The Volkswagen brand has released new design sketches of the ID. AERO, its first electric limousine for the Chinese market. The OEM confirmed that the digital world premiere of the EV’s pre-production study will take place on Monday June 27, at 14:00 CEST (08:00 ET).

Like other models in Volkswagen’s ID. family of EVs, the ID. AERO is based on the Modular Electric Drive Matrix (MEB) platform. It also forms a part of the OEM’s ACCELERATE electrification strategy while expanding the ID. range within the high-volume upper-middle class segment.

The production version of the ID. AERO is expected to go on sale in the Chinese automobile market in the second half of 2023. A corresponding production model for the North American and European markets will be presented in the same year. While Volkswagen has not confirmed when this version of the electric limousine will enter production, it did confirm that it will be manufactured at its plant in Emden, Germany.
