The future is arriving at Lewisville Volkswagen — and in style. VW has been rolling out its ID. lineup of all-electric models, which have been steadily arriving at our dealership in Lewisville, Texas. The latest electric car being produced with the VW badge? The Volkswagen ID. AERO.

The ID. AERO show car is a midsize sedan that serves as a concept model for the automaker’s forthcoming production model. In other words, this one-off car is a preview of the futuristic finesse that the production-version ID. AERO will bear.

You’ll immediately notice how sleek the ID. AERO is compared to other VW sedans we sell at Lewisville Volkswagen. That’s because designers shaped this sedan with aerodynamics as the top priority. The sloping, elongated roofline, gently rounded angles, and extended wheelbase let the ID. AERO cut through the wind with little resistance.

VW ID.4 EV Wins CarBuzz 2021 Save The Planet Award

2021 Volkswagen ID.4 | Lewisville, TX

Many automakers are releasing new electric models for sale here in Lewisville, but not every EV wins an award as prestigious as CarBuzz’s Save The Planet Award — which the Volkswagen ID.4 electric SUV won at the end of 2021.

Save The Planet

CarBuzz only gives this award to electric-powered models that are capable, useful vehicles for daily life and not merely zero-emissions automobiles with no practical elements for your everyday needs. Plus, a Save The Planet Award-winner has to be fun to drive.

Premium Interior

As CarBuzz Editor-at-Large Jared Rosenholtz explained, “The rear-drive ID.4 offers respectable power for a compact crossover, while the dual-motor all-wheel-drive model dials up the excitement with nearly 300 horsepower. We loved the ID.4’s nimble driving manners and premium interior.”

Eco-Friendly

When Volkswagen designs a vehicle that’s made for gas-free, eco-friendly driving, the automaker doesn’t mess around. The brand’s engineers began by building a fresh electric vehicle from the ground up — literally. By creating the MEB electric vehicle architecture, Volkswagen is able to craft an EV that’s optimized for performance in ways traditional gas-powered vehicles aren’t, such as the implementation of an asynchronous electric motor on the front axle to strengthen its all-wheel drive.

This VW ID.4 EV award is further proof that the Volkswagen brand’s legacy of top-tier engineering lives on its in new generation of gas-free models. If you’re interested in going green here in Lewisville, Texas, ask about the ID.4 EV here at Lewisville Volkswagen.

New All-Electric ID.5 SUV Proves Volkswagen’s Commitment to Clean Energy

New All-Electric ID.5 SUV Proves Volkswagen’s Commitment to Clean Energy | Lewisville, TX

As Volkswagen continues its march toward a cleaner, more eco-friendly future, the automaker has expanded its ID lineup with another all-electric entry. In November, the company unveiled the ID.5, the first coupe-style SUV in the brand’s ID family of pure-electric models.

Slotting alongside the ID.3 and ID.4, the newly launched ID.5 and ID.5 GTX are battery-powered E-SUV coupes that possess the latest electric powertrain technology from Volkswagen. They use over-the-air software updates to stay up-to-date on its intuitive driving assistance systems and digital memory functions. 

What’s the difference between the VW ID.5 and ID.5 GTX? They use different powertrains and route power to the axles differently. The ID.5 is your standard EV setup with an electric motor in the rear, while the ID.5 GTX boosts performance with two e-motors, with each allocated to one of the SUV’s axles. This dual-motor configuration gives the ID.5 GTX responsive, efficient all-wheel-drive capability.

You’ll notice some design similarities between the VW ID.5 and the preceding electric SUV that Volkswagen released — the ID.4, which has already garnered plenty of praise for its eco-friendly design. What sets the all-electric ID.5 SUV apart is the dramatic slope of its roofline, which gives it a truly coupe-like profile.

The ID.5 is further proof that Volkswagen is committed to making the future of transportation cleaner and safer for everyone, implementing efforts like carbon-neutral manufacturing.

The Volkswagen Bus is Back — and It’s Electric

The Volkswagen Bus is Back, and It’s Electric | Lewisville, TX

When Volkswagen unveiled the I.D. Buzz concept electric vehicle, which was clearly inspired by the iconic second-generation Volkswagen Bus of the 1960s and 70s, it was met to near-universal acclaim. Now, VW says it plans to make a production version of its electric prototype, which will go on sale in the U.S. in 2022.

“Our goal is clear: we want to make the fully electric, fully connected car a bestseller around the world,” said Volkswagen chairman Dr. Herbert Diess. “The iconic car of the electric age must be a Volkswagen.”

The future electric VW Bus, like the brand’s other I.D. concepts, will ride on the new Modular Electric Drive platform, which is designed to maximize the potential of future electrification technologies. Though it’s informally known as a bus because of its exterior design, the I.D. Buzz concept is more like a stylish minivan or SUV with exceptionally flexible interior arrangements.

It has three rows of ultra-configurable seats, including front seats that can be turned to face the back of the vehicle. This is made possible by a fold-away steering wheel, which is just one of many innovations introduced by the I.D. Buzz concept. Other features include pop-up laser scanners in the roof and an augmented reality-enabled head-up display.

Whenever the I.D. Buzz goes into production, you can count on finding it at Lewisville Volkswagen in Lewisville, Texas.

Talking Cars Are No Longer Science Fiction Thanks to the VW ID.4

Talking Volkswagen ID.4 | Lewisville, TX

Many outdated depictions of life in modern times would have you believe that our vehicles should be commuting through the clouds and making appointments on our behalf. While we’re still a few years out from flying cars, Volkswagen’s new ID.4 lets you communicate with your vehicle in ways previously unheard of.

Though you won’t be having conversations with your Volkswagen any time soon, VW introduced a sophisticated dash light feature into the new ID.4. The dash light fixture is comprised of 54 miniscule LED lights that illuminate in different hues to communicate vital information to the driver and passengers.

When you sit in the driver’s seat of the ID.4, the dash light row will display a series of blue and white LEDs to welcome you and indicate that you are free to commence your drive. Upon standing up to exit the car, the ID.4’s light bar displays the reverse color scheme to wish you well.

Volkswagen also included a number of other dash light communications, including alerts for incoming phone calls, safety warnings, battery charge level, and navigation. Many more messages are expected to be rolled out.

The VW ID.4’s Coasting Feature Lets You Brake Naturally

VW 1D.4 Coasting Feature | Lewisville, TX

Volkswagen’s new all-electric SUV is a game changer for the future of electric vehicles. On top of its many unique features, one thing that makes the Volkswagen ID.4 stand out is how it uses regenerative braking by applying a coasting function.

The concept of regenerative braking is common in electric vehicles. When a driver lifts their foot off the accelerator pedal, the system detects the loss of pressure, triggering the recovery of electricity and automatic deceleration. However, the Volkswagen ID.4 functions differently.

Volkswagen designed the ID.4’ braking system to function similarly to a standard gas-powered vehicle. When a driver moves their foot from the right pedal, instead of applying regenerative braking, the ID.4 will coast. The ID.4 does still feature regenerative braking, although it activates when the left or brake pedal is used. This gives the driver a feeling of deceleration similar to that of a gas vehicle.

Volkswagen created the ID.4’s coasting and braking function like this in order to make the driving experience more predictable. By emphasizing predictability, familiarity, and driver comfort, the Volkswagen ID.4 SUV will power the way for electric vehicles in the future by normalizing the experience.
