Before Volkswagen offers North American consumers the all-electric Microbus redux we've been eagerly awaiting, the German giant will send us an EV crossover SUV. VW announced the plan at the Los Angeles auto show, saying the production model will follow the design philosophy of the I.D. Crozz concept. The forthcoming crossover will arrive in 2020 and be the first U.S.-bound Volkswagen to ride on the company's MEB modular platform. Designed specifically for electric vehicles, the MEB platform also will form the basis of the reborn Bus, which will reach U.S. roads in 2022 and draw heavily from the I.D. Buzz concept.

Caterpillar to Crossover : Volkswagen Unveils I.D. Crozz Mark II at Frankfurt Motor Show. VW claims all the I.D. cars will make it into production by the 2020 s using its EV -specific MEB platform, with batteries and electric motors housed in the floor.

Expect the production Volkswagen EV crossover SUV to share its fastback styling with the I.D. Crozz concept and cast a shadow similar in size to the Tiguan compact crossover SUV. The I.D. Crozz concept, originally revealed in Shanghai and shown for the first time in North America in L.A., features a pair of electric motors that produce a combined 302 horsepower. The concept primarily relies on its 201-hp rear-axle-mounted motor for forward momentum. If additional traction or power is needed, the 101-hp front-axle-mounted motor can step in and assist.

Power to the two motors comes courtesy of an 83-kWh lithium-ion battery pack that lives in the floorboard. Volkswagen claims the battery pack is capable of pushing the concept approximately 300 miles on a single charge. Additionally, Volkswagen maintains that the battery pack can recuperate 80 percent of its charge in half an hour when plugged into a 150-kW DC charger.

Volkswagen Recalls 766,000 Cars Globally for Brake Issue

  Volkswagen Recalls 766,000 Cars Globally for Brake Issue Volkswagen is issuing a global recall for 766,000 cars due to an issue with anti-lock brakes, according to Reuters. Under some conditions, such as "when the driver over-steers, under-steers or slams on the brakes," the anti-lock brake system may fail. The issue can be fixed with a software update. Reuters reported Saturday that 385,000 VWs, Audis, and Skodas were being recalled in Germany. Now just five days later, 381,000 more cars globally have been added to the recall. No official details have been released yet by Volkswagen as to what cars are covered and what exactly this recall is for. The German automotive industry publication KFZ-Betrieb reports that the issue with the brakes "is a thermomechanical overload in the control unit for the ABS and ESP." Between two reports in KFZ-Betrieb, the cars affected are Caddy, Eos, Golf, Golf Plus, Jetta, and Scirocco from May 2008 to August 2010 and Skoda Octavias and Superbs from June 2008 to June 2009. Some 2009 Audi A3s will be recalled as well. According to Blich.ch, owners of the affected cars will start to be notified on July 17. Thankfully for Volkswagen, this issues looks like it can be fixed with a simple software update, which will be significantly cheaper than the Dieselgate recall. But any money spent on recalls is something Volkswagen does not need at this point. The automaker and all of its brands were just starting to turn profits again after the huge losses related to the diesel recall and buy-back program.

Volkswagen plans to introduce four affordable, all-electric cars over the next few years. Volkswagen revealed the I.D. Crozz electric crossover vehicle concept at the Shanghai auto show in April 2017. It's expected to inspire a production vehicle in 2020 .

Unsurprisingly, the I.D. Crozz is rife with concept car kit. Although we suspect the production model will gain a B-pillar and lose the concept's sliding rear doors, one feature that Volkswagen promises will see the light of day is I.D. Pilot. Expected to arrive in 2025, I.D. Pilot uses four retractable roof-mounted laser scanners, ultrasonic and radar sensors, and side- and front-view cameras to autonomously pilot the vehicle through traffic.

We still have some months until we know official information about Volkswagen's production-bound electric crossover. However, if the mass manufactured product can offer the performance, driving range, and recharge time of the I.D. Crozz concept at a reasonable price point, then we suspect Volkswagen will have a hit on its hands come 2020.
