IAA 2017: All you need to know about the Frankfurt Motor Show

IAA 2017: All you need to know about the Frankfurt Motor Show

First revealed at the Shanghai Motor Show in April, the electric auto concept has been updated to move it closer towards production.

Earlier in the year, Volkswagen revealed their upcoming electric SUV concept called the I.D. Crozz. Some of the models attracting the most industry attention will include: Audi's A8 four-door sedan with an eight-speed transmission and all-wheel drive; the eighth generation of the Rolls-Royce Phantom; and a new version of Volkswagen's Polo compact, which comes in gasoline and, yes, diesel versions. The future developed electric SUV is a part of Volkswagen's new electric campaign in which the company will initially introduce three models starting from 2020. The two-tone paint really helps the design, particularly from the rear three-quarters perspective where the silver roof provides an attractive contrast over the red body to make things pop more. The bonnet and the front guards are cleaner, while the LED headlights "point the way towards production", VW says. It also hopes to produce "affordable" EVs with driving ranges of up to 600km on a single, short battery charge. It's also expected to be able to charge to 80 percent in 30 minutes via a 150 kW DC fast charger.

The company is also looking into longer life vehicle batteries that could in the future offer a driving range of over 370 miles in one charge.

Torque distribution is controlled via an "electric propshaft", effectively a system that can direct power to the front, rear or both motors when needed. The vehicle will also have a system that monitors air quality inside the cabin.

VW imagines the I.D. Crozz II with a pair of electric motors - one at each axle - with a total of 302 horsepower (225 kilowatts).

Volkswagen chairman Herbert Diess has said that the new concept brings the ID Crozz more in line with the definitive production version than the original concept.

They are all hoping to hit ambitious hybrid and all-electric auto sales targets with a flood of new models by the mid 2020s. With the exception of Tesla, whose shares jumped 6% on Monday following China's weekend announcement, electric vehicle makers have had trouble penetrating the market.
