First tests on European roads for the prototype of what will be one of the future models of the family Volkswagen ID. After the compact sedan and SUVs, in Wolfsburg they are working on a more classic Passat-style sedan that should incorporate some of the elements of the ID Vizzion concept car, which had made its debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. a “cutting edge premium class sedan”, this model had been followed by the Space Vizzion wagon version in 2019 with both cars expected to have a stock version in 2023.
The forklift photographed on the road has a more traditional look than the Vizzion concept, while maintaining some stylistic traits that bring it closer to the other models in the ID range, especially at the rear. The closed grille stands out on the grille, as usual for electric cars, with the Volkswagen brand still covered. The raised bonnet accompanies towards a roofline that sinuously lowers towards a more raised rear. The covers are really minimal in this case, with the appearance of the car being almost entirely visible, as are the aerodynamic rims. An integrated rear spoiler and a large third brake light can also be seen. The prototype also sports a glass roof and flush door handles. With the Vizzion ID which measured 5,163mm and had a wheelbase of 3,100mm, it’s easy to assume VW kept similar proportions.
Always remaining in the field of hypotheses, it is likely that the sedan of the ID family adopt a 111 kWh battery pack and a dual engine four-wheel drive system capable of delivering a total power of 225 kW, the characteristics that boasted the Vizzion concept. This configuration would allow a 0-100 km / h sprint in 6.3 seconds and a range of up to 665 km in the WLTP cycle. It is possible that ID.7 is chosen for the name, following the numbering currently in use and that rear-wheel drive and more battery packs are also proposed at the debut.
