A generous interior developed according to a fundamental principle that has been continuously perfected over seven decades: maximum use of minimal space. Accompanied by short body overhangs, balanced weight distribution, a low centre of gravity and rear-wheel drive – these are the elements that have set the original apart in this class since 1950. Available in the future as fully electric versions based on the modular electric drive matrix (MEB), in the form of the ID. Buzzand ID. Buzz Cargo

    The new ID. GTI Concept - World premiere

    GTI – for decades now, this name has stood for compact sports cars from Volkswagen. Golf GTI, Scirocco GTi, Polo GTI, up! GTI. Icons. Volkswagen is now catapulting GTI DNA into the age of electric mobility with the new ID. GTI Concept. The world premiere of this electrifying concept vehicle will take place during this year’s IAA Mobility in Munich (5 to 9 September 2023) – exactly 48 years after the worldwide debut of the first Golf GTI at the IAA in Frankfurt. The ID. GTI Concept is based on the ID. 2all presented in March – a future electric compact car that costs around 25,000 euros and which has generated worldwide attention. Its front-wheel drive, clear design and powerful proportions make it the perfect starting point for a new GTI. Volkswagen Head of Design Andreas Mindt already also had the sporty derivative in mind when he produced the first sketches for the ID. 2all. And just like the ID. 2all, the ID. GTI Concept is more than just a show car – it is the first glimpse of the exciting GTI future because its series development has already been decided.

Does this sound familiar? Friends, colleagues and family members discussing whether electric cars are truly the future. Would other drive systems – particularly hydrogen – not be a better solution? Most scientists believe this question has already been answered. “It has been shown in many studies that electric drive systems are by far the most efficient methods for powering vehicles,” says Prof. Maximilian Fichtner, battery expert at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). We have summarised what you need to know in five points – the great strengths of e-mobility.
