Volkswagen has unveiled the fourth member of the electric I.D. family, the I.D. Vizzion concept, which is debuting this week at the Geneva Motor Show. Though the concept version is still several years away, the automaker did promise a trimmed down production version by 2022. The I.D. Vizzion concept follows the same approach that Volkswagen has shown with the I.D. Buzz and the I.D. Crozz.
Volkswagen revealed the I.D. Vizzion concept at the Geneva International Motor Show on Monday.
Furthermore, this concept blends the real and virtual worlds through the use of Microsoft's HoloLens - which can project holograms with which occupants can interact with via gesture control. To achieve such efficiency, the concept will use radar, sonar, cameras and laser scanners to sense and interpret the surroundings and the road ahead. It's got artificial intelligence.
Germany's Merkel set for challenges in her fourth term
The agreement was reached more than five months after Merkel's CDU/CSU party alliance won the majority in general elections. It also came after Martin Schulz was forced to hand over the reins as chief of the Social Democrat Party.
Roughly the size of a Volkswagen Passat mid-size sedan, the ID Vizzion contains the interior volume of a much larger sedan.
The auto will learn what each driver and passenger likes loading temperature settings and top playlists when you get in.
Volkswagen says the I.D. Vizzion is designed for level 5 autonomy which means fully autonomous driving without any need for human intervention. Its 111-kWh battery pack should provide a range of around 300 miles. 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.
CDC Reports Sharp Increase in Opioid Overdoses Emergency Room Visits
Schuchat said she is cautiously optimistic that strategies implemented in these states to combat opioid addiction may be working. Beforehand the office took a gander at death from opioids, which fall behind reports from crisis rooms.
According to The Verge, the exterior of the vehicle looks like that of a low-riding Lucid Air EV.
The basis for the big one-box luxury vehicle is Volkswagen's MEB (modularen elektrik baukasten or modular electric architecture) platform. Inside, the cabin is devoid of the usual driver controls - no steering wheel, no pedals and no interior controls.
Washington governor signs first state law to protect net neutrality
That has predictably triggered a massive protest, one that now includes some of the largest internet companies in the world. A vote by the Federal Communications Commission on December 14, 2017 will decide the fate of net neutrality .
And even before that, from 2020 onwards, the German brand will be launching, in quick succession, newly developed electric vehicles with long driving ranges and visionary design which could feature not only autonomous driving but a host of high-tech features most of which would have been regarded as motoring Sci-Fi only a few years ago. Just like any other member of the family, Vizzion is also built using the MEB (Modular Electric Matrix) platform, which promises low-priced and longer ranges. Volkswagen believes this performance will be possible in very near future. "Volkswagen is about designing products that are liked by many, many people and this shows where we are going". It's not where we are going. "We could have gone further".
