There’s already a decent number of affordable EVs on today’s market, but Volkswagen is working on something that may beat them all on the value scale. As part of its world premiere for the ID. 2all, a new all-electric concept car that costs less than 25,000 euros (~26,522 USD) and features a range of up to 450 km (279 miles), Volkswagen confirmed that it is developing an electric car that can be purchased for less than 20,000 euros (~21,217 USD). The production version of the ID. 2all is one of ten new electric models that Volkswagen plans to launch by 2026, while this year alone will see the introduction of the new ID.3, the ID. Buzz with long wheelbase, and the ID.7. Tesla’s cheapest EV, the Model 3, is listed for $42,990 on its official website.
“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. We want to be close to the customer and offer top technology in combination with fantastic design. We are implementing the transformation at pace to bring electric mobility to the masses.”
From a Volkswagen press release:
The Volkswagen brand is continuing the success story of its compact cars in the age of electric mobility and is providing a first glimpse of an all-electric Volkswagen costing less than 25,000 euros with the ID. 2all concept car. Initial facts: front-wheel drive, range of up to 450 km, innovative technological features such as Travel Assist, IQ.LIGHT or Electric Vehicle Route Planner and a new Volkswagen design language. 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.
The production version of the ID. 2all is one of ten new electric models that will be launched by Volkswagen by 2026. This year alone will see the introduction of the new ID.3, the ID. Buzz with long wheelbase and the ID.7. This will be followed by a compact electric SUV in 2026 and, in spite of all the challenges, Volkswagen is also working on an electric car at a price of less than 20,000 euros. This will give the car manufacturer the widest range of electric vehicles compared with its competitors, and the company is aiming to achieve an electric car share of 80% in Europe. Volkswagen Passenger Cars has previously based its calculations on a share of 70%.
