Herbert Diess, chairman of the Volkswagen Brand Board of Management, had this to say at the Volkswagen Group Night: "The Volkswagen Brand will be investing 6 billion euros in electric mobility over the next five years. Our task is to make modern technology available to many people.

"This is especially important in times of technological transformation. One thing is clear: The Golf of the future must once again be a people's car!"

The new I.D. CROZZ is a crossover of an SUV and a four-door coupé, which has been further improved towards a production implementation.

The I.D. CROZZ is a sporty, zero-emission all-round vehicle that is designed to be interactive, and whose electric 4MOTION all-wheel drive system is as impressive on unpaved trails as it is in adverse weather conditions.

One electric motor works at the front axle and one at the rear, and torque distribution is controlled via an 'electric propshaft'.

The future generation of the I.D. family will extend the Volkswagen model range. In 2020, Volkswagen will already launch the compact, all-electric, four-door I.D. in the Golf segment, while launching the modern I.D. CROZZ in the SUV segment.
