Concept cars

On our journey to develop the future of Volkswagen, we design and launch several concept cars globally every year. Through these vehicles, we are able to demonstrate the possibilities of design, technology and performance that could one day become a reality.

Our first pure electric, self-driving luxury limousine. Voice and AR enabled with a built-in chauffeur, the ID. Vizzion is expected to have a single charge range of over 400 miles.


The ID.R is our first electric car designed for motorsports. It is already redefining what an electric vehicle is capable of, setting new records at Pike’s Peak, Goodwood and the Nürburgring.
