VW will show second electric concept at Detroit

Volkswagen will show its second electric vehicle in its ID series at the Detroit International Auto Show in January, writes Brian Byrne.

Following the Golf-sized ID Concept revealed at Paris this year, the second vehicle will be an MPV in format, with style links going back to the original 'Bulli' Microbus.

It will be on the thoroughly modern Modular Electric Drive Kit platform, though, which underpins the first Concept.

Volkswagen is showcasing connectivity, all-electric drive, and also developing autonomous driving with the platform. One aspect of the upcoming Concept is a steering wheel that retracts into the dashboard when autonomous operation is possible.
