But don't expect the ID VIZZION any time soon.

Now, VW confirms that it will unveil the I.D.

Technicalities aside about the absence of a steering wheel, VW is showing how the future of transportation can be exciting: that vehicles can and will retain their distinct, emotional designs. The 111 kWh lithium-ion batteries enable a range of up to 413 miles when regenerative braking is factored in. Motive power for the I.D. Vizzion comes courtesy of a two electric motors on each axle driving all four wheels, producing 225 kW (302 hp) in total system output.

However, what separates the Geneva-bound I.D. Vizzion from the rest of the I.D. lineup revealed till date by VW is its interiors which do not feature any steering wheel or pedals which suggests that the new concept electric sedan will feature Level 5 autonomy, i.e: no human input will be needed by the VW ID Vizzion to help it traverse the roads. Will the I.D. Vizzion join it? It's driven by a "digital chauffeur"; the car's human passengers can communicate with the chauffeur via voice and gesture controls.

On the inside, there's some futuristic controls, which VW promises will demonstrate the potentials of autonomous driving. If the VW I.D. Vizzion is a preview of what the near future looks like, then the days of actually enjoying how a auto drives could soon be coming to an end. We'll know much more after we hear what VW executives say about the I.D. Vizzion concept when it's unveiled next month. By 2025, the brand plans to introduce more than 20 electrified models.

This offers a glimpse into what may be a fourth - or later - model from the I.D. range to enter production, which will be preceded by production versions of the I.D. Buzz microbus, I.D. Starting in 2020, the I.D.² will launch as an electric vehicle in the compact class; this will be followed, at short intervals, by a new electric SUV - the I.D.
