Sep 29, 2016 04:24 AM EDT | Eve C.


The 2016 Paris Motor Show, which is also known as the as the Paris Mondial de l'Automobile, will be held from Oct. 1 to 16, and it will be open to the public. Apart from the world debut of different car models, Volkswagen has also found the event to launch the ID electric concept.

This must be a smart move for the traditional automaker since its name has been dragged into the diesel emission cheating scandal for a few months now. Fox News was able to gather a bit of detail about the upcoming model.

According to the news site, Volkswagen will be selling the first ID electric vehicle to the public on or before 2020. Furthermore, the ID has a single electric motor good for 167 horsepower and might offer between 250 and 370 miles of range and take just 15 minutes for an 80 percent recharge.
