Volkswagen just unveiled an electric SUV concept that could challenge Tesla's Model Y
Volkswagen is getting ready to unveil a suite of electric vehicles in 2020 — and its latest concept reveal at the Shanghai Auto Show hints that we should get ready for a small SUV.
On Tuesday, Volkswagen debuted its I.D. Crozz: an all-electric crossover SUV that “underlines just how diverse the range of future Volkswagen electric models is going to be,” the automaker wrote in a press release.
Volkswagen is far from the only automaker pursuing electric SUVs. Tesla is working on a battery-powered crossover called the Model Y. It will be smaller than the Model X and is expected to be more affordable than its high-end SUV.
Jaguar and Mercedes are also planning to release electric SUVs in 2018. And the Chevy Bolt is already on the market and gets a range of 248 miles.
The German automaker is investing heavily in battery-powered vehicles in response to its emissions cheating scandal. Volkswagen will introduce 30 electric or hybrid vehicles by 2035 and invest $2 billion in electric charging stations.
