Additionally, the I.D. Crozz wears slightly redesigned headlamps over the Shanghai concept, though it is largely similar.

Although CROZZ II sports revised front and rear fascias with a bevy of LED lights up front, plus a new paint job-Hibiscus Red Metallic-and new 21-inch wheels, the most significant innovation is the promise of autonomous drivability-I.D.

Equipped with a new voice assistant, the ID Crozz can open or close its doors with a voice command and vocal instructions can be used to activate or deactivate the fully automated driving mode, "I.D".

In its latest iteration, the I.D Crozz offers more space with an "Open Space" concept which is more capacious and has a "versatile seating concept".

The ID Crozz also showcases Volkswagen's new CleanAir system that ensures an unpolluted supply of air in the interior regardless of ambient conditions. Information is provided on the quality of air within the auto and on the system's current activity, says Volkswagen.

However, Rummenigge said: "We've had a serious and successful philosophy for a long time and enjoyed great success with that". I don't think though, that a player would have that amount of power. "We can do better than a year ago ", admitted Ancelotti.

The I.D. Crozz is powered by two electric motors, one at the front axle and one at the rear. Front-rear torque distribution is managed by a system VW calls an "electric propshaft". The driving range of the SUV that outputs 225 kW (system power) and boasts a top speed of 180 km/h is up to 500 kilometres (NEDC) on single battery charge. Volkswagen I.D. CROZZ is a crossover of an SUV and a four-door coupé concept, which has been further improved towards a production implementation.

VW will not be dropping combustion engines entirely yet as the infrastructure for electric vehicles is now not in place, Mueller told the BBC.

The high-performance battery can be charged to 80 per cent of its energy capacity in 30 minutes using a fast-charging system.

Suspension is taken care of by a new multi-link set-up with MacPherson struts and electronically controlled dampers.

Volkswagen announced today that it will spend over $24 billion producing electric vehicles by 2030 and will have a zero emissions version of each of its models, just like Mercedes-Benz. The I.D. concept cars share the new "all-electric architecture" which is a common platform and will be used by all Volkswagen owned companies.
