Default 2020 Volkswagen I.D. Neo

https://www.auto-motor-und-sport.de/...icht-prototyp/

The nowadays more and more fashionable official spyshots provided together with journalist driving the prototypes (whilst winter in the northern hemisphere, in sunny South Africa):







What we know officially: It will be launched in early 2020, the base model will have 125kW and do 0-100kph in 8sec, and it should not be more expensive than " a well equipped Golf TDI" (that is of course a term than stretches quite wide), but it should be a lot cheaper than the current eGOlf, thanks to the bespoke platform.

This is very much a product with Europe in mind.

It even seems that it won't come to the US according to some sources.

That would be absolutely stupid of them. This has a 'crossover shape'....EV's are gaining popularity here. A 300 mile EV that isn't Tesla (and looks decent if it sticks close to the concept) is exactly the type of competition Tesla needs.

Well, to be fair, the I.D: is to spawn a family, so likely some members will make it to the US; probably not this, the smallest (and by looking at the guy sitting in the rear, it does seem quite tight, so probably to small for the US anyway);

From the tests I doubt it will be a 300 mile range, in one of the (German language) reviews of this they mentioned that at around 50% of charge it indicated a bit above 140 km of range, so probably more like a 300km range, at least in the base model;

Back to the US: I could also see VW selling them in Europe first because European customers are way more forgiving to VW in general than the US, so some teething problems (that any new platform will likely have) are certainly causing much less of an uproar here than in the US. Another point could of course be production capacities and probably setting up production for a larger I.D. family member in the US or Mexico....

#Nonsense It's an EV "Golf" and just another dull hatchback.There's nothing "crossover" about it in any way.
