Volkswagen’s Affordable Electric Car: The ID. 2all Concept Unveiled!
Volkswagen is expanding its line of electric cars with the 2025 Volkswagen ID.2all concept car, which is priced under 25,000 euros ($26,600). The compact car boasts front-wheel drive, a range of 280 miles, and advanced features like Travel Assist, IQ.LIGHT, and Electric Vehicle Route Planner. Additionally, the car features Volkswagen's new design language. The production version of the car will utilize the MEB Entry platform and is one of ten new electric models that Volkswagen intends to release by 2026.
According to Thomas Schäfer, the CEO of Volkswagen Passenger Cars, the company is undergoing a rapid and comprehensive transformation with the aim of making Volkswagen a true love brand. The ID. 2all showcases the direction in which the brand is heading. Volkswagen plans to provide cutting-edge technology and superb design while remaining close to the customer. The company is working to bring electric mobility to the masses by implementing the transformation quickly. Volkswagen will launch the production version of the ID.2all for the European market in 2025, with a target starting price of less than 25,000 euros ($26,600). Imelda Labbé, a member of the Brand Board of Management responsible for Sales, Marketing, and Aftersales, states that Volkswagen is bringing its familiar virtues to the new mobility landscape, ensuring top quality and craftsmanship, exceptional software and digital services, and genuine value-added services. The focus is always on meeting the demands and preferences of customers.
The ID. 2all has been developed using the latest modular electric drive (MEB) platform. The front-wheel drive of this vehicle is a first for the MEB platform, according to Kai Grünitz, a member of the Brand Board of Management responsible for Technical Development. The MEB Entry platform provides the ID. 2all with efficient drive, battery, and charging technology. The vehicle is equipped with a powerful electric drive motor with an output of 166 kW/226 PS, and it is estimated to have a WLTP range of up to 280 miles. Volkswagen has also emphasized the design of the 2025 Volkswagen ID.2all, with Andreas Mindt, Head of Design at Volkswagen Passenger Cars, stating that it previews the company's new design language based on stability, likability, and excitement.
The C-pillar design, which was originally created for the first Golf, is a significant aspect of the new design language. The ID.2all, being the first Volkswagen car to feature this signature, presents a fresh interpretation of it. In addition, the concept car boasts of a body that exudes a strong and confident presence on the wheels, a welcoming front, and a blend of dynamism and classic sophistication.
The inside of the car has a well-defined layout and features a premium look, an intuitive infotainment system with traditional volume control, and a distinct air conditioning unit. With a storage capacity of 490-1330 liters, it surpasses the storage capacity of larger car classes.
Volkswagen plans to launch ten new electric models, including the ID.2all, by 2026. Among these models are the recently introduced Volkswagen ID.3, the long-wheelbase ID. Buzz, and the Volkswagen ID.7. Despite the challenges, Volkswagen is also working on an affordable electric car priced below $26,600. With the launch of these new models, Volkswagen will have a wider range of electric vehicles compared to its competitors and aims to achieve an 80% share of electric cars in Europe, up from its previous estimate of 70%. A compact electric SUV is also expected to be launched in 2026.
