Volkswagen Unveils New Electric Car for the Masses Costing Less Than €25,000

The Volkswagen brand is continuing its compact car story in the age of electric mobility and has provided a first glimpse of an all-electric Volkswagen costing less than 25,000 euros with the ID. 2all concept car.

The German automaker said it will present the production version of the ID. 2all for the European market in 2025. The goal is a starting price of less than 25,000 euros.

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 will see the introduction of the new ID.3, the ID. Buzz with long wheelbase and the ID.7.

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 aiming to achieve an electric car share of 80% in Europe. Volkswagen Passenger Cars has previously based its calculations on a share of 70%.

Thomas Schäfer, CEO of Volkswagen Passenger Cars said: “We are transforming the company rapidly and fundamentally – with the clear objective of making Volkswagen a genuine Love Brand. The ID. 2all shows where we want to take the brand. We want to be close to the customer and offer top technology in combination with fantastic design. We are implementing the transformation at pace to bring electric mobility to the masses.”
