Volkswagen’s full-size electric SUV concept is called ID ROOMZZ
A big SUV with two zeds. ROOMZZ
A homage to The Internet’s so-bad-its-bad-but-funny The Room movie? A typo? Neither, sadly. Volkswagen has revealed the name and a very teasery teaser pic of its upcoming Big Electric SUV concept. It is called the ID ROOMZZ. Yes, that really is two zeds. ROOMZZ.
It follows the ID, the ID Crozz, the ID Buzz, the ID Vizzion and ID Buggy. Clearly, someone needs to replace the ‘z’ key on a VW computer fairly quickly.
The sensible stuff, then: it’ll become the sixth all-electric car Volkswagen intends to make after all the other stuff above, and will be based on VW’s new electric box ‘o bits (the MEB platform).
As you would expect of a Future Electric Car, it’ll offer some level of autonomy – in this case level 4, which means it’ll drive itself “without an active driver”. Yikes. We’re also promised “high-quality materials” and, most importantly, “customisable light”.
As to the name – ROOMZZ, in case you forgot – that refers to the new seat configuration. “The ID ROOMZZ shows us what we can expect from full-size electric SUVs in the future,” explains VW’s chief designer Klaus Bischoff.
It’ll go on display at the upcoming Shanghai Motor Show, before a series-production ROOMZZ (probably with a new, less zed-ey name) first hits the Chinese market in 2021.
