Volkswagen has pulled the wraps from its new e-Co-Motion concept, showcasing its electric mobility technology and previewing the next generation of its commercial range.
Power for the e-Co-Motion is provided by an electric motor mounted at the rear axle, mated to a single-speed planetary transmission and a low-positioned battery pack.
Output is rated at 50kW in continuous running and a maximum output of 85kW when needed, and torque is listed at 270Nm.
Three different types of battery pack can be fitted to the e-Co-Motion, offering between 100 and 200 kilometres driving range between charges.
The carmaker promises a cargo capacity of 800kg, and 4.6m3 in space, thanks in part to an extra-low positioning of the drive unit, battery and transmission.
Volkswagen has yet to confirm plans for a production version of the e-Co-Motion, but it is certainly likely that its styling offers a glimpse of the next-generation Transporter and Caddy models.
