Elegant design featuring aerodynamics, wraparound light strips and metallic paint. Stylistically, ID. AERO transfers the design of the ID. For the first time, a family member in a premium medium-sized segment sedan. The aerodynamically designed front end and roof allow air to flow optimally over the vehicle. Air flow is settled by a slightly retracted trailing edge with a separating edge. The sporty 22-inch two-tone wheels are designed in the style of a turbine and fit snugly into the wheel housing. Traditional door handles are replaced with illuminated touch surfaces, further reducing drag. At the top of the silhouette, a bold tornado line and a downwardly sloping roofline shape the design. Powerful shoulder section of ID. AERO is above the tornado. Contour lines make the electric sedan look flatter and give it a dynamic look.

ID. The AERO concept vehicle has a polar light blue metallic paint. This is a light metallic color shade where color pigments produce a golden sparkle effect under the right light conditions. The roof is painted in glossy black as opposed to the car body.

MEBs can be used in a variety of segments, from compact crossovers or SUVs and minibuses to spacious sedans. With ID. Therefore, AERO and MEB allow IDs. A family entering the medium-sized sedan segment. MEB also takes full advantage of the potential of electrical mobility, enabling long distances, maximum digital connectivity, and wireless update capabilities.

Production of the European version in Emden. The retail version of the ID is expected. AERO for Europe will roll off the assembly line at the Emden plant in 2023. With the mass production of electric vehicles, Emden will be one of the first Volkswagen plants of this type in Lower Saxony, making a decisive contribution to the electrification of the model range.
