"Space Vizzion we create a new, fully electric segment", said Klaus Bischoff, Head of Volkswagen Design. This underpins the new VW ID.3 hatchback, while various other upcoming EVs from across the Volkswagen Group will be built on it, too.

Inside, passengers are bathed in light flooding through the glass panoramic roof, and LED mood lighting is installed along the insides of the doors. This concept also showcases a new digital cockpit. The battery-electric station wagon is to be presented as a production vehicle at the end of 2021.

What's even more impressive, though, is that Volkswagen has already announced that the ID.3's prices will start at under 30,000 Euros, which means that, with additional government subsidies and other concessions, the ID.3 makes a serious case for itself in many European countries. It might not look quite like what's on display in LA because the company plans to offer "different versions for North America, Europe, and China". The SAIC Volkswagen factory in Anting near Shanghai is scheduled to start series production in October 2020.

Volkswagen has published the first sketches of what it calls the ID. SPACE VIZZION is the ID. Volkswagen will count on a aggregate of renewable strength sources for the plant, reducing the strength fundamental to construct a auto, tree planting initiatives and other schemes to construct every vehicle as ecologically pleasant as which that it is probably going you'll also recall to mind. By the time the concept comes out on the market, the Wolfsburg production network will increasingly be geared to the MEB.

Over the next 10 years, VW aims to manufacture 22 million electric cars across 70 electric models. Later, several MEB models for various Group brands are to be produced there, and the talk is of 15 model series by 2025.

At an event this week, Volkswagen CEO Herbert Diess said that "Zwickau is steeped in German automotive tradition and as of today, it's also very much set for the future". The area utilization is highly increased, meaning less land and built-up space is needed compared to a standard plant. It will, however, initially focus on the ID.3 (the first production EV based on the MEB platform) followed by the ID.4.
