Volkswagen is providing a first glimpse of an all-electric Volkswagen costing less than €25,000 (approx. $26,669) with the ID. 2all concept vehicle. The ID. 2all is front-wheel drive, has a range of up to 450 kilometers (approx. 280 miles), and a new Volkswagen design language. The production version will be based on the MEB Entry platform and is one of 10 new electric models that Volkswagen will launch by 2026, the company says. Volkswagen will present the production version of the ID. 2all for the European market in 2025.
Development of the ID. 2all is based on the latest evolutionary stage of the modular electric drive (MEB) platform.
“The ID. 2all will be the first MEB vehicle with front-wheel drive,” said Kai Grünitz, a member of VW’s brand board of management responsible for development. “We are exploiting the great flexibility offered by our modular electric drive (MEB) platform and will set new standards in terms of technology and everyday usability with the MEB Entry platform.”
With the enhanced MEB Entry platform, the ID. 2all is equipped with particularly efficient drive, battery and charging technology, VW says. It has an electric drive motor with an output of 166 kW/226 PS and will have a calculated WLTP range of up to 450 kilometers (approx. 280 miles). The 166 kW/226 PS electric motor of the Volkswagen is integrated into and drives the front axle, allowing the vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0-60 mph) in less than 7 seconds.
At DC fast-charging stations, the battery can be charged from 10 to 80% in 20 minutes, the company says. The battery is charged with up to 11 kW at home or at public AC charging points.
This year alone sees the introduction of the new ID.3, the ID. Buzz with long wheelbase and the ID.7 saloon. This will be followed by a compact electric SUV in 2026 and Volkswagen also says it is working on an electric car at a price of less than 20,000 euros (approx. $21,339). The company says it is aiming to achieve an electric car share of 80% in Europe.
