Step into the fu­ture

Auto Today - - International News -

Volk­swa­gen is all set to get back to the fu­ture at the Geneva Mo­tor Show. The com­pany also put out a teaser of two new prod­ucts. The first one is the I.D. Vizzion Con­cept which is a pre­mium, fully-au­ton­o­mous sa­loon. The sedan fea­tures sui­cide doors at the back and the pil­lar­less de­sign stands out as well. The 111kWh lithium-ion bat­ter­ies are ex­pected to pro­vide a 660km plus range and top speed is ex­pected to be around 170kmph plus.

The sec­ond con­cept is per­haps a tad bit more ex­it­ing—the Cabri­o­let ver­sion of T-Roc. The T-ROC is based on the mod­u­lar trans­verse ma­trix (MQB) plat­form and is ex­pected to be loaded with a 184bhp turbo diesel en­gine con­nected via a newly de­vel­oped seven-speed DSG gear­box. It will also fea­ture Volk­swa­gen’s 4MOTION all wheel drive sys­tem. Three driv­ing modes – ‘Street’, ‘Of­froad’ and ‘Snow’ will al­low the T-Roc to take on var­i­ous ter­rain.
