VW ID Concept - All New EV

Hi,

VW is going to be showing an all new EV concept car they are calling the ID Concept:



VW shows renderings of ID electric-car concept for Paris Motor Show





It is ~15cm shorter than the Golf, but has a significantly longer wheelbase. They are saying 400-600km range for different battery packs - which is ~248-372 miles. Production is 2020 - which sounds realistic.

4 years out? How hard can it be to swap EV-drive train for ICE-drive train? Especially when the 'body' already exists in production?

Neither of those things are correct - this is based on a ground-up new EV chassis, called MEB:

And it is not some "body" they are already building. It is not unlike the Nissan IDS Concept:

How would that work, on an EV? The car has no emissions.

They already produce that car. It is called the E-Golf and goes 108 miles on a charge.

The ID is a clean sheet of paper design specifically designed to be electric.

Since it is VW, it will be priced at $40k US more or less. My guess, $42k US. But, then again, considering that it has a range of more than 300 miles US, It really has no competition, except, perhaps a modified Tesla. So, maybe were are looking at $50k US or so. Snazzy car anyway. No range anxiety with this auto! Well, they won't be coming off lease until 2022 or so, plenty of time to save up.
