[Overseas Report from e Group] Whenever there is a large-scale auto show, the Volkswagen Night will appear as a repertoire of the Volkswagen Group. At this year’s Volkswagen Night at the Geneva International Motor Show, Volkswagen officially released the IDBuggy concept car, and the debut of this concept car reminded me of the Volkswagen Concept-T concept car that was unveiled in 2004.
From the modeling point of view, the ID Buggy concept car debuted at the Geneva International Motor Show is a Buggy-style concept car based on the concept of a beach car. The convertible and doorless design is easily reminiscent of the RV car design that was all the rage in Japanese design circles in the late 1980s. And the positioning of this Buggy is naturally similar to the Volkswagen Concept-T concept car that debuted in 2004.
From the details point of view, the brand-new Volkswagen IDBuggy concept car uses a lot of round and full shapes to build the body details that are already few. This is very different from the features built with small chamfer features that the Volkswagen Group is currently insisting on. I have talked about it more than once. Designing this kind of thing has always been repeated. After nearly ten years of hard and small chamfer design as the main surface feature, the future design circle will build light and shadow features with the fullness of large curved surfaces.
As a Buggy, the design of the Volkswagen ID Buggy concept car also outlines the whole with a flat shape. And to a certain extent, it emphasizes the relatively independent relationship between the tire and the body. The bottom of the car adopts a flat aluminum structure to meet the passability requirements. However, if we look at this ID Buggy concept car with a more pure definition of Buggy, we will find that its suspension travel does not meet a certain requirement. The most basic definition of a Buggy.
So obviously, the purpose of Volkswagen’s IDBuggy concept car is to finally settle on the adaptability of new energy power. In the past period of time, Volkswagen has launched a series of ID concept cars as an exploration of the new energy era and the intelligent era. The launch of the IDBuggy concept car this time is to make up for the outdoor use scene.
From the point of view of the power structure, the Volkswagen IDBuggy concept car uses a 62-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack as the power source, and the driving form is two electric motors on the front and rear axles. The total output power is 149 kW and the total output torque is 349 Nm. With the blessing of this set of power, the acceleration time of the Volkswagen ID Buggy concept car from zero to 100 kilometers is 7.2 seconds. However, the cruising range we are most concerned about for pure electric vehicles is not objective, and the cruising range of a single charge is 249 kilometers.
So, the question arises, as a Buggy, with a cruising range of 249 kilometers, can it meet the long-distance desert crossing? Obviously, this seems like a negative answer. So here comes the question, how do you think off-road vehicles should develop in the new energy era?
