Volkswagen unveils the ID. 2all hatchback

As spacious as a Golf, as inexpensive as a Polo, and powered entirely by electricity - a drum roll please for the new Volkswagen ID. 2all.

The cost of living crisis hasn’t gone unnoticed by VW.

And as families count the pennies, the German firm has been beavering away behind the scenes trying to come up with a cheap, all-electric hatchback with a starting price of less than 25,000 Euros - or £22,000.

And this is it - the ID. 2all - revealed here as a concept but which will arrive on UK roads in 2025.

As things stand, the ID. 2all will be cheaper than the MG4 EV and also less pricey than VW’s own budget T-Cross SUV.

Perhaps the best thing about the ID. 2all, besides the price tag, is the fact that VW says its designers have paid homage to the Beetle, Golf and Polo when creating it, ‘transferring the DNA of our icons into the future’, as the manufacturer puts it.

The lines at the rear, for example, have been created to mirror the C-pillar design of the legendary Golf Mk.1.

Lease customers can also expect a range of up to 280 miles between charges as well as rapid charging abilities to take the battery from 10 to 80% in around 20 minutes.

While the ID. 2all might be affordable, it won’t be slow. There’s power of 226 PS and a sub-7 second 0-62 mph acceleration time. To put that into context, it means the ID. 2all is more powerful than the petrol-powered VW Polo GTI.

Kai Grünitz, Member of the VW Brand Board of Management responsible for Development, says:

 “The production version of the ID. 2all will be a full-value electric vehicle for every day of the year. A typical Volkswagen with sufficient space and a long range so that the destination can be reached without problems, even on long journeys. Thanks to the extremely variable MEB (modular electric drive) platform, our customers will also benefit from state-of-the-art technologies in the price class around 25,000 euros. Volkswagen is once more democratising progress here. And that is also exactly our goal.”

VW is promising a ‘high-quality’ interior for the ID. 2all, crammed with materials that ‘would not normally be expected in a vehicle in this price class’.

Some trim levels will get VW’s ‘Travel Assist’ system, which includes adaptive cruise control and lane assist, as well as ‘Park Assist Plus’, which can spy a vacant spot before parking the car in it for you.

Massage seats, a 12.9 inch touchscreen, and a large panoramic sunroof should also put a smile on the face of lease customers.

There’s even wireless charging for two phones in the front.

And the good news doesn’t end there - because VW is also promising another new electric car, likely called the ID.1, with a starting price of ‘less than 20,000 euros’. That’s £17,500, which is cheaper than the entry-level VW Polo.

In the meantime, the most affordable electric VW to lease is the e-Up! (below), which you can drive with Select Car Leasing for around £262 per month*.

The e-Up! gives you a range of up to 160 miles between charges - similar to the MINI Electric - and it comes with five doors as standard, making it perfect for busy families.

 *Prices include VAT. Credit is Subject to Status, Ts and Cs and Arrangement Fees apply. Excess mileage may apply. Stock levels and prices correct as of 16/03/23.
