During the recent Los Angeles Auto Show, an exciting new Volkswagen model made its North American debut: the I.D. CROZZ Concept, a stylish compact electric SUV.
While it’s common for concept vehicles to never see the light of day as production vehicles, this is not the case with the I.D. CROZZ, for Volkswagen announced that a production version will be released in 2020. This puts it ahead of the expected 2022 release of the I.D. Buzz, which is an all-electric version of the iconic VW Bus.
