With the auto industry shifting towards more eco-friendly and electrified models to fill up their lineup, we’re going to be seeing more and more firsts for a lot of automakers. Some names in the industry have been making electrified versions of lineup favorites and even all-new hybrid vehicles, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), and electric vehicles (EVs) and battery-electric vehicles (BEVs). The latest debut is the ID. AERO concept car from Volkswagen, having recently celebrated its world premiere in China.
“With the ID. AERO show car, we are revealing a preview of the next member of our electric vehicle family. It’s a car with an emotional and at the same time extremely aerodynamic design, a range of more than 600 kilometers, an extraordinary amount of space and a premium interior…With our ACCELERATE strategy, we are intensively driving forward the electrification of our model range. Following the ID.4, this model will be our next global car for Europe, China and the U.S.” - Ralf Brandstätter, Chief Executive Officer of Volkswagen Passenger Cars
Concept vehicles can always be a little tricky. How much of the concept will make it into production? Will this concept even come to fruition? Automakers are always releasing a new concept, mainly to gauge consumer reaction, and then look into production based on that. With Volkswagen officially joining the industry in going electric, the ID.AERO is being setup as the automaker’s premium mid-size sedan segment entry for its future of EVs and other electrified concepts. According to the automaker, the ID.AERO is official, and will go on sale during the second half of 2023.
What do consumers have to look forward to? A sedan design with aerodynamic principles in mind, the sedan is more like a coupe with a swept back roof that slopes into the rear. A long wheelbase offers a much more spacious interior cabin, and the efficient drive system offers up to 385 miles thanks to a powerful lithium-ion battery with a net energy content of 77 kWh. The design language of Volkswagen is being translated into the ID.AERO for the first time, with a front end fascia that ensures air flows over the vehicle, allowing the EV to cut through wind resistance on 22-inch two-tone sporty wheels. To increase the aerodynamics and reduce, door handles are replaced by illuminated touch surfaces, and the only features on the side are the exterior mirrors. The lines of the side profile, roofline, and shoulder section above the tornado line give the electric sedan a more dynamic look, lower to the ground, ready to spring into action.
Like the rest of Volkswagen’s electric vehicle family, the front fascia is characterized by honeycomb motifs and is split into two at the bumper. A narrow light strip extends horizontally across the front fascia and wraps into the fenders and side panels, all the way to the rear with few interruptions, meeting with a dark light strip and LED taillight clusters. Built on the Volkswagen MEB architecture, able to be adapted for vehicles of different shapes and sizes, from compact crossover or SUV, the potential and possibilities of electric mobility are changing.
