. Never home when the delivery man arrives? Arrange to have the parcel delivered to your new VW. If you’re not in the car, access from your Smartphone can pop the trunk to allow the parcel to be placed inside.

Mobility of Future Key to I.D. Design

“Before we first put pen to paper for the I.D. project, we debated the topic of mobility in the future at length,” according to VW design chief Klaus Bischoff. “It is clear that the care of the future, and thus the mobile space, will be a place of communication more than ever before. The Open Space in the I.D. is just such a place.” Volkswagen wants the I.D. to be a car that interacts with the driver so that every movement has a reason. The neatly designed interior features a steering wheel that retracts into the dashboard, creating a flush area that increases the Open Space. The result is an interior that has more of a “lounge” feeling than that of a car. It is a place for relaxing and conversation in a car that will eventually take over the driving chores as well. it will only be about 3 years before the I.D. shows up on the Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale lot. In the meantime, enjoy the technology available in the Volkswagen inventory, cars that were made for the autobahn.
