Volkswagen ID Vizzion electric sedan unveiled at Geneva auto show

Volkswagen ID Vizzion previews electric luxury saloon

So, the essential focus is autonomous driving, which is why the designers had to work a lot on the cabin. It is controlled entirely by gestures and voice commands. The AI system will be fed with multiple images of cars, trucks, bicycles and pedestrians to make it understand the difference between these objects. Owners will simply find a parking spot and the robot will identify their auto and automatically dock with it for recharging.

The Level 5 concept would conceivably use, according to VW, "inter-connected laser scanners, ultrasonic sensors, radar sensors for objects in the near-zone and radar sensors for long distances, front and rear cameras and side area view cameras".

The statement continues, "To highlight its 2030 worldview, the Vizzion concept was styled with a new, sleek evolution of VW's electric vehicle DNA". Sourced from a modular range of in-house produced electric motors that Volkswagen says will power the entire I.D. line-up, they provide the Vizzion with an overall system output of 302bhp, with drive channelled directly to each axle and, subsequently, all four wheels. In front, there is a 101 HP coaxial drive motor, whereas the one at the rear pushes out 201 HP for a total of 302 HP. VW says it will have a range of 413 miles on the European cycle. Consequently, it has an extraordinarily long 122.0-inch wheelbase on vehicle that measures 203.3 inches overall. VW claims this allows for optimal interior space. Thanks to this design, the cabin ensures maximum possible space for the occupants.

As well as driving itself and tailoring ventilation, media and lighting to match pre-programmed profiles, the I.D Vizzion also has the ability to ask its passengers if they would like to stop at a cafe or order drinks to go, while automatically paying for it.

They have to, because sometimes I can not reach them during a game. "But I'm not so stupid to play open and lose 3-0 or 4-0". They kept possession and kept us at bay, ticking down the clock until the game cantered to a boring climax.

The ID Vizzion will go into production by 2022, Volkswagen said, and is meant to show that even in a future in which cars may be all-electric and drive themselves.

Although the new concept vehicle on display in Geneva goes without a steering wheel in a preview of Volkswagen's plans to introduce fully autonomous driving capability to its production models by the end of next decade in a four-seat interior described as a lounge on wheels, the new saloon is planned to be launched with a more conventional control layout similar to that of other first-generation I.D. models. The two vehicles will be the. Indeed, exactly what you would expect of an autonomous auto.

The virtual assistant aboard the ID Vizzion reacts predictively to a wide variety of events and relevant points of interest. "Maybe you should walk sometimes, Dave". It's essentially the system demonstrated in the VW Group's Sedric concept a year ago, though now officially presented in Volkswagen branding.
