Airflow apertures have been integrated into the eye-catching front end: the air flows through a horizontal panel between the headlights and is directed to the rear over the extremely low-slung bonnet. There is also airflow into the outer areas of the front bumper, from where it is directed to the rear, too. The airflow apertures on the bumper and the bonnet of the ID. SPACE VIZZION have been designed as functional features, and are also unmistakable styling elements of the concept car’s exterior.
The ID. SPACE VIZZION fully exploits the benefits offered by the MEB. Thanks to the compact dimensions of the electric drive and a battery integrated in the floor, the interior space provided is more reminiscent of a long wheelbase premium sedan than a mid-range model. It is not only the electric drive that makes the ID. SPACE VIZZION a sustainable vehicle, but also the materials used in the interior. These are consistently made of sustainable materials such as the new AppleSkin – an artificial leather containing an amount of residual material from apple juice production. In addition, no chrome is used in the interior of the ID. SPACE VIZZON – it is replaced by a chrome-like paint finish.
With its fully digitalised cockpit, the ID. SPACE VIZZION defines a new status quo in terms of intuitive control. For the first time, all relevant driving information is shown in an AR head-up-display (AR: augmented reality). Instead of the classic cockpit, there is a mini display containing only basic driving information. All entertainment, comfort and online functions, as well as vehicle settings are grouped together on a 15.6-inch touchscreen which appears to hover in mid-air. The driver also receives key information intuitively from the ID. Light – an interactive light strip between the A-pillars.
The ID. SPACE VIZZION provides a concrete outlook to the series production version which will be presented at the end of 2021, and launched in different variations in Europe, North America and China.
The ID. SPACE VIZZION was presented at the renowned Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. The world premiere coincided with the opening of the permanent exhibition “Building an Electric Future”. Volkswagen is a partner of the museum and the exhibition shows facets of future vehicles – from design and prototypes to insights of the production.
