Sitting below the recently refreshed Volkswagen ID.3 and ID.4 in the brand's electric line-up, the Volkswagen ID.2 will be based on a new entry-level MEB architecture designed to boost efficiency and keep costs low.
Volkswagen describe the new ID.2 as being 'as spacious as a Golf and as inexpensive as a Polo' and it's easy to see that this concept car clearly draws heavily from these classic VW models.
The ID.2all concept is 4050mm long, making it slightly shorter than the current Polo, but its 2600mm wheelbase is longer, allowing for far more interior space and flexibility. It also features a 490-litre boot, with 1330 litres of capacity when the rear seats are fully folded down.
Thomas Schäfer, CEO of Volkswagen Passenger Cars said: “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.”
With it's new MEB platform, the ID.2all is equipped with particularly efficient drive, battery and charging technology. The electric drive motor fitted in the concept has an output of 166 kW/226 PS and a WLTP range of up to 280 miles. Volkswagen claim the vehicle has a top speed of 99 mph and a 0-62mph time of less than 7.0 seconds.
The Volkswagen ID.2all is also the first electric ID car from the brand to get front-wheel-drive.
The vehicle is just a concept car for now, but the brand expects a final production version will arrive in the UK in 2025.
As for price, Volkswagen say that this new EV should start from under £22,000, which would make it one of the cheapest EVs around. Volkswagen revealed that they are 'also working on an electric car at a price of less than €20,000 (£17,600)'.
