VW ID. ROOMZZ
launch date 2021, initially in China
from the press release:
-floating dash panel: The digitalised steering wheel is conceptually integrated into the panel. As well as sensitive touch-screen areas, it has a 5.8-inch display that shows relevant information such as navigation instructions in autonomous mode. There is also an AR head-up display...
-“ID. Drive”. In the manual “ID. Drive” mode, the digital cockpit appears to hover in front of the driver along with the integrated steering wheel. The digital cockpit consists of a full glass-front panel. On the right-hand side of this panel, the 13.8" infotainment unit is integrated into a split screen and home button. The display is visually located in the centre of the vehicle, meaning it is easily reached by front-seat passengers and is easy to see for passengers in the back.
-“ID. Pilot”. If the driver presses down for longer than five seconds on VW logo on the steering wheel, they trigger the fully automated “ID. Pilot” mode (level 4).
- I like a lot the approach
- not sure if by 2021 the ID. Pilot (level 4) can be achieved
- I haven't seen any package protection for the mirrors
- great occupant ingress / egress
- advanced smart interior / exterior lights
- expected more for passengers
