VW ID Roomzz full-size Chinese EV SUV due 2021

Another manufacturer encouraged by China's EV industrial policies.

The automaker has unveiled an ID Roomzz concept that previews a three-row SUV headed for production in 2021. It's stylistically similar to the smaller Crozz and will muster a comparable 301HP through its dual motors, but the added bulk cuts its range to 280 miles on the WLTP testing cycle and gives it a still-respectable 0-62MPH time of 6.6 seconds. In the concept, though, the interior is everything -- it's designed with self-driving tech in mind.

Saw that. With China selling over one million of the world's 1.8 million EVs (and variants) sold last year that's where the market is. From there they will go out to the EV friendly markets first before trickling down to the others.

From the time decision is made to go into production, the time is two years. Requests for quotes have to go out to suppliers, quotes have to come in, contracts awarded, supplier ramps up, production lines set up (assuming an old plant is used and not built), employees trained, production SNAFUs ironed out. Much flurry. Used to take 5 years but they steadily whittled that down, sloughing a lot of that off to the parts suppliers. With social media these days, introduction isn't left to the last minutes before deliveries start, they try to build up the buzz rather than spring anything on their competitors because they know every one is trying to reach the same goals.
