Volkswagen ID Crozz SUV concept 2020 revealed in Frankfurt

Revised I.D. Crozz concept gives a better clue to the production version

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. Underscoring that similarity, Volkswagen, like BMW, employs the anomalous "four-door coupe" term to describe this latest CROZZ, and characterized this version as closer to production than its predecessor. One thing is clear: "The Golf of the future must once again be a people's vehicle!"

Though the CROZZ was the fourth I.D. concept to be introduced, it will be the second in the series to reach production, according to Volkswagen. VW's already started teasing its next new EV models and plans to bring the ID Buzz from concept to consumer-ready throwback minibus by 2022.

Inside the interior has also been updated to give it an Open Space. B-pillars were omitted in the I.D.

The new German crossover even has a menu that provides information on the quality of the air in the auto.

Improved habitability comes courtesy of a newly-developed CleanAir system, which ensures a supply of clean air to the interior. It is also possible to activate or deactivate the fully automated driving mode "I.D".

Other automakers have been aggressively committing to electric vehicles, with Volvo and Aston Martin both committing to abandon gas-only vehicles by the next decade. Output is rated at 225kW, capable of propelling the concept up to a top speed of 180km/h. The high-performance battery can be charged to 80% of its energy capacity in 30 minutes using a fast-charging system.

An ideal weight distribution between the two axles is achieved by centrally integrating the battery within the ID Crozz and having the two drive system units at the front and rear. While this is a compact CUV, the German maker entices us to visions of the Crozz II handling like the Golf GTI thanks to implementations such as the electronically controlled dampers and a new multi-link rear suspension. Volkswagen estimates that the I.D. Crozz II has a range of 500 km on a single charge.
