The Volkswagen ID EV is supposed to launch in 2020 with a number of new technology features.

Volkswagen is all set to leave the diesel emission scandal behind by concentrating on electric vehicles. This is the reason that VW has recently announced that by the year 2025, most of the fleet of cars by company will be based on electric and semi-electric cars. 

These days Volkswagen is working on ID which is fully electric car. According to the company boss Klaus Bischoff, ID will completely reinvent the concept of an electric vehicle. He said that the motor in this car is moved to rear while the climate control system has been moved to the front of car.

This has made the dashboard to be moved forward by 200mm giving more space to driver and front passenger. This extra space will allow the users to make use of new technology that is called Augmented Heads up Display. The Augmented HUD will be introduced for the first time in ID by VW, according to AutoCar

Bischoff said that the system introduced in ID will be able to project any information and pictograms to appear in front of the driver. It would look as if the information is 15 meters away. The upshots and navigation direction will also appear as if they are printed on the road itself. 

The technology is supposed to expand in a few months after its official launch. The system will then be able to detect hurdles and pedestrians on road way ahead of time. It will alert the driver about pedestrian crossings, slippery slopes and carriageway too. 

The information will increase in its intensity and quality as the vehicle will connect to cloud system known as HERE. The HERE system is owned by Audi, BMW and Daimler which used high quality 3D maps for navigation.
