The „I.D.“ is already being street tested. So far, it’s got a rather limited range of 15 kilometres and a top speed of just 30 kilometres an hour. But set to launch in 2020, there’s still plenty time for improvements. VW plans to increase the „I.D.“s range to between 400 and 600 kilometres, and boost its top speed to 160 kilometres an hour. Its electric motor delivers and output of 125 kilowatts directly to the rear axle.
