VW dealers will have to be patient: The first of a trio of new EVs — which will be similar to the I.D. Crozz concept — won't make it to the U.S. until at least 2020. The electrified version of the I.D. Buzz minivan concept first shown at the 2017 Detroit auto show won't hit U.S. dealerships before 2022. In the meantime, VW will rework its gasoline-powered lineup, starting with the Golf family and then its sedans.
Electrification will come faster at Audi amid the brand's aggressive lineup revamp. Audi also is leading the groupwide experimentation of autonomous driving, beginning with the 2018 A8. Audi dealers in the U.S. will see three more electrified models in their showrooms before 2020.
