Volkswagen has signalled its intent to be a dominant force in the sub-£22,000 electric car market with the unveiling of a new ID. 2all concept car. Destined for production in 2025, the new model is one of 10 all-new electric cars scheduled to launch by 2026, and is likely to be a big seller if the brand is able to bring it to market at its projected price.
Unveiled at a special launch event in Hannover, Germany, the ID. 2all is expected to be called simply ID.2 when it arrives in 2025. It will be based on a new, smaller version of the Volkswagen Group’s MEB platform – a universal set of underpinnings onto which any number of body shapes can be built. The smaller MEB platform (officially called MEB Entry) will be used across the Volkswagen Group, with Škoda and Cupra set to introduce their own versions of the ID.2 shortly after the VW-badged model arrives.
