The Aero could replace the Arteon and Passat in the near future.
The Aero B will be the production version of the ID. Space Vizzion concept.
The cars are expected to arrive in 2023.
There’s much good news woven into these reports. The principle being that the station wagon is not dead at Volkswagen for North America which also means that SUVs won’t completely take over our streets. The Volkswagen Aero and Aero B will see production in roughly two years time.
The ID. Space Vizzion concept stands out in our minds as non-premium midsize station wagons are dead in North America. The fact that Volkswagen will bring it back as a handsome and sleek EV will certainly make it a well-received offering by a market overly saturated with SUVs.
As we know, all of VW’s current-generation EVs are built upon the company’s highly flexible MEB EV platform. The ID.Vizzion concepts cars featured an 82-kWh battery pack however, according to FormaCar, a 111-kWh battery could become available for the cars that will be assembled on the updated MEB platform. This battery would provide up to 700 km (435 miles) of WLTP-rated range.
For both the Aero and Aero B, a rear-mounted 268-horsepower electric motor will standard while another electric motor on the front axle will increase output to 335 horsepower.
Production for the cars will be done at the VW Group’s plant in Emden, Germany, and should begin in 2023.
