VW's fourth I.D. concept is a fully autonomous sedan

So far, Volkswagen has three vehicles in its I.D. concept car line, an affordable hatchback, a crossover and the Microbus-inspired I.D. Buzz.

They all predict the future products of VW, and the line will get bigger at this year's Geneva Motor Show with the I.D. Vizzion luxury sedan. And its party trick is being fully autonomous.

Followers of VW's I.D. cars will recognize that most of them feature autonomy at some level, with steering wheels that can disappear into the dashboard. But that's where they differ from the Vizzion — they actually have steering wheels. The I.D. Vizzion has no steering wheel, favoring full autonomy all the time. In fact, there aren't really any physical controls anywhere except a central knob in the front and rear, and passengers interact with the car via voice and gesture controls. Speaking of passengers, you can get a feel for the up-market aim of this car by the fact that it's nearly 17-feet long but has accommodations for only four people.

Powering the car are two electric motors making about 302 horsepower, just like the I.D. Crozz crossover. VW estimates the Vizzion will have a range of about 413 miles, about 100 more than the Crozz. Also, because of the dual motors, the Vizzion has all-wheel drive.

VW hasn't shown actual photos of the car, but the renderings the company provided give us a good preview. The car looks quite a bit like other futuristic electric cars such as the Faraday Future FF91 and the Lucid Motors Air with a very low, steeply raked roofline and a greenhouse that spans almost the entire car. The difference of course being that the Vizzion has a bit more bulge in the fenders, a familial fascia and VW badges.

We'll see the whole car revealed at the Geneva Motor Show. We should also have more details on features and its future at the reveal. We do expect VW intends to bring it to production eventually, since the original I.D., the Crozz, and the Buzz have all been confirmed for production. Only the Crozz and Buzz have been confirmed for the U.S., but the Vizzion would likely do well in America, too.
