Just a few hours before its official presentation, the design of the Volkswagen ID. Aero Concept has been completely leaked to the network. This prototype is a practically definitive preview of the production version of the German firm’s next electric sedan, which will have the complex task of replacing both the Passat and the Arteon.
Framed within segment D (medium sedans), the Volkswagen ID. Aero will measure approximately 4.80 meters long. Among its rivals will be the Hyundai IONIQ 6, which will be presented in two weeks, as well as the Tesla Model 3, which has been crowned the best-selling electric car in the world for four consecutive years.
Sitting on an updated version of Volkswagen Group’s modular MEB platform, the ID. Aero is available with several battery options, and its offer will likely be made up of three packs: an access 58 kWh pack, an intermediate 77 kWh pack, and an unprecedented 100 kWh pack that will also reach the ID van. Buzz.
At the time it was officially confirmed that the car’s autonomy will be around 700 km under the European WLTP homologation cycle, something that will be achieved thanks, among other things, to its well-worked aerodynamics (in the images you can see that it will not be a sedan of conventional three bodies, but of a fastback sedan ).
The Volkswagen ID. Aero will replace the Passat
While the 77 kWh model will be able to charge a maximum of 170 kW of power in direct current, the 100 kWh model will reach about 200 kW. In both cases, the car will be able to go from 5 to 80% charge in just 30 minutes, thus improving the times of the previous generation of vehicles based on the MEB platform.
Aesthetically, the ID. Aero is based on the main lines of the ID prototypes. Vizzion and ID. SpaceVizzion its interior seems identical to that of the latter. The vehicle, which will be available in two body styles (saloon and station wagon), is characterized by a cleanly designed front end and a drop in the roof that extends almost to the end of the trunk.
Its light clusters (both front and rear) are attached to the width of the bodywork, and the doors have recessed handles. Undoubtedly, one of the most striking parts is the pilots, which follow a rhomboid interior pattern. The cabin for its part is dominated by a huge touch screen in horizontal format, which contrasts with the tiny size of the digital instrumentation. Source; Cochespias
