In fact, it doesn't even have a steering wheel.
The Vizzion has been conceived to complement upcoming production versions of the I.D. hatchback, I.D. Buzz MPV and I.D. Crozz crossover in an extended line-up of pure-electric models planned by the German auto maker as it attempts to move on from the Dieselgate diesel emission manipulation scandal. Why do all the names have two Z's?
Step aboard the Vizzion concept and you'll see no steering wheel or pedals..
Passengers can interact with the chauffeur via voice or gesture controls, and the chauffeur will know each passenger's personal preferences. somehow?
Volkswagen says the Vizzion will be controlled by a "digital chauffeur" that allows passengers to interact with the auto without physical controls. Biometrics? Big Brother-esque scans of social media profiles?
The I.D. Vizzion is almost 17 feet long, giving passengers plenty of room to stretch out and get comfortable. Dream a little more and we probably start imagining a fully connected vehicle with a built-in butler. maybe we won't even have to drive? The 111 kWh lithium-ion batteries enable a range of up to 413 miles when regenerative braking is factored in. The power output of 225kW (302bhp) is good enough for a top speed of 180kmph.
The most important part of the I.D. Vizzion isn't the body, though - it's what's inside.
Electrification and technology of this sort will be huge for VW in the near future.
Instead, the first dedicated VW plug-in electric vehicle will be the production version of the ID Cross compact crossover that's appeared as a concept at several auto shows.
The company affirms to introduce 20 electric auto models by 2025 and will start putting its I.D. models into production by 2020. After that, a new electric SUV called the I.D. Crozz and then the I.D. VIZZION at the Geneva International Motor Show next month.
