The German carmaker intends to introduce the newest member of its I.D. family (currently consisting of the I.D., the I.D. Crozz and the I.D. Buzz) before the year’s end. This message has been transmitted through a company video called “Preview 2018”.
However, a lot of questions stay open, first and foremost when and where the presentation takes place and of which model we are talking of. The video also announces an electric-powered race car, developed for VW’s return to the legendary U.S. hill climb Pikes Peak in June.
Just recently, VW asked the World Intellectual Property Organization to protect two additional potential names for upcoming electric members of the I.D. family – namely, the I.D. Cruiser and the I.D. Freeler. So far, VW has introduced MEB-based concepts of its I.D., I.D. Crozz and I.D. Buzz. Other (leaked) model names like I.D. Lounge, I.D. AEROe and I.D. Streetmate have not yet been officially confirmed. The same is true for a current report, suggesting that VW intends to roll out the I.D. Crozz to an earlier date than initially planned, already in 2019 instead of 2020.
