Volkswagen, at this week's Frankfurt motor show, has confirmed that a production version of its all-electric ID Crozz SUV concept will be revealed in 2020 alongside the emissions-free, four-door ID small vehicle.

An increase in restrictions and charges for gasoline and diesel vehicles have spurred on an increase of electric cars, though analyst said big investments in power networks and charging points are needed to serve the mass market. VW says the vehicle will still handle like a GTI and its battery can be charged to 80 percent in 30 minutes.
By locating the battery in the centre of the I.D. Crozz with a motor at each driven axle, the company says attains "an ideal weight distribution" which gives the EV crossover concept handling characteristics on par with that of a Golf GTI.
