Sportwagen is dead. Long live the Sportwagen. :wave:

Looks promising; will people shell out $40-45k for one though? Because that's what its going to cost.

Absolutely. We bought my wife a Touareg because there wasn't a new Passat wagon available when we were shopping. This is the literally car we wanted to buy - an electric station wagon. I really hope they bring this to the US market.

I had heard somwhere that VW would make a "sedan-ish" EV in Emden in 2022, so maybe this will transform into a kind of Arteon vehicle in production.



:laugh:
The sedan is a different model which has not been confirmed for North America.

It looks like we will get an Alltrack-like version of the wagon though.

Notably, the United States may receive a tougher, Alltrack-like variant of the vehicle. Expect such a model to sport bigger wheels and tires, additional body cladding, and a set of roof racks.

The Space Vizzion has been approved for production, starting in 2023. No word on North American sales.


https://www.autoblog.com/2020/11/17/vw-id-space-vizzion-production-confirmed/

The sleek Volkswagen ID. Space Vizzion station wagon (or shooting brake if you want to be fancy), is going into production. This is according to a LinkedIn post by VW's CEO Ralf Brandstätter.

While the post doesn't specifically mention the Space Vizzion, which made its debut at the L.A. Auto Show last year, we know that's the car in question because of two things. The car is specifically described as a shooting brake, and the photos feature the concept.

Specifications will likely be similar to the Space Vizzion. Brandstätter says it will have a 700-kilometer range. That comes out to 435 miles, but this is likely the generous European WLTP testing, so the 300-mile range listed for the concept would be more in line with EPA ratings. That would also be in the realm of possibility considering the ID.4 crossover, which will share the same MEB platform as the production Space Vizzion, can go 250 miles. The production Space Vizzion should be more aerodynamic and likely able to go farther than the ID.4. Motor options would probably mirror the ID.4 with a base 201-horsepower rear-drive model, and a potentially 302-horsepower all-wheel-drive version.

Great news! Under the project name "Aero B" our plant in Emden gets its second E-model. The Aero B is our interpretation of sustainable premium. It scores in all dimensions of electrical performance: thanks to our continuously improved MEB, it can be charged super-fast and offers a bit more of everything: more space, more range, more acceleration and more top speed. As an elegant Shooting Brake, it will be the first electric variant on the market. It impresses with high-quality interiors and a lot of space: classy and spacious like a Phaeton, along with huge trunk volume. And with 700km a real range hero. Its aerodynamic design ensures a top cw value and an extremely attractive high-tech appearance. A feast for the senses – and for all tech and design fans! A new, powerful e-model that will attract a lot of attention around the world. Sustainable, Premium, Great - Made in Emden! From 2023 it rolls off the production line. In doing so, we are making a clear commitment to the importance of the location and to future-proof employment. By 2025 at the latest, Volkswagen plans to sell a total of more than one million electric cars per year. Emden plays a crucial role on our #WayToZero!

I'd take that over an ID.4.
Same here; I prefer something that sits lower, and hopefully it also means better aero and thus better range.

But out of all the ID's that I've seen thus far, I'd still rather have the ID.3 that we can't get and which is already out on the roads of Europe. It's smaller ... I don't need or want "big" for a daily-driver.
