With a 300-ish mile range and a production variant slated for 2020, the I.D. is the first step in Volkswagen's move to dominate the EV market.
VW plans to sell the I.D. to the public in 2020, as a parallel to the gas-powered Golf.
In 2025, it will include fully autonomous driving systems, dubbed I.D. Pilot.
The I.D.'s 167-horsepower electric motor will hustle the EV along city streets and highways.
VW believes it will achieve between 248 and 373 miles on a single charge.
VW set the lofty goal of selling 1 million EVs per year by 2025.
