The I.D. will be launched as a compact-class electric vehicle in 2020

The first arrival from the ID. family — a newly developed design DNA for electric cars from Volkswagen — the ID. is a compact all-rounder. With an impressive range of up to 372 miles on one charge, it’s the perfect choice for the everyday driver who demands more from their vehicle but still expects the highest in efficiency levels.

Last week the heavily camouflaged ID. had its first media test drives in South Africa. Two UK journalists (Top Gear and AutoExpress) were part of the fortunate six that were able to drive the car. Their first impressions and exterior images were released last weekend.
