The 15 minute charging will require 800v charging stations which of course don't exist yet, but interesting and promising

VW is showing an all new EV concept car they are calling the ID Concept:

It is ~15cm shorter than the Golf, but has a significantly longer wheelbase. They are saying 400-600km range for different battery packs - which is ~248-372 miles. Production is 2020 - which sounds realistic.

This is based on a ground-up new EV chassis, called MEB:

And it is not some "body" they are already building. It is not unlike the Nissan IDS Concept:

I have to wonder if we will be seeing this at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, NV beginning of 2017? The rear view camera's instead of side view mirrors is a concept they employed on the XL1 hybrid.

Did you write $50 a month? whoa. I'm on the east coast and thinking about leasing a 2017 eGolf for 3 years (I've had a Mercedes B-Class Electric for a flawless 3 years/32,000 miles but the lease is up) How do I get the best lease deal in the NY/NJ area? I can shop in NY area, Manhattan, and northern NJ........ my "dream" EV is the I.D. concept van. I know that is a long shot.

The first electric vehicle based on the new VW platform will be the I.D. Crozz, in 2020.

https://www.motor1.com/news/222850/vw-id-crozz-us-2020/

201HP rear motor and 101HP front motor - so four wheel drive.

Sorry for being skeptical, but I'll believe when I see it. Did VW plunk down enough cash to reserve a battery supply? If not, the rollout of the Crozz will look like what happened with the Hyundai Ioniq and probably soon to be "available" Kona.

Yes, VW has contracts with battery manufacturers totaling $24B USD covering many years into the future.

In the link you referenced, there is this quote: "So far the company has yet to decide on a supplier for North America." So that $24 billion is not for NA production. And yet VW announced they will be making the new EVs for USA in the USA. So where are the batteries coming from and when will VW pony up the cash or at least sign a contract? I'm still skeptical.
