Volkswagen has just presented the newest member of the ID Family called the ID. Roomzz at the ongoing Auto Shanghai 2019.
The multivariable all-rounder is a zero-emission SUV which is tailored to both family and business requirements. According to Volkswagen, the production version is expected to be launched in China in 2021.
Design wise, the ID. Roomzz’s bodywork design follows the clear, homogeneous lines of the rest of the ID. family. Combining future IQ.Drive systems, the concept can glide fully automatically (Level 4 autonomous driving) through the traffic in ID. Pilot mode, where the occupants are provided with information via interactive light zones.
As for the cabin, the completely new variable interior concept can be individualised to a great extent. Various seating configurations can be adapted not only to passengers’ personal wishes, but also to the respective driving mode.
When the driver switches to fully automatic driving mode, the individual seats can be rotated inward by 25 degrees to enable a more communicative, lounge-like atmosphere on board.
Moreover, when the car is driving fully automatically, the ID. Pilot Relax mode allows each passenger to adjust their seat individually to suit their needs. In this mode, the seat can be moved from an upright to a reclined position.
In the manual “ID. Drive” mode, the digital cockpit along with the steering wheel appears to hover in front of the driver. The digital cockpit consists of a full glass-front panel. The digitalised steering wheel has been conceptually integrated into the panel.
The materials used in the interior are also unusual. The seat covers, for example, are made of AppleSkin – a new product that consists of a renewable raw material. Specially processed wooden veneers are also used in the “ID. Light” areas of the door panels.
We also have the CleanAir system which uses an active filter system to ensure that the air in the vehicle interior remains clean even if the ambient air isn’t.
Powered by a 82 kWh battery, the ID. Roomzz boasts a range of up to 450 km before the battery has to be recharged. In about half an hour, the concept car can be recharged to 80% of its capacity via a fast charging system with 150 kW (DC).
Two electric motors continuously drive both axles with a system output of 306 PS (electric 4MOTION).
Where performance is concerned, the ID. Roomzz can accelerate to 100 km/h in 6.6 seconds and reach top speeds of up to 180 km/h. As is the case with all electric cars, the maximum torque is available from the very start.
That said, the ID. Roomzz Concept is currently being presented to the public at Auto Shanghai 2019 in China which will go on until 26th April.
