During a German investor presentation, Volkswagen revealed the ID.2all, a prototype car that represents its accessible electric car for the masses. It’s a compact, battery-operated hatchback. Once the new vehicle enters production in the year 2026, it will have an initial price of $26,833 (€25,000) or less.
The ID.2all display car is a sneak peek of a real car that may appear later on and could be dubbed the ID.2. Volkswagen presently offers the ID.6, ID.5, ID.4 and ID.3. The new prototype provides a preview of the general style and features we may anticipate from the actual vehicle when it shows up in 2026. Volkswagen claims that the electric vehicle has an estimated 280-mile range.
Elon Musk has long discussed Tesla’s intentions to introduce a $25,000 mass-market electric vehicle. He was just outdone by VW. At Tesla’s investor presentation day, Elon Musk was supposed to demonstrate his own reasonably priced electric vehicle, but he didn’t. Following the incident, investors complained about the lack of the long-anticipated electric vehicle, which caused Tesla’s stock prices to fall. In a minimum of 14 days, Volkswagen Wagen reacted with its own interpretation of what an electric vehicle for the masses may entail.
At the event, Volkswagen unveiled a five-year plan that calls for an expenditure of €180 billion in sectors such as the production of batteries and raw materials in an attempt to lower electric vehicle production costs and surpass Tesla and other automakers by gaining market dominance.
However, the ID. 2all, a small electric car with competitive pricing and plenty of promise, served as the event’s focal point. Although the vehicle is just a prototype, the automaker stated it plans to commence producing the car by 2025 and make it available for purchase by 2026.
The ID.2all will be the first front-wheel-drive, plug-in vehicle produced by Volkswagen. Faster charging will be possible thanks to the vehicle’s powertrain. According to Volkswagen, a 10% to 80% charge will take around 20 minutes. Depending on how the seats are arranged, the ID.2all’s storage volume ranges from 460 to 1,330 liters.
There is only one drawback for consumers in the United States: the recently launched ID.2all concept car will never be sold in the country because it would be a challenging sell for U.S. shoppers who progressively have preferred SUVs more than the compact hatchbacks that continue to be common throughout Europe
Besides the ID.2all, Volkswagen stated that it is also developing a sub-20,000-euro electric vehicle. Meanwhile, U.S. buyers can expect the Scout versions, the ID. Buzz with a larger wheelbase, and the ID.7 sedan, which is modeled off the Arteon.
Other EV makers such as Rivian Automotive Inc. (NASDAQ: RIVN) have been put on notice that the race to bring to market an affordable electric vehicle for price-sensitive motorists is now underway, and the onus is on them to come up with a response.
