Volkswagen ID concept. Aero is a harbinger of a new flagship

Electric sedan Volkswagen ID. Aero is just as elegant as the recently published sketch promised. So – at least its concept, which the carmaker has just introduced.

The centerpiece of the bow’s design is the carmaker’s logo, from which a luminous line emerges on both sides. We can probably expect this in the production version as well. The shapes of the bumpers, mirrors and the “greenhouse”, which looks like an elongated cabin of the already sold ID.4, probably too.

Especially on the sides of the concept ID. Aero is reminiscent of other members of the ID family, and perhaps many changes may not take place except for the clicks. On the contrary, the rear lamps say perhaps the most that we are looking at the concept, not the production car.
