Volkswagen continues to develop new models for the ID. family. The ID Aero – an electric sedan for China, North America, and Europe – is nearing completion. The near-series study vehicle will be presented on June 27th.
Now the next member of the ID. family is in the starting blocks. In Germany, the VW ID. However, Aero will only be seen later, because the electric sedan will first find its way onto the Chinese automobile market.
- Premiere ID. Aero on June 27th
- Electric alternative to the Passat
- Four-door with lots of space
- 700 km range
- Market launch in China from the second half of 2023
- Europe and North America will follow at the end of 2023
VW has new design sketches for the upcoming ID. Released Aero. As you can see, a lot of emphases is placed on aerodynamics and elegance. In the pictures, the Aero looks quite long and overall very large. It will be in the mid-range segment and will probably be 4.96 meters long, 1.90 meters wide, and 1.53 meters high.
The electric sedan is based on the modular electric drive system – like all VW ID models. There is no longer a radiator grille because it is no longer needed in an electric car. The front part of the hood is lowered and then raised a little. This is probably for aerodynamic reasons so that the air can be guided better over the roof.
Test cars were also on the road and already show the typical ID. design. Flowing, clear and elegant – this is how you can describe the ID. Aero is probably the easiest way to describe it. What strikes you at first glance is the very eye-catching front apron. The daytime running lights illuminate the way from the side.
VW ID. Aero interior
No pictures of the interior are known yet, but we assume that the interiors of the ID. models that are already available for sale will be used as a guide. In addition, the company is committed to sustainability and also offers leather-free options for the interior made from sustainable raw materials such as AppleSkin, an artificial leather that is made from the residues of apple production.
But that’s not certain yet, we have to wait a little longer.
The Aero will be available in sedan (and maybe estate) versions. The range should be around 700 kilometers – so it is suitable for everyday use and travel.
The model will be offered with rear-wheel drive as standard, but there will certainly be a faster and all-wheel-drive GTX performance model later. This should then create the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds. As a rear-wheeler, the Aero needs around 8.5 seconds.
An 84 kWh battery could be used and could provide an output of 279 hp. In addition, a 200 kW quick charge is planned, which could then deliver enough juice for a range of 230 kilometers in just 10 minutes.
