If you aren’t already, I’m sure you’re wondering what the benefits of this app are? Read on below for more information.

Volkswagen Owner?

Take extra care of your Volkswagen, whether you have a new Volkswagen Scirocco or a used Golf. With My Volkswagen, you can keep track of current service history, meaning you’ll never have to worry about your next service again.

To combat this, Volkswagen has found a solution as you can save your configurations when you browse through My Volkswagen, making us the perfect partner to help you find your dream car.

Tidying up your glovebox

Save time looking through owners manuals, as the app now has a handy section with all this information stored for you! Remove the need to rummage in the glove-box as the warning lights have all been uploaded to stop you asking age old questions like ‘What does that light mean?’ Is it important?’ ‘Should I get it checked?’ Now you can simply log on online or open the app to check these out while you’re on the go and then book into a repair centre to get your car looked at.

Volkswagen I.D. Crozz introduced at Shanghai Motor Show

The desire to find a more sustainable and reliable fuel for cars is one that has swept the motoring industry for decades, but in the last ten years the progress being made is starting to bear fruit and Volkswagen are at the very front of this revolution.

With hybrids-a-plenty and remarkably fuel efficient petrol and diesel engines already available, the German manufacturer has looked to spearhead a move into the electric market. The new I.D. Crozz shown off at this year’s Shanghai Motor Show is the third member introduced to the VW E.V. family and could go on sale as soon as 2020.

The brands latest I.D. model is substantially larger than either of the first two debutants. Its Crossover stature means the I.D. Crozz stands 200mm longer and 50mm wider than the current Volkswagen Tiguan. The new four-seat concept will offer ample cabin space thanks to the manufacturer’s hugely ergonomic MEB platform, designed especially with E.V.’s in mind. The increase in cabin space isn’t detrimental to luggage space either, as the I.D. Crozz delivers 515 litres for your belongings.


Aesthetic-wise, the Crozz takes great inspiration from both the I.D. Buzz microbus and I.D. hatchback already introduced. The electric Crossover will feature animated LED lights to communicate with other commuters on the road, and will now deliver front lighting strips so the motion is more realistic and slick.

The power for the I.D. Crozz will come from a duo of electric motors. The front axle will be powered by a 75KW unit whilst the rear gets a more powerful 150KW. This pair combine to deliver a remarkable 302bhp and when fused together with the 83kWh battery you can reach a staggering 310 mile range!

The I.D. Crozz is designed to mainly focus on being rear-wheel drive however as driving conditions become more hazardous its intuitive technology switches to four-wheel drive to create a more stable driving atmosphere.

The I.D. Crozz is fully autonomous and when this mode is selected, the steering wheel fluidly slides into the dash to create a more relaxing and spacious experience. A new 10.2 inch touchscreen system has been fitted to allow you easy-control of the cars technologies; whether it be air-con or audio player.

Volkswagen boss Dr Herbert Diess has already confirmed the car is nearing production so we can expect to see the reality of this stunning concept within the next three years. Exciting times lie ahead for the German giants, be sure to keep your eyes peeled on more from the I.D. series.
