VW reveals 2020 electric car strategy at the Paris Motor Show.
The brand claims an 80 per cent re-charge can be achieved in 30 minutes – far quicker than the existing selection of electric cars.
If you haven’t got a specific charging point for the car at home VW will also provide the option to plug it into the mains as with current EVs.
That 375-mile range figure dwarfs that of the current e-Golf – which is a meagre 118 miles on a full charge.
The design – while futuristic – does have something very Golf about it in terms of styling – though one big difference is the sliding rear doors that aid easy access into the back seats.
On the inside Volkswagen has adopted an open-plan design to the cabin which is minimalist to say the least.
And it becomes even more sparse if you switch the car into the autonomous setting by tapping the VW logo on the steering wheel – which then retracts and sinks flush into the dash taking control of the vehicle away from the driver.
The front seats then slide back to put the occupants into a more relaxed, lounge-style position.
But this isn’t the only electric project Volkswagen has in the pipeline as it tries to remedy fitting millions of cars worldwide with emissions-cheating defeat devices.
