volkswagen’s latest ID. concept boasts full autonomy, wooden veneer door panels, and a half-hour charge time that increases battery life to 80% capacity. ‘this SUV is a monolith, appearing to be seamlessly machined from one solid block. the battery-powered ID. ROOMZZ moves effortlessly – silently and without emissions,’ says klaus bischoff, chief designer at the volkswagen brand.




the 82-kwh battery on-board the ID. ROOMZZ has a range of up to 450 km – 475 km. two electric motors can continuously drive both axles with a system output of 225 KW / 306 PS (electric 4MOTION).




the ID. ROOMZZ can accelerate to 100 km/h in 6.6 seconds and reach top speeds of up to 180 kmh, and — as is the case with all e-cars — the maximum torque is available instantly. as one accelerates and shifts the ROOMZZ into its full autonomy mode, one might configure the seats to face each other like a quiet lounge traversing the road.


  • Nice profile. They, like the Tesla 3, have not yet figured out how to make an appealing ‘no radiator’ nose.


    Jimmy Xi says:
  • Love the style but…Why is the backseat restricted to 2 ? Totally eliminates the family of 5 from purchasing this vehicle. Same issue with the Chevrolet Volt!

    Guess have to wait for the ID BUZZ Mini bus!
