Most big automakers are pushing EVs like they are going out of style (were they ever even in style? Hmmm) and VW is one of those brands, promising as many as 30 new electric vehicles by 2025 and the production of one million I.D. vehicles a year by then as well. As such, we’ve seen a number of electric concepts, one of which was the I.D. CROZZ that was unveiled in Shanghai in 2017. As the doors to the Frankfurt Auto Show open, everyone will be greeted with a near identical concept called the CROZZ II, which is said to me a more-production-ready version of the original concept, and the basis for the car that will be hitting dealers as early as 2020, according to Volkswagen.
So what did VW change about the CROZZ to make it more production ready? Well, VW claims it has refined the headlights and even revamped the front and rear sections of the vehicle. But, if you really look at it, nothing has changed aesthetically aside from an increase in length, making the front end a bit longer. The front bumper is a little more defined, the LEDs in the headlights are a shade larger, and the VW emblem is cleaner to look at. Even the lower portion of the fascia is pretty much unchanged aside from the little fins on the skid plate and the body-colored horizontal louver that sits a quarter-inch higher than on the first CROZZ.
