The highlights at a glance
- ACCELERATE: Entry model with electric drive available in 2025
A whole two years earlier than originally planned, Volkswagen is launching the first model of the ID. Family for the small car segment. It will cost between 20,000 and 25,000 euros. The ID. LIFE gives an impression of how a vehicle of this type would look. The concept car combines sustainability with digitalisation and is therefore targeted at the needs of young target groups in terms of urban mobility.
- Crossover reinterpreted
With muscular proportions, a clear-cut shape and reduced complexity, the ID. LIFE is a groundbreaking, sustainability-oriented reinterpretation of a crossover model with four doors, a large boot lid, a raised seating position and variable interior space. A removable air-chamber textile roof allows open-air driving pleasure.
- Recycled materials inside and out
The extensive use of natural raw materials and recycled materials also contributes to the car’s sustainable character: from tyres with a particularly high proportion of renewable and recycled raw materials, to real wood veneer and ArtVelours Eco made of recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET).
- Interior geared towards digitalisation
Cameras instead of mirrors, smartphone integration, touch surfaces on the steering wheel: the interior of the ID. LIFE is defined by intuitive digital operating functions. Its versatile adjustable seating and a retractable projection screen means it can be turned into a gaming and cinema lounge in no time at all.
- First ever combination of electric motor and front-wheel
drive in the MEB
A 172 kW (234 PS) electric motor drives the front wheels and accelerates the ID. LIFE from zero to 100 km/h in 6.9 seconds. The WLTP range is around 400 kilometres.
This vehicle is a concept car. The vehicle is not yet available for sale.
