> All-new electric saloon caught testing
> Production car of the ID Vizzion concept
> YesAuto’s spy shots of test mule reveals close to production design
> Prices expected to be around £40,000
Volkswagen revealed its ID Vizzion concept back in 2018 as a sleek all-electric saloon. It would appear that the car isn’t far from production with our spy photographers capturing the car with very little disguise.
Reportedly now known as the Aero B, this EV looks to be around the same size as today’s Passat, but features a much more aerodynamically sympathetic design. While there isn’t much of a disguise applied to this test mule, the front and rear have been mocked up to mimic a combustion car. Expect unique lights and a fresh grille to feature on the finished EV.
This car still being a prototype, we don’t have any sort of confirmation on the drivetrain. However, the ID Vizzion concept car did promise a 327-mile electric range. Dual-motors gave this example all-wheel drive and 302bhp.
The concept also promised industry-leading AI-driven autonomous driving technology, however, it is unclear if such features will make production.
We don’t have a set date for the new Volkswagen Aero B – if it indeed takes that name – but we can have a good guess. This test mule is undergoing cold-weather testing, but its relative lack of disguise would suggest that it’s not too far from the finish line.
A late 2022 reveal to foreshadow a 2023 release seems likely.
It’s a bit too early to tell how much an Aero B will set you back, but we can take a look at current ID car pricing to see where it would sit in the range.
Likely being notably more costly than the ID.3, and maybe marketed as a little more luxurious than an ID.4 SUV, the Aero B could arrive with a £40,000 price tag when it goes on sale.
