Volkswagen on Wednesday unveiled the ID. 2all, a concept Electric vehicle that the company says will cost under $25,000 euros ($25,466 USD). The two-door hatchback looks like a Volkswagen Golf and will have a range up to 450 km (279 miles). It will be as spacious as a Golf but as inexpensive as a Polo, and be the first MEB EV with front wheel drive. Volkswagen 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 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 and the design looks simple and clean resembling a Tesla.
The German automaker says it has the mission to bring Electric mobility to the masses and make Volkswagen a genuine Love Brand. To do this, the company is transforming rapidly and fundamentally. Thomas Schäfer, CEO of Volkswagen Passenger Cars said in a statement, “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.”
Volkswagen plans to have 10 new EV models in its catalogue by 2026. The ID. 2all concept vehicle is just the start of many more EVs to come. With a price tag of under $25,000 euros, the ID. 2all promises to bring Electric mobility to the masses. It is an exciting time for Electric vehicles and the future looks bright.
