Volkswagen unveils game changing ID. 2all concept

Volkswagen has taken a significant step in breaking down the price barrier to EV adoption as it unveiled the ID. 2all concept.

The latest concept vehicle in the ID. range will offer front-wheel drive, a 280-mile range and, most importantly, a starting price of around £22,000. A powerful 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 62mph in less than seven seconds. At DC quick-charging stations, the battery can also be charged from 10 to 80 per cent in 20 minutes.

The production version will be based on the MEB Entry platform and is one of ten new electric models that Volkswagen will launch by 2026.

With a design language similar to the brand’s Golf, the ID. 2all is likely to be Volkswagen’s entry-level EV and will be one of ten new electric models that will be launched by Volkswagen by 2026.

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.

Thomas Schäfer, CEO of Volkswagen Passenger Cars, said: “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: close to the customer, top technologies and a fantastic design. We are implementing the transformation at pace to bring electric mobility to the masses.”

Kai Grünitz, Member of the Brand Board of Management responsible for Development, said: “The production version of the ID. 2all will be a full-value electric vehicle for every day of the year. A typical Volkswagen with sufficient space and a long range so that the destination can be reached without problems, even on long journeys. Thanks to the extremely variable MEB platform, our customers will also benefit from state-of-the-art technologies in the price class around 25,000 euros. Volkswagen is once more democratising progress here. And that is also exactly our goal.”
