Volkswagen holds a world premiere for the high-end all-electric ID. AERO sedan
Volkswagen has now formally announced the ID. AERO, thereby confirming that it plans for the vehicle to become the next member of its series after the BUZZ, even though it is no more than a concept at this point.
Despite this, the marque has now fleshed its plans out with hints at 22-inch "two-tone" wheels styled to recall a turbine, aerodynamics boosted by "tornado lines", the substitution of "touch panels" for traditional door handles, and a downward-sloping, minimally-protruding rear end.
Volkswagen also predicts some of its IQ.LIGHT LED matrix headlights for the AERO, shaped so as to hug the wings of the more definitely upcoming premium mid-tier e-vehicle. The company also now projects a ~600 kilometer (km) range for the upper-tier 4-door sedan, thanks to a oneday "powerful" 77 kilowatt-hour (kWh) battery.
The AERO is thus still generally tipped to look much like its current render, which might be realized with a total length of about 5 meters (m) and a drag coefficient of 0.23. Volkswagen has now also effectively confirmed a European version of the ID. AERO, set to "roll off the assembly line" as early as 2023 from its Emden plant, possibly with one for the US market to follow.
