It is slated to be an all-electric SUV and is to be initially launched in the Chinese market in 2021.
The planned new SUV is the latest move in Volkswagen's aggressive growth strategy in China, where electric cars are given preferential treatment by authorities. Continuing on VW's quirky naming scheme, the new electric SUV will be called the ID ROOMZZ and will fill the need for a large SUV within the ID series.
VW Chief Executive Herbert Diess said the ID ROOMZ will be the flagship electric vehicle to be launched by Volkswagen in China. Now, they want to add a touch of luxury to EVs by introducing the four-seat I.D. Roomzz SUV concept, and it's got some pretty unique doors.

Combining future IQ.Drive systems, the concept can glide fully automatically (Level 4 autonomous driving) through the traffic in ID. Pilot mode, where the occupants are provided with information via interactive light zones. This cannot only be adapted as per the passenger's personal wishes but also according to the respective driving mode.
