“The ID CROZZ is a combination of a four-door coupe and sports utility vehicle in one. A sporty, interactively designed zero-emission all-rounder with an all-electric drive delivering a power of 225 kW. The car has a top speed of 180 km/h and can cover up to 500 km (NEDC) on one battery charge. A new feature is a movable light blind in the illuminated panoramic roof that creates ambient lighting both inside and on the exterior. The car is compact yet spacious owing to the flexible MEB platform,” it said.

“The MEB provides an ideal platform, as the wide axles set far apart create dynamic proportions and thus become a springboard for a new era of avant-garde design. The platform can also develop our electric racing cars used for motorsport.”
