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-derivedgoes 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.
