Volkswagen, one of the world’s leading automakers, has just announced the world premiere of its new all-electric Volkswagen ID. 2all concept car. With its impressive range and innovative technological features, this vehicle is set to revolutionize the electric car industry by providing a first glimpse of an all-electric Volkswagen that will cost less than 25,000 euros.
The ID. 2all is based on the latest evolutionary stage of the modular electric drive (MEB) platform and is the first MEB vehicle with front-wheel drive. Volkswagen is taking full advantage of the flexibility offered by the MEB platform to deliver a vehicle that will set new standards in technology and everyday usability with the MEB Entry platform.
Thomas Schäfer, CEO of Volkswagen Passenger Cars: “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.”

Range and Efficiency
The ID. 2all is equipped with particularly efficient drive, battery, and charging technology, and features a powerful electric drive motor with an output of 166 kW/226 PS. The vehicle’s calculated WLTP range is up to 450 kilometers, which is very impressive given its affordable price point. The enhanced MEB Entry platform delivers a vehicle with exceptional efficiency and driving range.
Innovative Technological Features
Volkswagen has also included a range of innovative technological features in the ID. 2all. These include Travel Assist, IQ.LIGHT, and Electric Vehicle Route Planner. The infotainment system is self-explanatory, with classic volume control and a separate air conditioning block.
The ID. 2all is designed to provide genuine added value to customers, meeting their needs and requirements for a modern, affordable electric vehicle.
Design of the Volkswagen ID. 2all
In terms of design, the ID. 2all gives a preview of Volkswagen’s new design language, which is based on the three pillars of stability, likeability, and excitement. The exterior has a friendly face, with a clear and powerful stance on the wheels, a good portion of dynamics, and timeless elegance. The new C-pillar signature is inspired by the first Golf and is a defining feature of the ID. 2all.
The interior is spacious and has a high-quality appearance, with a clear design that is easy to use. The storage volume is a generous 490–1,330 liters, exceeding the value of higher vehicle classes.
Technology details behind the new concept
Based on the modular electric drive (MEB) platform, the ID. 2all takes advantage of the MEB’s scalability and cost-effectiveness to integrate high-value technologies from larger ID. models.
But what sets the ID. 2all apart is its focus on everyday mobility. The design emphasizes clear, self-explanatory operation, with a touch display for the infotainment system and a newly developed air conditioning control panel. The multifunction steering wheel is similarly intuitive, providing all necessary information on one visual axis.
The interior also boasts maximum space efficiency, with a fold-down front passenger seat backrest and a luggage compartment with a capacity of 440 liters. There’s even a rectangular stowage box under the double luggage compartment floor that can hold several bags of shopping from the supermarket.
Under the hood, the ID. 2all is equipped with particularly efficient drive, battery, and charging technology. The powerful 166 kW / 226 PS electric motor of the Volkswagen drives the front axle, allowing the vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 7 seconds.
The battery permits a calculated WLTP range of up to 450 kilometers and can be charged from 10 to 80 percent in just 20 minutes at DC quick-charging stations.
But perhaps the most exciting technology included in the ID. 2all is the latest version of Travel Assist, a system for partly automated driving. This is the first time this technology has been included in a Volkswagen concept vehicle, and it’s sure to be a hit with drivers looking for both convenience and safety.
Accelerated Electric Offensive
The company is also working on an electric car at a price of fewer than 20,000 euros, providing the widest range of electric vehicles compared with its competitors. Volkswagen is aiming to achieve an electric car share of 80% in Europe, up from its previous estimate of 70%.
In addition to developing electric vehicles, Volkswagen is also investing in renewable energy. The company plans to install 36,000 charging points across Europe by 2025 and is building its own battery factories to ensure a sustainable supply chain.
The Volkswagen ID. 2all concept car represents a significant milestone in the evolution of affordable electric vehicles. With its impressive range, innovative technological features, and exceptional efficiency, this vehicle is set to change the way we think about electric cars.
Volkswagen’s commitment to providing top technology in combination with fantastic design is clear in the ID. 2all, and the company is implementing the transformation at pace to bring electric mobility to the masses. The ID. 2all is proof that affordable electric vehicles can be practical, stylish, and highly desirable, and it is set to be a game-changer in the industry.
