Volkswagen Electric I.D. Vehicles’ Expected Release Dates
Currently, Volkswagen only has one all-electric vehicle for sale in the U.S.: the Volkswagen E-Golf, which has been around since 2015. But that’s slated to change soon. Volkswagen is prepping for an electric-heavy future with a slate of concept vehicles prepared under the moniker “I.D.”
Wondering when you can get your hands on one of Volkswagen’s upcoming electric rides? Read on to find out when you can expect to start seeing the hotly-anticipated I.D. nameplate vehicles on dealership lots.
What will the electric vehicles from Volkswagen be called?
The four electric concepts that Volkswagen currently lists on their website are: I.D., I.D. VIZZION, I.D. CROZZ, and I.D. BUZZ. Each of these vehicles is expected to have a range of over 250 miles on a single charge. Of course, these are simply concept vehicles and they may be released in very different forms or not released at all. But whether or not these specific concepts see the light of day, Volkswagen has promised a slew of electric models in the near-future.
How many electric vehicles will Volkswagen produce?
According to Auto Express, 27 electric vehicles using Volkswagen’s new MEB production platform will go on sale between 2020 and 2022.
When can I buy the Volkswagen I.D.?
The I.D., also known as the I.D. Neo, is an electric hatchback. According to a prediction from Autocar, UK sales of the I.D. Neo hatchback will begin in early 2020. Sales in the U.S. usually begin a few months after that. It’s believed that the vehicle will make its public debut later this year, perhaps at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show in mid-September.
An alleged leak of the I.D. Neo price tag puts it at $23,000.
When can I buy the Volkswagen I.D. CROZZ?
The I.D. CROZZ Concept is the only one officially noted on VW’s site as “expected to hit dealerships in 2020.” This vehicle has been reported to be an electric SUV, similar to a battery-powered rendition of the Volkswagen Tiguan. The I.D. CROZZ is advertised as having a fully autonomous “autopilot” feature.
Sources say the price of the I.D. CROZZ will start just shy of $30,000.
What about the Volkswagen I.D. BUZZ and I.D. VIZZION?
So far, there’s unfortunately no word on the release date of the much-anticipated I.D. BUZZ, the electric update to Volkswagen’s classic microbus. The I.D. VIZZION seems slated for a more distant future as it is “fully autonomous” and designed to get over 400 miles before needing a recharge. As Logan from HBO’s Westworld once uttered incredulously when confronted with a room of fully-humanoid robots, “we’re not here yet.”
