The I.D. Concept and the Future of Volkswagen

The Paris Motor Show is where automakers from all over the world unveil their latest concepts and their newest technology. Some of these vehicles may never make it to the market in quite the same form, but they can determine how an automaker approaches future vehicle design and what kind of new innovations its engineers and designers will try to develop. We may be biased here at Byers Volkswagen, but we think that the Volkswagen brand was the automaker that made the biggest splash at this year's show thanks to its stylish I.D. concept, an electric car that could shape the future of its vehicle lineup.

The sleek and compact I.D. may remind you of the 2016 Volkswagen Golf or even the classic Volkswagen Bug, but what really sets this concept apart is that it will be the first vehicle to be built off of the brand's custom Modular Electric Drive kit. This zero-emissions car will be able to travel up to an impressive 373 miles on one charge when it arrives on the market in 2020. That will go a long way in eliminating “range anxiety” for drivers who aren't comfortable with electric cars just yet.

The I.D. will also serve as the brand's first official foray into self-driving vehicle technology. Drivers will be able to enter the “I.D. Pilot” mode with the touch of a button, and this model could even come equipped with a fully retractable steering wheel. The automaker is also working with package delivery and logistics firms to allow them to one day deliver packages directly to the trunk of the I.D., without compromising your safety or security. You'll never have to worry about being home to sign for an important delivery again!

We can't wait to see what else Volkswagen engineers cooks up in the future, but if you're looking for a great new car right now, you're in luck. Visit our Volkswagen dealership near New Albany, OH and check out our huge selection of new and used Volkswagen vehicles. We hope to see you soon!
