By 2025, Volkswagen aims to offer around 23 all-electric models in its product line-up. Updated headlights, a new lower front fascia and tweaks to the rear are more production ready than before. It will inspire a production model which will fall into Volkswagen's goal of introducing 23 electric vehicles by 2025, with this SUV set to arrive by around 2020. B-pillars were omitted in the I.D. Crozz, so that the large swinging and sliding doors can be opened wide, and it is even possible to transport a cross bike without any trouble.

Inside, the integration of the battery pack into the car's floor results in an open-space area, which Volkswagen describes as "lounge-like" and featuring four individual seats.

Improved habitability comes courtesy of a newly-developed CleanAir system, which ensures a supply of clean air to the interior. Underscoring that similarity, Volkswagen, like BMW, employs the anomalous "four-door coupe" term to describe this latest CROZZ, and characterized this version as closer to production than its predecessor. The driver can let the vehicle take over the reins in I.D. Pilot autonomous driving mode, which can be activated or deactivated by voice commands. The I.D. Crozz features five Smart Lights, too, which work in conjunction with the voice control setup, as well as gesture control for the illuminated panoramic roof. Output is rated at 225kW, capable of propelling the concept up to a top speed of 180km/h. The high-performance battery can be charged to 80 per cent of its energy capacity in 30 minutes using a fast-charging system. In addition, the I.D. Buzz will enter the market in 2022.

First floated at the 2016 Paris Auto Show, the I.D. initials have evolved to be the prefix for a whole family of Volkswagen EV concepts sharing a common architecture, and I.D. Additionally, the I.D. Crozz wears slightly redesigned headlamps over the Shanghai concept, though it is largely similar.
