The German company is apparently preparing for a new family name – I.D. – because reports are calling in for even more concepts based on the same electric idea to arrive during the year.
Apparently the I.D. concept series is turning into a rather large family – as Volkswagen will deliver during the show calendar of 2017 even more concepts bearing the same name as a way to pave the strategy towards its future green range. “We are exploring on our electric platform all the concepts that could be done,” recently commented in an interview Volkswagen sales and marketing boss Jurgen Stackmann. “Next we’ll introduce you to two or three more ideas on the platform in the months to come to show the spectrum and we’ll lay our cards very soon on what we can do.”
Stackmann refrained from delivering any more details about the upcoming concepts wearing the I.D. moniker, but already the rumor mill is previewing the apparition of an SUV during Auto Shanghai 2017 taking place in April. And there’s also talk of a sports car – of course all of these concepts will be unified not only in name, but also in architecture – wearing the new Modular Electric Drive kit platform, developed by VW solely for use in electric cars.
