Business drivers, here is your next lease car: the electric Volkswagen Aero B

It will take a while before the Volkswagen Aero B comes on the market, by the way. Production will not start until 2023. It is not yet known what the final name of the Aero B will be. We do know that it will be available as a sedan and as a station wagon, with an electric range of up to 700 kilometers.

Electric Volkswagen Passat with Phaeton interior

We already got a taste of the Aero B in March 2018, when Volkswagen issued the ID. Vizzion study model. At the end of 2019, the station wagon variant of this followed: the ID. space vision. Both fall into the Passat category in terms of dimensions, but offer more space in the interior than the old Volkswagen Phaeton due to their compact electric powertrain.

Volkswagen Aero B is on the same platform as ID.3 and ID.4

And the same will also apply to the Aero B. The model is on the MEB platform of the ID.3, ID.4 and ID.5, which means that it has rear-wheel drive as standard and is also available with 4WD. The largest battery that Volkswagen puts in the Aero B is 83 kWh. In comparison, 77 kWh is the maximum in current ID. models.

The Aero B can be charged quickly with a maximum of 200 kW

The Aero B is reportedly not going to be progressive in the field of fast charging. At the correct charging station, it achieves a charging speed of up to 200 kW. That’s much better than the ID.3, ID.4 and ID.5 – which give up at 125 kW – but less than the Hyundai Ioniq 5 (220 kW), Kia EV6 (240 kW), Tesla Model 3 / Y (250 kW) and Audi E-Tron GT / Porsche Taycan (270 kW).
