ID.UX symbolizes “Make Every Moment Gold”, according to the brand. By 2027, Volkswagen plans to launch five smart pure electric vehicles under the series. Additionally, the manufacturing is done by Volkswagen Anhui, established in 2017 and is Volkswagen’s third vehicle joint venture in China.

Formerly known as JAC Volkswagen, both Volkswagen and JAC each held 50% of the shares at the beginning. In May 2020, Volkswagen China acquired 50% of the shares of JAC Holdings, the largest shareholder of JAC Motors, and increased its stake in JAC Volkswagen to 75%. At the end of 2023, Volkswagen Anhui officially put into production the Cupra Tavascan for export to the European market.

In the front, the Volkswagen ID.UNYX has a through-type light strip connecting the LED headlights on both sides. Air intake elements are also present on both sides of the front bumper. Additionally, the A-pillar has been blackened to create a visual floating roof effect.

Other design elements include hidden door handles, petal-shaped rims, blackened exterior mirrors, and a layered rear design.
