VW Concept Car Comes Sans Steering Wheel
Feb. 21, 2018—Volkswagen is set to unveil its latest concept car, tabbed the I.D. Vizzion, at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.
The vehicle’s most eye-opening element: it comes without a steering wheel. The new vehicle will be the fourth addition to the OEM’s I.D. lineup of concepts.
The I.D. Vizzion, according to The Verge, is a long, low sedan with no steering wheel or pedals, and it’s intended to exhibit how the company envisions a future in which car passengers are likely to use fully electronic, autonomous vehicles.
It’s also part of Volkswagen Group’s promise to add electric motors to its entire lineup by 2030; VW plans to introduce 20 electrified cars by 2025, as part of an aggressive push worth nearly $40 billion.
The Vizzion will feature a 111 kWh battery pack that should help the car last for more than 400 miles, according to VW. The car will also reportedly feature roughly 300 horsepower, and a top speed of better than 110 mph.
The Geneva Motor show is scheduled to run from March 8-18 in Switzerland.
