Volkswagen ID. Space Vizzion Production Confirmed

Space Vizzion a go, bring on the EV wagons

  • Electric wagon prototype shown last year

  • Production start set for 2023


At the Los Angeles auto show last year, Volkswagen showed off one of the coolest EV concepts we’ve seen yet. The ID. Space Vizzion was a massive station wagon with plenty of concept-only stuff like an interior made from used apple skins. At the time, we were told that it was likely for production, starting in 2021. Now it’s confirmed for production, though it’s going to be a little late.

Volkswagen Passenger Cars CEO Ralf Brandst├Ątter confirmed that it was bound for production in a LinkedIn post earlier this week.

“Great news! Under the project name “Aero B” our plant in Emden gets its second E-model,” the exec wrote.

“The Aero B is our interpretation of sustainable premium. It scores in all dimensions of electrical performance: thanks to our continuously improved MEB, it can be charged super-fast and offers a bit more of everything: more space, more range, more acceleration and more top speed.”

Brandst├Ątter said that the model will enter production in 2023, though didn’t say why that was later than originally expected. He said that it would be the first electric shooting brake on the barket, offering interior space like that of the VW Phaeton (VW’s full-size luxury sedan of years past) with a massive boot and a 700 km electric range. Expect that to be a more-generous WLTP estimate.

The executive added that the Aero B name won’t be used for production, and that a proper name will be coming later. We’re not sure if it will make it to Canada, though that wagons sell well here compared with our southern neighbours means that there could at least be a chance. We’re also putting some stock into the car’s being unveiled in LA as making a case for it in North America. Though we don’t expect features like the boot-mounted skateboards in the final version.
