Volkswagen AG (VOW.XE) said Tuesday that it plans to expand its range of electric cars in the coming years-in what it refers to as an "electrical offensive"-following the launch of its I.D. Crozz II sports utility vehicle". The company has already showcased the I.D, I.D Buzz concepts previously and in the ongoing 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show it unveiled its I.D Crozz electric SUV concept.

Around $20 billion will be spent on developing electric vehicles which is double the budget originally proposed by VW earlier this year. VW expects up to one in four of its new models to be all-electric by that time, and plans to purchase over 150 gigawatt-hours of lithium-ion batteries to power all of those cars.

Before the major scandal that erupted two years ago because lowering Volkswagen indicators of harmful emissions, the automaker took nearly no notice of the market development of electric vehicles and unmanned vehicles.

"Our task is to make modern technology available to many people".

VW also announced it is now looking into battery technology, tackling the issue of battery range, especially as VW's fleet alone will need 150 gigawatt hours of ion batteries by 2025. The company is also looking into longer life auto batteries that could in the future offer a driving range of over 370 miles in one charge. During Auto Shanghai, where it was first introduced, the I.D. Crozz still looked completely like a concept vehicle.

The concept's front and rear end designs, in particular, point more in the direction of a production model, VW said in a statement. The I.D. CROZZ makes a powerful and masculine impression with its wide bonnet, cleanly contoured wings and roof with a high-gloss black exterior finish. The Volkswagen brand is also setting up its first pilot line there to accumulate production know-how. VW claims it offers interior space on par with the Tiguan Allspace - a new long wheelbase version of the German manufacturer's SUV, together with a claimed 515-litres of boot space. With no B-pillar in the way, this provides plenty of room to see into the cabin. It features two conventional front hinged doors in the front and a pair of cantilever style doors at the rear.

In November 2016, the group announced its ambition to be the world's biggest electric carmaker by 2025, slashing 30,000 jobs as it frees up cash for investment in research and development into new technologies.

The new German crossover even has a menu that provides information on the quality of the air in the vehicle.
