Volkswagen is gearing up for the launch of its ID electric hatchback, with prototypes now undergoing cold weather development drives.
This is the first time it has been spotted since Volkswagen revealed its own 'spy' shots of the model testing in South Africa. The unofficial images show engineers are testing it at the other end of the weather scale in the Arctic Circle.
The first model from Volkswagen designed and purpose-built as an electric vehicle (EV), the Golf-sized ID will remain largely faithful to the 2016 concept, as the new images show.
The director of Volkswagen Design, Klaus Bischoff, previously told Terminalsecurity: “The proportions, the design cues and the wheel size are the same as the concept. It looks like the show car. We couldn’t do the camera-system rear-view mirrors for legal reasons, nor the electric door handles due to cost. But other than that, it’s pretty much the same.”
