Volkswagen gets into EV crossover game with ID Crozz concept

Sporting some good looks and VW's purpose-built EV platform, the ID Crozz has a greater chance of coming to life than you might think.

Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

It's lower and more compact than a Tiguan, yet the battery-electric platform means it has superior interior volume.

Its 48/52 front-rear weight distribution means it should handle pretty well, too.
