Development of the ID. 2all is based on the latest evolutionary stage of the modular electric drive (MEB) platform. Kai Grünitz, Member of the Brand Board of Management responsible for Development: “The ID. 2all will be the first MEB vehicle with front-wheel drive. We are exploiting the great flexibility offered by our modular electric drive (MEB) platform and will set new standards in terms of technology and everyday usability with the MEB Entry platform.”
With the enhanced MEB Entry platform, the ID. 2all is equipped with particularly efficient drive, battery and charging technology. It has a powerful electric drive motor with an output of 166 kW / 226 PS and will have a calculated WLTP range of up to 450 kilometres.
Volkswagen is also again placing greater focus on design. Andreas Mindt, Head of Design at Volkswagen Passenger Cars: “The ID. 2all gives a preview of the new design language of Volkswagen, which is based on the three pillars of stability, likeability and excitement.”
Exterior design: friendly face, very dynamic and new C-pillar signature
One element of this new design language is the C-pillar design developed for the first Golf. The ID. 2all is the first Volkswagen with a new interpretation of this signature. Other design features of the concept include a body with a clear and powerful stance on the wheels, a friendly face, a good portion of dynamics and timeless elegance.
Interior design: spacious, high-quality appearance, self-explanatory operation
The interior also has a clear design and is characterised by a high-quality appearance, a self-explanatory infotainment system with classic volume control and a separate air conditioning block. The storage volume is a generous 490 to 1,330 litres, a value exceeding that of higher vehicle classes.
Accelerated electric offensive: ten new electric models by 2026
The production version of the ID. 2all is one of ten new electric models that will be launched by Volkswagen by 2026. This year alone sees the introduction of the new ID.3, the ID. Buzz with long wheelbase ((ID. Buzz with long wheel base - The vehicle is a near-production concept car and not available for sale.))) and the ID.7 saloon. This will be followed by a compact electric SUV in 2026 and, in spite of all the challenges, Volkswagen is also working on an electric car at a price of less than 20,000 euros. This will give the car manufacturer the widest range of electric vehicles compared with its competitors, and the company is also aiming to achieve an electric car share of 80 per cent in Europe. Volkswagen Passenger Cars has previously based its calculations on a share of 70 per cent.
- 1.ID. 2all: Concept car
- 2.The new ID.3: Near-production prototype.
- 3.ID. Buzz with long wheelbase: Near-production prototype.
- 4.ID.7: Near-production prototype.
- The ranges specified are projected values based on the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). The actual WLTP range values may differ depending on the equipment. The actual range achieved under real conditions varies depending on the driving style, speed, use of comfort features or auxiliary equipment, outside temperature, number of passengers/load, and topography.
- The specified consumption and emission values were obtained according to the legally required measurement procedures. On 1 January 2022, the WLTP test cycle completely replaced the NEDC test cycle and therefore no NEDC values are available for new type approved vehicles after that date.
- The specifications do not refer to an individual vehicle and are not part of the offer, but serve only to permit comparison between the individual vehicle types. Additional equipment and accessories (additional components, tyre formats, etc.) can alter relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics, affecting the vehicle’s fuel consumption, power consumption, CO2 emissions and driving performance values in addition to weather and traffic conditions and individual driving behaviour.
- Due to more realistic testing conditions, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions measured according to WLTP will in many cases be higher than the values measured according to NEDC. As a result, the taxation of vehicles may change accordingly as of 1 September 2018. For further information on the differences between WLTP and NEDC, please visit http://www.volkswagen.de/wltp.
- Further information on official fuel consumption data and official specific CO2 emissions for new passenger cars can be found in the “Guide to fuel economy, CO2 emissions and power consumption for new passenger car models”, which is available free of charge from all sales dealerships and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, D-73760 Ostfildern, Germany, and at www.dat.de/co2.
