Volkswagen ID. Vizzion²
The Volkswagen I.D. Vizzion is a concept electric vehicle, part of Volkswagen's I.D. project. The firm is planning to sell a production version of the vehicle by 2022. It should be expected that some of the claims of the Vizzion Concept, such as the autonomous level 5 driving, will likely not make it the final 2022 production version of the vehicle. The Vizzion Concept is more likely to represent what driving in the year 2030 could be like.
The Volkswagen I.D. R features two electric motors, located at each axle, allowing for a combined 510 kW (680 hp) and 649 N⋅m (479 lb⋅ft) of torque. The I.D. R weighs under 1,100 kg (2,500 lb) and has a 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) time of 2.25 seconds.
The Vizzion Concept's design was aimed to eliminate any seams or obstructions for passengers. It features rear-opening doors and windows that lie flush with the body-work of the car, thus giving the car a futuristic look. The vehicle also features several LED strips that surround the car, highlighting the front grille, the door handles, rear fenders and the sides. The lights on the car start pulsating, letting the user know that the car has detected one of its passengers' faces using integrated sensors. The interior features only two analog dials: they are multi-functional, but are primarily for adjusting the stereo. The majority of car functions are controlled through hand gestures in the heads-up display, and voice controls. The car features no steering wheel, or any dashboard, as the car is level 5 autonomous.
