Volkswagen has unveiled their first-ever all-electric sedan, the ID. AERO.

As previously reported, the ID. AERO is based on Volkswagen’s modular electric drive matrix (MEB). It also shares much of the same styling with the brand’s other ID electric vehicles, namely the ID.4 and ID. BUZZ.

Specifically, the ID. AERO is powered by a 77 kWh battery pack, good for estimated ranges up to 385 miles. Exact horsepower and other performance statistics are yet to be disclosed. The MEB system also allows for short overhangs, a long wheelbase and, in turn, a more spacious interior.

Encompassing the vehicle is an array of ID.-typical design choices: honeycomb motifs and prominent lighting fixtures, specifically the white headlights and single-piece textured taillight bar. The door handles have been replaced by illuminated touch surfaces, aiding aerodynamics.

“With the ID. AERO show car, we are giving a preview of the next member of the VW electric vehicle family. A car with an emotional yet very aerodynamic design, a range of more than 600 kilometers, exceptional space and a premium interior,” says Ralf Brandstätter, Chief Executive Officer of the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand. “With our ACCELERATE strategy, we are driving the electrification of our model range at full speed. After the ID.4, this model will be our next world car."

The production version of the ID. AERO is expected to launch in the second half of 2023 in the Chinese market. The European model will also begin assembly sometime next year.
