Volkswagen Teases the I.D. Vizzion With a Massive Glass Roof

The Volkswagen Vizzion Concept is shaping up to be a big reveal at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. Volkswagen got the teasing ball rolling with a pair of short teaser videos showing the car’s headlamps and a hologram on the interior. They didn’t really reveal much, so to make up for it, the German automaker released two new teasers, this time in the form of images. Unfortunately, other than a birds-eye-view of the concept and an image of a woman sitting in a floating chair with a cup of espresso in her hands, they don’t reveal much either.
The Volkswagen Vizzion Concept has all sorts of promise and potential, at least that’s what we think based on what we know about it
The Volkswagen Vizzion Concept has all sorts of promise and potential, at least that’s what we think based on what we know about it. Sadly, Volkswagen has done a good job keeping details about the concept under wraps, revealing only a few notable elements that will drive up the buzz surrounding the car. On that end, good job, Volkswagen.
The new teaser images tell us a few things. First, there’s the overhead photo of the cabin, which shows ambient LED lighting that appears to wrap around the shoulder lines of the concept. A separate lighting fixture can be seen from inside the car. Look closely, and you’ll notice that the two ends wrap around the same circular buttons that we see in one of the teaser videos for the concept. A smaller, triangular LED light fixture can also be seen, though we have no idea at this point as to what that’s highlighting exactly.
The Vizzion Concept is all about a future that probably won’t arrive for a long time.
The second teaser image is a bit more straightforward. It shows the back of one of the concept’s floating chairs. It also shows a woman sitting on the floating chair with a cup of espresso in one hand. While I’m convinced that the Geneva-bound concept will not have an actual woman inside the car, I get why this was used as a teaser image. This image is representative of what passengers can do when they’re onboard the Vizzion Concept. Whether it’s sipping a cup of espresso with those pinkies extended or it’s dozing off into dreamland, the concept’s stature as a fully automated, AI-enhanced concept makes it possible for passengers to do all sorts of things without having to worry about driving the car.
The Vizzion Concept is all about a future that probably won’t arrive for a long time. That’s not to say that the automaker can’t make it happen. For now, though, we’ll have to settle for waiting for production versions of the I.D. hatchback, the I.D. Crozz SUV, and I.D. Buzz Microbus. Once they’re all out — if they’re all out — maybe we can start dreaming of seeing the Vizzion Concept come to life.
Until then, we’re not getting our hopes up anytime soon.
