I.D. Volkswagen. Buzz Cargo's concept makes his first music show in Los Angeles this week and, in many ways, he answers a question the market has been asking for what now now: Why should vans do not carry it all be electricity?
What is known as a range of concerns was the error for electric vehicles for some time, since the charging infrastructure is not available in the US and other parts of the world, and consumers want & # 39 ; r able to drive without anxiety to run without juice. I believe that this concern is mainly abused, as most people do not drive more than 100 or 150 miles a day, and many today's electricity can do so on a pay. Electricity makes even more sense in the middle of the distribution vehicles, especially in urban environments where supply trucks do many and many short journeys.
Give the I.D. Buzz Cargo, a version of which showed the first Volkswagen last year. It is now in L.A. and, Volkswagen said on Tuesday, could will be launched by 2022. We will not bank that, but the I.D. Buzz Cargo does a lot of things right, and here is the address we should be on.
It's based on the familiar skateboard architecture, and VW says it can have up to 340 miles on one payment, or more than enough to be a distribution vehicle, an urban environment or not. Inside, it's full of potato tricks:
The interior has to be customized for commercial use, down to the minimum details. Rather than two single seats, the vehicle has the concept of a driver seat and a double-sided seat on the side of the front passenger. The middle seat can be folded to open a workplace where the driver can use an integrated laptop. In the "I.D. Pilot" automatic, this can be done even when moving. The driver activates the autonomous mode by pushing the steering wheel for a few seconds, and then dragging it to the tool panel. Then the driver's seat can be turned 15 degrees to the right, enabling the computer on the board to be activated from the ideal ergonomic position.
Volkswagen has also thought, too much, for a back shelf system:
The cargo section starts behind the first seat and bulk row. In conjunction with the German specialized Sortimo, a shelf system was developed with sensors for the cargo area. This shelter system is connected to the vehicle through a specific customer-specific function control unit and a CAN interface. The data is transferred by WLAN to tablets in the cargo space and coetsp. Through a mobile radio network, the functional control unit could communicate with a company command system or control system, making it possible to track all articles on the shelves. This enables detailed online control of the type and number of goods and equipment in this futuristic Carrier.
I love all this, and it's nice to see that the VV minivan goes back to its root, as before the trip for hippies before that, the minibus was on for cargo first and mainly.
