Volkswagen wants to launch an electric car for 20,000 euros, but until then it will launch one that will start from 25,000 euros. The Germans presented the ID 2all concept which is the size of a Polo, will be launched in 2025 and will have two battery versions.

The Volkswagen ID 2all will also borrow design elements from the Polo and Golf, it will be 4.05 meters long, but the trunk will have 50% more capacity than the Polo.
The new architecture allows two types of batteries: 38 kWh and 56 kWh. The 38 kWh version will be priced at 25,000 euros, and the 450 km range will be found in the 56 kWh version. The maximum speed will be 160 km/h.
In the version with a larger battery, the promised autonomy is 450 km, and the acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h will be done in 7 seconds. The release of the serial version will be in more than two years.
At a fast station, charging from 10% to 80% will take 20 minutes.
The Volkswagen ID 2 will be produced in Spain alongside another small electric Volkswagen, a Cupra and a Skoda car, all built on a shorter version of the electric MEB platform found in the successful ID3 and ID4 models.
A 10.9-inch screen will be found on board.
Volkswagen will launch several full-electric models in the coming years: the ID3 facelift, an elongated version of the ID Buzz, the ID7 sedan and a compact SUV.
