Volkswagen, for example, is one carmaker that has put a lot of effort into showing off in China’s largest city. This year, the German brand is set to unveil an all-new electric concept SUV at the 2019 Shanghai Motor Show.

The vehicle is called the I.D. Roomzz, and it will be joining the I.D. Crozz, the I.D. Buzz, the I.D. Vizzion, and the I.D. Buggy inside the company’s EV stable. All cars will be on display at the Shanghai event, so if you’re interested in seeing what an electric future courtesy of Volkswagen will look like, you know where to be from April 16th to 24th.

The manufacturer also promises a flexible interior with a completely new seating configuration, customizable lighting, and premium materials.

It’s not exactly too much to go by, but then again, the global reveal isn’t too far off from now.
