Now, Volkswagen is providing an important preview of these new frontrunners of electric mobility at Auto Shanghai 2017 (19 to 29 April). Whereas the first I.D. concept largely served to introduce the brand's EV plans to the world, and the Microbus-inspired I.D. Buzz played to consumer nostalgia, the I.D. Crozz's crossover shape allows Volkswagen to set its sights squarely on mass-market appeal. Its exterior design was built around combining "the rugged look of an SUV with the elegance of a coupe", said VW. They produce a combined 302 horsepower, getting the little crossover up to a top speed of 112 miles per hour.
