The new all-electric sedan will have a similar design to the VW ID lineup. The front end is short and low to improve aerodynamic performance, and the look of the lower grille and headlights is reminiscent of ID.4 SUVs. The grille is still camouflaged but is likely to be smaller and closed on the production car. The photos show what the car could look like when it goes on sale in 2023.

Aero B will go on sale next year. The Aero B was first shown as a concept, dubbed the ID. Vizzion at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. We expect the finished car name to follow the traditional naming convention for identifiers. In 2018, Volkswagen bosses promised that the production sedan would be capable of 600 km (327 miles) on a single charge, but with the imminent arrival of an updated MEB platform, the Aero B could surpass that figure.

Last month, Volkswagen unveiled "improvements" to the MEB platform, which may first appear on the Aero B. The new battery and engine system will be able to provide a range of 435 miles (700 km) on charge, while the maximum recharge speed of the MEB platform will be increased. from 150 kW to 200 kW, so a 10 to 80 percent replenishment should take less than half an hour. Given the Aero B's relatively long wheelbase, VW should be able to fit its largest 77kWh battery without a hitch.

Inside, the Aero B will most likely feature a compact digital instrument cluster and 10-inch infotainment system like the rest of the MEB-based Volkswagen models, with the potential for a larger 12-inch screen in high-spec versions.
