    Wait, if Audi truly got there, or knows how to get there (which I doubt...:rolleyes:), how much lower is T≡SLA with 2170 cells made in Gigafactory 1?!

    Volkswagen juicing up America... 50 kW CCS first, with later increases to 150 kW, even 350?

    This quote by their CEO is priceless:

    'Between 2020 and 2025, we have to start electrification'... :D

    Certainly a logical move to penetrate the yuuuge local market and spread e-Golf in China's polluted megalopolises!!

    Porsche Mission E range: electric... and electrified...? Should we even expect a Mission B (B for ‘Benzin’, i.e. gas in German...)? :D

    Are they gonna remind us every week for the next 100? :D. Seems like this ‘building up the ante’ is a bit premature, no?

    Not sure how many of you had seen this very late December video, with VW showing off their range of three prototypes in California. Reminder: ID hatchback & Crozz small SUV in 2020 (when else? ;)) and Minibus 2022. Reminder n°2: not sure how much production version will differ in design from these concept cars...



    Apologies for the entry pic... o_O Fortunately the video apart from that remains totally kosher...

    More showing off by VAG at the Geneva Auto Show as summarized by Elektrek....

    The ID Vizzion Concept car could be commercialized - in some form - by 2022, said Dr. Diess, Volkswagen MD...
    Range of 360 miles/600 kms quotes, without reference to which norm, hopefully the new WLTP. Actually with 111 kWh, this may be a solid 320+ miles on an EPA cycle...

    As a ‘top of the ID line’, don’t expect it to be ‘for the masses’... yet, objectively speaking, promising... if you believe in VW... ;)



    And for its live reveal, you can watch the last 7’ or so of this video :
