  • Shanghai Auto Show

Eager to tap into China's growing market for electric vehicles, more than 1,000 manufacturers have descended on Shanghai for the 17th Shanghai International Automobile Industry Exhibition.

Dubbed "I.D. Crozz" - a goofy name VW nearly certainly won't use for the production model - the vehicle will deliver 302 horsepower, 311 miles of range and can be driven in autonomous mode, VW said.

The first member of VW's new electric vehicle family will be a Golf-sized hatch arriving in 2020 and previewed by the first I.D. concept.

To be sure, even as automakers renew commitments to produce more NEVs, it's not clear how aggressively they would push those cars in the marketplace.

The CUV of the I.D. family was conceptualised as a sporty, interactively designed zero-emission all-rounder - with electric all-wheel drive that is just as impressive in the urban environment as it is on the rough terrain covered in an adventurous and active lifestyle. Volkswagen has also confirmed that the I.D. Crozz electric SUV will enter production in 2020 and will be a part of the new-gen 30 electric cars that the brand plans to launch by 2025.

The 4,625mm-long I.D. Crozz delivers interior space roughly in line with the new extended-wheelbase Tiguan Allspace, though it lacks the internal combustion production car's third row of seating.

Processions marking the resurrection were also held in churches. "At our baptism we accepted the New Life of Christ". D' Souza SJ, in his homily, said obedience to God is a blessing and disobedience to God will lead to disaster.

Nearly every global and Chinese auto brand is displaying at least one electric concept vehicle, if not a market-ready model. By comparison, that's a full 100 kW more than the I.D. concept hatchback from the Paris motor show previous year but 50 kW less than Volkswagen claims for the I.D. Buzz.

One can shift to autonomous from human driving mode with a touch on the VW badge on the steering wheel for three seconds.

An augmented-reality head-up display projects information such as navigation directions between seven to 15 metres ahead of the auto.

On top of that, there are digital door panels for rear-seat occupants that appear to be suspended in midair and are used to operate the electrically actuated doors, the central locking system, and the electric windows. They also create ambient lighting visible inside and out.

VW also says the I.D. Crozz will also able to send and receive packages, while you are out and about - perhaps taking your jet pack in for servicing. Interior space is similar as well, although the I.D. Crozz enjoys greater versatility thanks to the packaging of its electric drivetrain. This is because the I.D. "Production will start in 2020", said Herbert Diess, VW chairman of the board of Management, in a release.

That's an indicator of the future; VW's past returns to dealerships in the form of a limited number of 2015 Volkswagen TDI diesel cars back on sale after modifications to make them comply with EPA emission limits. Using the multi-profile capabilities of Volkswagen User-ID, the vehicle recognizes authorized operators and unlocks the doors and sets various operating systems to their personal profile preferences.
