It's funky and weird and almost certainly not coming to the US.

It's the company's premiere concept car here at IAA in Munich, Germany.

It's based on the MEB platform, the same as the ID 4, but shortened and with a front-drive layout.

Front overhangs? Not so much, but the charger is tucked in here.

It all looks mighty cool -- but good chance it's not coming to the US. Sorry!
