Volkswagen has released exclusive design sketches of the ID. AERO, the first fully-electric limousine for the Chinese market.

The digital world premiere of the pre-production study will take place on Monday, 27 June, at 14:00 (CEST)/ 5.30pm IST.

At first glance, the new concept car impresses with its outstanding aerodynamics, elegant design and generous space.

The future production version of the ID. AERO sees Volkswagen expand its ID. family in the high-volume upper-middle class segment, and accelerate its electric offensive within the framework of the ACCELERATE strategy.

Like all models in the ID. family, the new limousine is based on Volkswagen’s Modular Electric Drive Matrix (MEB). Stylistically, it also follows the unmistakable design language of the ID. family. For instance, the exterior design of the ID. AERO is flowing and precise. Particularly striking features of the pre-production study are the aerodynamic front and roof, which help to reduce energy consumption and increase range.

The production version of the ID. AERO is expected to go on sale in the Chinese automobile market in the second half of 2023. The corresponding production model for the North American and European market will be presented in 2023. Production of the series version of the ID. AERO for the European and North American automobile market will then start at the Volkswagen plant in Emden.
