German car manufacturer Volkswagen is now set to build an Electric Vehicle Crossover in the United States.

While many people are no doubt eager to purchase the all-electric Microbus, its long-awaited 2022 arrival will leave them ansty in the meantime.

If there’s any consolation however, it’s that an EV Crossover is set to arrive by 2020.

Volkswagen announced this revelation at the Los Angeles car show, adding that it will be riding their MEB modular platform.

That last bit is particularly significant because it will make it the first vehicle from the manufacturer to hit the U.S. with the MEB platform.

This new EV Crossover is said to share many similarities with the Volkswagen I.D. Crozz in terms of both style and substance. The I.D.Crozz- which had debuted originally in Shanghai, China before crossing over to Los Angeles, California- works with both a 201 horsepower rear-axle mounted motor for forward momentum; and a 101 horsepower front-axle mounted motor to boost the former. Both motors are powered by an 83 kilowatt hour (kWh) lithium-ion battery, which is kept out of sight within the floorboard. Volkswagen claims that this battery can reach upwards of 300 miles on a single charge, and can reach an 80 percent charge after a half hour of being plugged into the 150 kWh DC Charger.

 

Unfortunately for all those interested in Volkswagen’s newest offering, no more details have been released by the car manufacturer- or from anyone else, for that matter. But if everything that we do know is in fact true, then this EV will more than likely be extremely successful.

But only until after its release in 2020 will its success or failure be fully realized.
