The updated VW I.D. Crozz has a wide hood and coupe-like appearance.
VW preps EV crossover for China
Automotive News Europe | 2017/9/12

Volkswagen AG will showcase at the Frankfurt auto show a new version of its I.D. Crozz electric crossover -- a vehicle that eventually will be sold in China.
The updated concept further reveals what the future production version will look like. The concept's front and rear end, in particular, indicate the look of a production model, VW said in a statement.

Volkswagen said the concept has a "highly contemporary SUV look" with a gloss black roof and a loungelike interior with four "variable" individual seats.
The concept and production versions will be underpinned by VW's new MEB architecture for electric vehicles, which allows the batteries to be integrated into the floor, freeing up space in the interior. 

Volkswagen showed the first concept of the coupe-styled I.D. Crozz at the Shanghai auto show this year, saying it heralded a production version due to go on sale in 2020.

The Crozz is part of Volkswagen¡¯s campaign to expand its range of electrified models in China.

The German automaker¡¯s joint venture with SAIC Motor Co. will produce two plug-in hybrid versions of the VW Tiguan and Skoda Kodiaq compact crossovers. They will hit the market in 2018. 
The Volkswagen brand plans to introduce five more EVs, plus six plug-in hybrids in China, from 2018 to 2020.
