Innovative Technologies

The countdown to the future.

An innovation that hasn't been developed for the world of tomorrow, but for the world of the future: the world premiere of the I.D. at the Paris Motor Show marks the start of a journey into the future of driving. The launch of the I.D. as an electric vehicle in the compact class will get underway in 2020. As a study, the I.D. provides the first specific view of how fully-automated driving will look. This particular mode of driving will go live from 2025 onwards.
