Meanwhile, the Mexican operation will export the ID Buzz, the modern, all-electric take on the classic VW Microbus. Space Vizzion Concept will not change much by the time it reaches the assembly lines.
Next in the pipeline is the ID Space Vizzion, which VW describes as a vehicle with the aerodynamic characteristics of a sleek grand tourer and the spaciousness of an SUV.
"So far, with our ID. family, we have shown what is possible with electric vehicles in each known auto category", Klaus Bischoff, Head of Volkswagen Design, said in the release of these teaser images.

The completely digitzed cockpit is complemented by materials that have been made, at least in part, with sustainable raw materials.
VW has confirmed that different versions will be offered in North America, Europe and China. In total, it is planned to increase the local production in China up to 15 MEB models from different brands by 2025.
