VW plans to roll out 80 electric and hybrid models by 2025

2018 Volkswagen I.D. Crozz might enter production in 2020

New York Times reports that the Chinese have always set the trend in technological advancements through their high-speed trains and wind turbines.

The result is plenty of interior space - so the concept version is an eight-seater.

The new models sleek and slender LED headlight design is also likely to make its way into the production version, according to Volkswagen.

The German firm is planning to 2025 to offer 80 new electric cars.

By 2025, the company estimated that one in four of all of its vehicles could be powered exclusively by electricity, equating to up to three million cars a year.

"One thing is clear: The Golf of the future must once again be a people's auto!"

Moving to its side, one will notice that the I.D. Crozz II does not have a B-pillar. The vehicle will also have a system that monitors air quality inside the cabin. In the run-up to the IAA, which alternates each year with the Paris Motor Show, German luxury carmaker BMW and Britain's Jaguar Land Rover became the latest manufacturers to promise electric or hybrid models across all their brands in coming years. Its all-electric, four-wheel-drive drivetrain gives it better grip levels in poor conditions, while the car's batteries can be replenished to 80 per cent in 30 minutes when using a fast-charging system. The battery is centrally integrated within the SUV to achieve proper weight distribution between the two axles.

Equipped with a new voice assistant, the ID Crozz can open or close its doors with a voice command and vocal instructions can be used to activate or deactivate the fully automated driving mode, "I.D".

The much-hyped model aims to be the first electric auto for the masses with a starting price around $35,000 (29,000 euros) and a battery range of 220 miles (354 kilometers).

While the Buzz is getting all the. well buzz for bringing the microbus back to the market, America's love affair with crossovers and SUVs means you're probably going to see more Crozz' on the road than retro buses.

The company's so-called I.D. electric model has been created to compete with Tesla Inc.'s least expensive vehicle, the new Model 3 sedan, which is available with a price tag of $35,000.
