Ralf Brandstatter, CEO of Volkswagen has confirmed that the ID Vizzion will arrive in the international market (China will be on priority) with the name of ID.6 and its first deliveries will start in 2023. At the press conference, Brandstatter has also announced that the company’s profits have increased up to 451% against the 8% sales drop.
The upcoming Volkswagen ID Vizzion is a potential rival to popular EV cars like the Hyundai Ioniq 6, Polestar 2 and Tesla Model 3. In terms of exterior, the ID Vizzion will be similar to the Passat. On the inside, it is likely to be more spacious with a premium set of features.
Built under the Aero-B codename, the official name of the car is yet to be announced. The new model is expected to make use of MEB architecture and will be offered with rear or four-wheel-drive powertrain options as the ID.4.
The four-door ID saloon will likely come equipped with a 84kWh battery and will manage a range of 431 miles per charge, a bit more than the new Mercedes-Benz EQE. Other ID models come with small batteries (58 kWh-77 kWh) that will not be available with the ID.6.
The 84kWh battery takes around 30 minutes to charge from 0-80%. More technical details for the production version are yet to be confirmed.
