    Production-Bound, All-Electric Volkswagen I.D. Crozz II Reviewed – Video
    It's a little ironic how excited this soft-spoken, meticulous review has made me for this vehicle. By Autogefühl standards this is a short presentation at 28:16, but includes some face time with chief designer Klaus Bischoff.

    Basically what we learned is the basic exterior shape of this concept will return in the production version. It will likely have a traditional B-pillar with the rear door hinged to it, as in most traditional vehicles. Also, that light bar across the front will probably stay, along with the lit VW badge on the nose.

    The interior will take some cues from the concept. Buttons will be kept to a bare minimum a la Tesla, but look for a rounder steering wheel. The glass roof with the laser cut lines that reflect light, creating a star-like effect, may also stay.

    Price-wise, they hint it may dip below the 40,000 Euro mark ($47,280 at today's rates), but that may only be a rear-wheel-drive variant. With an 83 kWh battery, range should be in the 200-250 mile EPA-rated ballpark, and boast a 30-minute recharge time using CCS Combo.

    Definitely check out the video in the link at the top of this post. Sooo good.

    I've owned VW's my entire Adult life and am very disappointed in their offerings. They just aren't taking things seriously and I'm sick and tired of VW EV headlines promising this and that.

    Interesting to see if the Ford Mach 1 ev follows this look (coupe crossed with suv). The way they talk about it being a PUZ conjures this ID Crozz look.

    I hate this style of vehicle and personally can not see it being popular with the masses or a logical choice for efficient ev design. That leads me to the conclusion they are choosing this butchered format for their early ev releases to minimise canabalising their ICE range. Disappointing.

    The way the rear doors opened was great. Hope that part makes it into production.

    Have you driven an e-Golf? They are the best EV's to drive, in my opinion. They get all the most important stuff right.

    The Huntsville VW dealer does not have even a L2 charger. The nearest VW fast DC charger, Electrify America, is 76 miles away in Manchester TN. Only 1 of 4 chargers worked and it took 30 minutes to figure out which one.

    Wow - that is a high price; or higher than I was hoping for. Though I'm sure they are looking to the Model Y as their main competition.
