The compact electric car market is heating up and new players are now making entries. At the Paris Motor Show, Volkswagen has unveiled its new electric car called the I.D. It’s going to be a fully electric vehicle that promises to provide a range of 370 miles on a single charge. The company claims that the 125 kW motor in this car is capable of providing this impressive mileage though these claims will only be tested once the car goes through some real world tests, but we’ll have to wait quite a bit for that.
Volkswagen says that the I.D. is the “ambassador” for its entirely new all-electric lineup which goes to show that the German giant is serious about competing in the electric car market.
It has shown off a concept model of the I.D. at the Paris Motor Show and you have to admit that it looks quite futuristic. Even though the car is not going to be released for a few years, chances are it will look a bit different when it does arrive.
VW hasn’t provided any further details about this car as yet but does say that it’s going to cost about the same as a VW Golf. It says that the car will be available for purchase come 2020. It’s also working on an automated driving feature for this car called I.D. Pilot but that won’t be ready until 2025.
