This analogy was fabricated by Jean Francois Hubert/SB-Medien for CarScoops. It is a abstract cartoon that is not accompanying to nor accustomed by Volkswagen.
With cars acceptable added big-ticket due to the austere discharge regulations and batteries acceptable cheaper, it is assured that absolutely electric models will become aloof as, or alike more, affordable than the agnate ICE-powered proposals in the abreast future. VW is heavily action on this book for the aboriginal affiliate of the ID family, the ID.2, which is advancing in 2025 with a amount tag of €20,000 ($23,294).
The ID.2 was previewed by the ID.LIFE abstraction car in Munich aftermost September. The assembly adaptation ability be years away, as it is appointed for a backward 2025 premiere, but the absolutely alive ancestor gives us a acceptable abstraction of the architectonics language. The archetypal will be a B-Segment crossover, while a hardly abate and lower-riding affinity address the ID.1 nameplate will chase after as a almsman to the VW e-up! burghal car.
Styling that deviates from added associates of the ID family
Instead of attractive like a ashen ID.3, the ID.2 will accept its own character with a boxlike appearance and a rather minimalist administration approach. Our absolute apprehension shows how the assembly archetypal could attending by toning bottomward some appearance of the ID.LIFE. On the profile, the assembly archetypal will apparently affection accepted aperture handles and mirrors, while absence the adorned disposable roof of the concept.

At the front, the covered grille is corrective in atramentous with the added accepted headlights sending able Beetle accordance with the angled LED graphics. The bonanza gets a avant-garde assimilation agnate to the multi-hole arrangement alien by the ID.3 and an aluminum-style drift bowl for a added adventuresome attending accumulated with the added arena clearance.
Judging from the ID.LIFE, the ID.2 will accept a agnate brand to the ICE-powered VW T-Cross B-SUV. The abstraction car abstinent 4,091 mm (161 inches) in length, 1,845 mm (78.6 inches) in width, and 1,599 mm (62.9 inches) in height, with a wheelbase of 2,650 mm (104.3 inches).
Concept cars tend to accept affected architectonics appearance central that are not advised for production. In this ambience we assumption that the projector creating a 34-inch awning on the windshield, the bond council caster and the hidden touchscreens on the dashboard won’t accomplish it to the ID.2. What will acceptable accomplish it admitting is the all-encompassing use of acceptable and recycled materials, the foldable seats additional the abridgement of infotainment awning which is replaced by the user’s smartphone – at atomic in the lower trim levels.
Shared EV architectonics for amount efficiency
Underpinning the ID.2 will be a beneath adaptation of the MEB belvedere that is already acclimated on the ID.3 and ID.4 alongside added absolutely electric models of the VW Group. It will be alleged MEB Eco and will be aggregate with a B-SUV from Seat, a hot-hatch by Cupra, a budget-friendly EV by Skoda and the abate VW ID.1.
Instead of allocation out the all-embracing dimensions, VW engineers accept tweaked several characteristics of the MEB belvedere in adjustment to accomplish it a bigger fit for the abate cartage of the VW Group and ability the aggressive abject amount target.
Firstly, the electric motor is army at the advanced instead of the rear, which makes the ID.2 a FWD-only vehicle, acceptance for added baggage amplitude at the aback and a frunk for charging ports and cables. In the ID.LIFE the e-motor produced 230 hp (172 kW / 234 PS) and 290 Nm (214 lb-ft) of torque, but in assembly we apprehend a beneath able assemblage back this is not a performance-oriented offering, although it will be absorbing to see whether VW will barrage a achievement GTX variant.
For amount efficiency, the array packs in the MEB Eco belvedere will acclimated lithium-ion phosphate beef instead of lithium-ion nickel manganese azure ones. The ID.LIFE came with a 57 kWh array accommodation alms a 248-mile (400 km) range, although the ID.2 will best acceptable appear with a ambit of altered array packs.
The €20,000 ($23,294) advertised starting amount for the ID.2 would accomplish it appreciably cheaper compared to B-Segment EVs currently accessible such as the Peugeot e-208, Opel Corsa-e, Honda e and MINI Cooper SE, and could be on par with the accessible Renault 5.
The assembly of the VW ID.2 will apparently booty abode in Spain, alongside its sister models. Seat has accepted its anniversary assembly ambition of 500,000 burghal EVs in its Martorell branch by 2025, and the ID.2 is acceptable to be allotment of that family.
