Volkswagen Unveils ID2 EV Concept, Will Cost Under $26,500 USD
Volkswagen on Wednesday unveiled the ID. 2all electric vehicle concept, which it says will cost under €25,000 ($26,466 USD).
The concept shows a two-door hatchback that looks like a Volkswagen Golf, while the company noting it will have range up to 450 km (279 miles) and will be “as spacious as a Golf” but “as inexpensive as a Polo” and be the first MEB EV with front wheel drive.
The company plans to launch the ID. 2all in Europe in 2025.
The EV will have Travel Assist, IQ.LIGHT or Electric Vehicle Route Planner and the production builds will be leveraging the company’s new modular electric drive (MEB) Entry platform.
Volkswagen says it is also working on an electric car at a price of less than 20,000 euros ($21,175 USD).
Photos of the interior show a large center touchscreen, along with a smaller display in front of the steering wheel. There are not many buttons like regular gas cars and the design looks simple and clean resembling a Tesla.
“We are transforming the company rapidly and fundamentally – with the clear objective of making Volkswagen a genuine Love Brand. The ID. 2all shows where we want to take the brand. We want to be close to the customer and offer top technology in combination with fantastic design. We are implementing the transformation at pace to bring electric mobility to the masses,” said Thomas Schäfer, CEO of Volkswagen Passenger Cars in a statement.
The German automaker says it will have 10 new EV models in its catalogue by 2026.
