Volkswagen has introduced a newest member to its I.D. family – I.D. Crozz. The coupe-SUV showcases autonomous driving credential from the German giant and is expected to go into production by 2020.

Based around the same MEB platform like the previous two I.D. Concepts, the Crozz employs the four-wheel drive, powered by two motors on each axle. The combined output of 225kW (300bhp) from the 83kWh battery pack is good enough for 180kmph top speed and a range of 500km in a single charge.

The coupe-SUV body style adopted by the Crozz has a rather unique sliding rear door snugged into the smooth flowing roofline. The ultra-modern sleek LED lights both fore and aft are complemented by illuminated VW badge. The large newly-developed panoramic sunroof can be activated by gesture control. The wing mirrors are replaced by cameras and in typical concept car fashion, the large wheels add character. On the inside, the instruments and controls are all digital, while the augmented reality heads-up display helps the driver behind the wheel. The floor-mounted battery pack promises large cabin space as Volkswagen likes to point out – the Crozz is a lot smaller than the Tiguan Allspace but offers an equal amount of cabin space.

The Crozz also spearheads the Volkswagen’s autonomous tech, which will extend to the carmaker’s future models within the next decade. Touching the VW badges on the steering wheel, the Crozz enters into I.D Pilot mode, and with the help of LiDar sensors and four laser scanners integrated on the roof, and more than few cameras can drive with no human intervention.

Volkswagen mulling over the I.D. Crozz production is viable given the growing popularity of SUVs these days.
