Curtains off to all new ID.2all: Volkswagen revealed its most affordable EV

Volkswagen on Friday has finally revealed its most affordable electric vehicle in the form of the brand-new ID.2all concept, which resembles a Polo or Golf with an ID badge and an all-electric drivetrain. The German manufacturer gave consumers a glimpse of the mass-produced electric vehicle by using this concept model. The ID. Life, which debuted in September 2021, is completely different from Volkswagen's ID.2all EV concept. We can see a preview of the upcoming electric vehicle in the recently unveiled EV concept, which is expected to be sold in Europe in 2025 and cost $26,400. (Rs 21.80 lakh). The images provided by the automaker show it as a pre-production study, not a futuristic concept vehicle. It is significant to note that when the Volkswagen ID.2all concept-derived electric car goes on sale, it will be the brand's first FWD MEB model.An uncluttered dashboard, a centre panel in the form of a bridge, dual rectangular displays, including a 12.9-inch touchscreen in the centre with a new menu structure, and a 10.9-inch digital cockpit are all present and correct inside the EV concept. There is also a large panoramic sunroof. A head-up display, two big inductive charging interfaces for cellphones, a separate air conditioning control panel with illuminated buttons, and a head-up display are also included on the centre console. On the centre console, there is a rotary dial that the driver can use to control a variety of vehicle features.According to Volkswagen, a new multifunction steering wheel with dual thumbwheels and buttons is included, as well as power seats with massage functions. The entire cabin is equipped with numerous USB-C outlets.According to Andreas Mindt, the design chief for the OEM, the EV's styling offers a sneak preview of Volkswagen's new design philosophy, which is founded on the three pillars of stability, likeability, and excitement. Dimensions of the Volkswagen ID.2all include a wheelbase of 2,600mm, a length of 4,050mm, a width of 1.812mm, and a height of 1,530mm.The EV looks compact and contemporary when compared to the most recent Volkswagen models. The sharp and fluid-appearing LED headlamps blend perfectly with the front panel's apparent chrome bezel or black section. LED daytime running lights are fashionable and mounted above the headlights. The radiator grille is replaced by a closed panel upfront because it is an electric car. The 20-inch alloy wheels are not particularly attractive, and there is a thick LED light strip connecting the taillights through the centre of the tailgate at the rear. A roof spoiler and a rear windscreen wiper are also visible in the photos.Volkswagen claims that the ID.2all engine will work similarly to the base Golf GTI and have a 450-kilometre range on a single charge. The EV's front-mounted engine has a maximum output of 222 horsepower, and it can reach speeds of 100 km/h in less than seven seconds. Using a DC fast converter, the battery can be charged from 10% to 80% in 20 minutes.

Amid the energy shifting pattern, Honda announces its debut in the Indian EV industry.
The future of Electric vehicles (EV) seems promising, but concerns like underdeveloped charging infrastructure and high ownership costs have persisted. Further, Ev fires have also raised doubts in the next-generation automobile industry.The absence of well-known brands like Honda, Hero MotoCorp, Yamaha, Suzuki, and Royal Enfield is another limiting element. If leading brands release their individual products, EV sales may increase significantly. Currently, only two well-known manufacturers—TVS and Bajaj—offer electronic two-wheelers. The debut of the Honda Electric Scooter in April 2023: Atomic Electric Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) has declared that it will begin operations in this country in April 2023 with an electric scooter. It's unclear at this time whether this will be the eagerly anticipated Activa electrified or something else. The 29th of March will bring forth more information. It is important to note that Honda already offers a variety of electronic two-wheelers for sale in other countries.  Additionally, the business will introduce flex-fuel two-wheelers in foreign markets. Some of these flex-fuel and electric cars may also be made available in India. One of the appealing options for the Indian market is an electric version of the best-selling Activa.Honda has ambitious plans for the EV market, but Ogata stated that the company's main emphasis will remain on petrol-powered two-wheelers. It makes sense, given the size of the ICE-based two-wheeler industry, which will continue to grow for a while. A complete switch to EVs will require modifications to the entire production ecosystem and supply chain, which will take time to implement. Another limiting element is consumer psychology, as people are typically reluctant to accept new things. With the development of more sophisticated, cost-effective, and long-lasting batteries, things are anticipated to get better for EVs in the future. There are several novel battery technologies being examined right now. Issues like range anxiety, expensive batteries, EV fires, etc., will be resolved in the event of a significant advance.

WATI welcomes Pulse Energy to design WhatsApp Bot for EV charger
One of the biggest players of EV chargers in India, Pulse Energy, has shaken hands with WATI (WhatsApp Team Inbox), an end-to-end WhatsApp API solution for server message block protocol (SMBs). WATI used its low-code flow builder to create a customised automatic flow for Pulse Energy and already-existing integration with WhatsApp payments.The IVCA-EY-Induslaw report states that EV sales currently make up 1.1 percent of all car sales but are projected to reach 39 percent by CY27. To satisfy the rising demand, there are currently only 1,742 charging stations; however, by 2027, that number is predicted to rise to 100,000 units. Currently, the majority of users of the apps that drive the EV charging procedure are non-English speakers. In order to align itself with the nation’s mission on EVs and proliferate development, Pulse Energy launched a plan to decipher how to reduce the cognitive load needed to start and stop any charging station across the country.Pulse Energy used WATI to launch a straightforward WhatsApp chat-based discussion to initiate, terminate, and pay for charging. By integrating WhatsApp Payments into WATI's platform, businesses can quickly request payments from consumers via WhatsApp and receive instant alerts when transactions take place. WATI is an end-to-end WhatsApp API for SMBs because it enables chatbots to instantly send payment requests to customers.Reflecting on the collaboration, Co-Founder and CEO of WATI, Bianca Ho, stated, "With the intention of assisting businesses in interacting with their consumers on messaging platforms, we founded WATI. WATI customers can interact with their users in real-time, in a personalised, and simple-to-connect way, thanks to WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption. Using simple-to-copy designs, retailers can now create chatbots without knowing any programming. With the ability to quickly construct new flows, WATI's flow builder enabled Pulse Energy to raise customer satisfaction and conversion rates."The first WhatsApp-based EV charging network in India has been created by us. EV drivers can now start the charger by easily scanning the QR code and making a payment with WhatsApp. We were able to enable WhatsApp payments for our users and enable them to transact quickly without having to load money into 35+ charging station apps thanks to WATI's flow builder "said Devang Mistry, a Pulse Energy co-founder.Founded in 2020, Bianca Ho and Ken Yeung started WATI with the vision to assist SMBs with a self-service, low-code solution based on the WhatsApp Business API. The robust chatbots and APIs, commerce interfaces, and customer intelligence features of the platform enable SMBs to do much more with this end-to-end WhatsApp API solution, including Sell, Market and Manage Customer Support. WATI is a global platform with over 6000 users in 78 countries, including SMBs that offer household cleaning services to schools, tutoring facilities, healthcare facilities, and e-commerce sites like Shopify stores.
