The Future is Electric

Volkswagen knows that the future is electric, and they know the importance of staying ahead of the pack. Dr. Herbert Diess, the CEO of Volkswagen, says, "The Volkswagen Brand will be investing 6 billion euros in electric mobility over the next five years." While Tesla is the currently the biggest name in the electric auto world, Diess isn't worried, stating "Anything Tesla can do, we can surpass." Those aren't just empty words; the concept VW I.D. Crozz shows that Volkswagen really knows what they're doing.

The newly revealed I.D. Crozz is a zero-emission electric crossover. One of its most interesting features is the electric 4MOTION all-wheel drive; the I.D. Crozz has one electric motor for the front axle, one for the rear axle, and its torque distribution is handled by what VW calls an "electric propshaft." The CleanAir system keeps the interior fresh and comfortable in any environment. This is admittedly just a concept model, so don't sell your current car just yet. However, it couldn't hurt to decide the color you want; the I.D. Crozz has a planned launch date of 2020. With the constant advances in technology, it's a very exciting time in the automotive world. We can't wait to see what Volkswagen does next.
