Volkswagen Group To Introduce 80 Electrified Vehicles By 2025

Experience 360 degrees of Magna at IAA Frankfurt

Earlier in the year, Volkswagen revealed their upcoming electric SUV concept called the I.D. Crozz. That is because the Volkswagen brand is accelerating into this new era by developing a new generation of innovative electric vehicles - the I.D., I.D. Leaving its upmarket niche is putting the Californian startup on direct collision course with traditional automakers like VW, Toyota Motor Corp. and Nissan Motor Co.as falling battery costs are forecast to make electric cars more affordable in coming years.

Ahead of the Frankfurt Motor Show, VW Group CEO Matthias Mueller, while elaborating on the Dollars 84 billion project, stated that they aim to deliver 80 electrified offerings by 2025, including the Volkswagen I.D. Buzz Concept and a host of EVs from Audi.

That's more than four times larger than the annual output of the enormous battery production "Gigafactory" that Tesla CEO Elon Musk has built in the Nevada desert.

"The transformation in our industry is unstoppable. And we will lead that transformation".




Set to hit dealerships by 2020, the I.D. Crozz concept is said to be a cross between an SUV and a four-door coupe. The I.D. Crozz II will likely unveil a production model after the first two.

Volkswagen, at this week's Frankfurt motor show, has confirmed that a production version of its all-electric ID Crozz SUV concept will be revealed in 2020 alongside the emissions-free, four-door ID small vehicle.

Muller said on 11 September: "We have got the message and we will deliver". Tesla has started to roll out the $35,000 Model 3 to broaden its appeal and stem billions of dollars in losses. With no B-pillar in the way, this provides plenty of room to see into the cabin. That's enough for a maximum speed of 112 miles per hour (180 kilometers per hour) and VW estimates range at 311 miles (500 kilometers) on a full charge. It's also expected to be able to charge to 80 percent in 30 minutes via a 150 kW DC fast charger. People who don't understand the reference should go to an online German-English dictionary and type in "Volkswagen". Muller said: "For the time being, we will be offering the entire powertrain spectrum - from conventional to fully-electric - to enable sustainable and affordable mass mobility". I don't know if the levitating gnome will survive the focus groups, though. Meanwhile, the I.D. Buzz will be joining the line up in 2022. Video shot and edited by Jennifer Hahn.
