Volkswagen I.D. Roomzz concept previews future electric SUV

Volkswagen has revealed its I.D. Roomzz concept ahead of its debut at the Shanghai Motor Show as it showcases a future electric large SUV.

The Volkswagen I.D. Roomzz concept

Due to launch in China first in 2021, the Roomzz will join the I.D. family alongside models including the smaller Crozz SUV, the Buzz van/MPV, the Vizzion saloon revealed at last year’s Geneva and the Buggy. Like its counterparts, it’s built on VW’s MEB Modular Electric Drive Matrix platform; last week saw the Group announce that Seat is to take the lead on developing a smaller version of the platform for sub-£17k ‘affordable’ EVs.

The concept car offers level 4 autonomous driving along with new seat configurations, high-quality materials and customisable light solutions, according to the brand.

Its reveal comes three weeks after the Volkswagen Group announced that it’s ramped up its plans for electric cars with a new strategy to launch almost 70 new models in the next 10 years – up from the 50 previously planned.

“The I.D. Roomzz shows us what we can expect from full-size electric SUVs in the future. The puristic look emphasises the clear function and the user experience is intuitive and natural,” commented Klaus Bischoff, chief designer at the Volkswagen brand.
