Volkswagen ID CROZZ updated, gets ready for 2020 production

The German carmaker also said it will invest 20 billion euros ($23.9 billion) by 2030 in the electric-car efforts, allocating the money to developing two kinds of chassis exclusively for electric cars, as well as factory enhancement, expansion of car-charging infrastructure and development of batteries.

Volkswagen, which owns the Audi, Skoda, SEAT and Porsche brands, will continue to invest in improving its gas and diesel engines while bringing 80 new electrified models to market by 2025, including 50 purely battery-powered vehicles.

Several parts of the world, including the United Kingdom and France, have announced that they plan on outright banning the sale of new diesel and petrol cars in the future, putting pressure on automakers to adjust their business strategy and commit to improvements in consumption and emissions. At the Frankfurt auto show, it dropped a newer version of the pure electric ID Crozz Crossover.

"According to our forecasts, the annual sales of the I.D. models could tenfold to one million vehicles by 2025", said Herbert Diess, Volkswagen brand executive.

Resplendent in new Hibiscus Red Metallic paint, and highlighted by five-spoke 21-inch alloy wheels, the I.D. Crozz II is more refined than the first concept shown at the Shanghai motor show in April.

Power comes from a fully electric system, with an electric motor at the front and rear axle to create all-wheel drive.

"Our task is to make modern technology available to many people".

In order for Volkswagen to make enough batteries for the 300-odd models across the entire range, it's going to need some gigafactories.

The Crozz II continues to have a unusual door layout with conventional hinges at the front and sliding ones at the rear. Automakers are also searching for ways to adapt to a future in which people find ways of getting from one place to another without necessarily owning a auto, such as car-sharing or ride-hailing through smartphone apps. It's also earmarking over 20 billion euros (about $23 billion) to fund the electrification transition. The company has now revealed an updated version of the concept at the 2017 Frankfurt Motorshow.
