Volkswagen revealed its updated I.D. Crozz at this month’s Frankfurt Motor Show

It gives an even cleared indication of the direction that the German manufacturer is moving in with its eco-friendly offerings.

It’s one of a few brands focussed on satisfying our appetite for SUVs while also offering an electric powertrain.

Though we first saw the concept at the Shanghai Motor Show in April, this latest vehicle has been updated to bring it closer to production. Here’s what you need to know.

This is just the start

Volkswagen hopes to expand the number of electric cars it offers.

By 2020, its current range will be bolstered by three additional models, and by 2025 the Volkswagen Group plans to offer 23 all-electric models.

There’s a lot more room inside than you’d expect

As the I.D. Crozz uses an all-electric powertrain, it doesn’t feature a traditional transmission tunnel running the length of the car.

As a result of this, there’s a lot of interior space and it’s easily accessible thanks to large swinging and sliding doors.

It monitors how clean the air is

A new system called CleanAir has been designed for the concept.

It ensures that all the air flowing inside the cabin is clean, while a menu provides information on the quality of it. With this electric car you’ll not only be confident of the emission free air around it but also inside.

It’s equipped with fully-autonomous technology

The I.D. Crozz is fitted with a fully automated driving mode, and this can be activated or deactivated via voice instruction.

Having to concentrate while stuck in traffic jams could be a thing of the past and it also means your battery power is used more efficiently.

There’s four-wheel-drive on offer – but this doesn’t harm the range

The I.D. Crozz has a four-wheel-drive powertrain to give it better capability in poor conditions.

However, this doesn’t cut the range – Volkswagen claims that it’ll be able to travel around 310 miles on a single charge.
