The crossover could be the most important model in VW's pivot to electric powertrains.

Volkswagen has introduced a revised ID Crozz, bridging the gap between the original Crozz concept and a future production EV.

The first Crozz was revealed just a few months ago as the third body style in VW's new 'ID' sub-brand, which will eventually encompass several EVs based on the new MEB modular platform architecture.

Perhaps aware that some customers might prefer to see a realistic preview instead of another sci-fi design study, the company has quickly followed up with the toned-down Crozz II.

The second concept retains the Crozz' "four-door coupe" profile, but with less exaggerated proportions and a front end that meshes with the design language of VW's latest production lineup. VW says the LED headlights have also taken a step toward the showroom.

Designers have revised the interior, though a rectangular steering wheel and missing B-pillar are unlikely to carry through to the assembly line.

Dual electric motors provide 302 horsepower to all four wheels, with an estimated range of 311 miles according to the generous NEDC test cycle.

The Crozz is still a few years away from its 2020 production target. It will be sold alongside an all-electric hatchback, essentially an EV successor to the current Golf.
