​Volkswagen ID Crozz 2020 Electric SUV Spotted In Test Run

​Volkswagen ID Crozz 2020 Electric SUV Spotted In Test Run

Car lovers have been waiting to see the new Volkswagen ID Crozz 2020 Electric SUV since 2017, but finally a disguised model has been spotted on the road.

New models tend to spot camouflage to hide as much of the design as spec as possible, but it looks like the new vehicle retains a lot of the same exterior themes of the ID Crozz concept car which we saw over two years ago.

According to reports, two versions of the ID Crozz will be offered. The first will be a coupé-SUV in a similar style to the original concept, and a straight SUV model which we can see in the picture. It appears to have a more conventional roofline and tailgate design, conventional rear doors, ditching the sliding items of the 2017 version. It isn't clear yet whether or not the coupé version will do the same.

The ID Crozz will be built in Europe, the US and China which means it's a truly global model and a crucial part of the brand's aim to conquer the electronic vehicle market.

Volkswagen brand chairman Herbert Diess said: "As early as 2020 we aim to sell 100,000 all-electric Volkswagens [per year]

"But this is just the beginning. By 2025, annual sales could increase ten-fold to one million vehicles."

Diess also said that the new electric car line-up will be offered alongside traditional combustion engine and hybrid-powered Volkswagen models.

The ID Crozz concept is 4625mm long, 1891mm wide and 1609mm high and will have a wheelbase of 2773mm.

According to Autocar.co.uk: "The MEB-based ID Crozz is powered by the same zero-emissions driveline used by the original concept, featuring two electric motors - one mounted within the front axle, and one at the rear - powered by an 83kWh lithium ion battery housed within the floor structure. The front electric motor sends its 101bhp and 103lb ft to the front wheels. The rear unit delivers 201bhp and 228lb ft to the rear wheels, giving the car a combined output of 302bhp and 332lb ft of torque."

Recently, a law was passed so new electric vehicles have to be fitted with a device that makes them sound like a normal engine.

The written request to Parliament read: "The quiet nature of electric and hybrid vehicles means that they pose a danger to road users who cannot hear them approaching. Research published in November 2014 shows that electric and hybrid vehicles are 40 per cent more likely to be involved in a collision causing injury to a pedestrian than a conventional vehicle.

"Contrary to popular belief, it is up to guide dog owners rather than guide dogs to make the decision of when it is safe to cross roads, using their hearing to detect whether cars are approaching. It is therefore essential that vehicles are audibly detectable for guide dog owners to be able to cross roads safely."

If you're passionate about saving the world in style, then this car is for you.
