Volkswagen Group has released design sketches of the ID. AERO, the company’s first fully-electric limousine for the Chinese automobile market. Like all models in the ID. family, the new limousine is based on Volkswagen’s Modular Electric Drive Matrix (MEB).
The future production version of the ID. AERO sees Volkswagen expand its ID. family in the high-volume upper-middle class segment, and accelerate its electric offensive within the framework of its ACCELERATE strategy.
Features of the pre-production study are the aerodynamic front and roof, which can help reduce energy consumption and increase range.
In a press release, VW says: ‘The production version of the ID. AERO is expected to go on sale in the Chinese automobile market in the second half of 2023. The corresponding production model for the North American and European market will be presented in 2023. Production of the series version of the ID. AERO for the European and North American automobile market will then start at the Volkswagen plant in Emden’.
Around 184,000 people currently work at Volkswagen worldwide. In addition, there are more than 10,000 trading companies and service partners with 86,000 employees.
The digital world premiere of the pre-production car will take place on Monday, 27 June, at 14:00 (CEST).
