Volkswagen has unveiled its latest concept car, the ID.2all, which previews a new electric hatchback that will cost less than 25,000 euros ($26,790) when it goes on sale in 2025. The ID.2all is the smallest and most affordable member of VW’s growing ID family of electric vehicles and aims to bring zero-emission mobility to a wider audience.
The Volkswagen ID.2all is based on an updated version of VW’s modular electric platform (MEB), which also underpins the larger ID.3 and ID.4 models. Unlike those cars with rear-wheel drive, the ID.2all has front-wheel drive, with a single electric motor that delivers 223 horsepower. VW says the concept car can travel up to 450 kilometers (280 miles) on a single charge, thanks to a large battery pack that can be recharged at up to 170 kW on a DC fast charger.
The design of the Volkswagen ID.2all is inspired by the iconic Volkswagen Golf Mk1, with simple and clean lines, short overhangs, and large wheels that give it a sporty and dynamic look. The concept car features LED matrix headlights and taillights that create distinctive light signatures and an illuminated grille that changes color depending on the driving mode.
The interior of the Volkswagen ID.2all is spacious and modern, with high-quality materials and digital displays. The dashboard consists of two screens: one for the instrument cluster behind the steering wheel and one for the infotainment system on top of the center console. Both screens can be controlled by touch or voice commands via Amazon Alexa integration. The cabin also offers wireless smartphone charging, a panoramic sunroof, and ambient lighting.
The Volkswagen ID.2all has several driver-assistance features, such as adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and automatic emergency braking. Optional features include a head-up display, a surround-view camera system, and night vision assist.
The Volkswagen ID.2all is expected to launch in Europe by 2025 as the production version of the ID. 2. VW says it will offer different versions of the car with varying power outputs and battery sizes to suit different needs and budgets. The base model will start at under 25k euros ($26k), making it one of the most affordable electric cars on the market.
The ID. 2 will be part of VW’s ambitious plan to become a leader in electric mobility and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. The company plans to sell up to three million electric cars annually by 2025 and derive 80% of its European passenger brand sales from all-electric vehicles by 2030.
