An affordable electric car from an established manufacturer – Volkswagen wants to make this dream come true. The Volks-E-Auto ID.Life should be available by 2025 and cost between 20,000 and 25,000 euros. The platform is in partnership with Seat.

Ralf Brandstätter, head of the Volkswagen brand, has confirmed his intention to bring a genuine Volksstromer to the market by 2025. While he still holds back on certain details, the price range is already fixed. For the compact electric car in Germany between 20,000 and 25,000 euros offensive. Electromobility must be made “affordable for even more people” (source: LinkedIn).

The Volksstromer would be based on the existing ID.Life concept, which Volkswagen first presented at the IAA 2021 as a “close to production study”. However, the “ID.2” is marketed as the model name, following VW’s previous nomenclature.

Volkswagen AG’s Spanish brand is already dealing with small electric cars with VW’s MEB platform, and the group has also announced massive investments in Spain. A current sketch already shows that VW’s Volksstromer will differ somewhat from the ID.Life concept on the outside:

Volkswagen will be “like a second living room”

VW talks about a “distinctive design” and an inner tube textile made from recycled PET bottles to reduce the weight of the electric car. We can expect a 57 kWh battery, which should have a range of up to 400 km according to the WLTP standard.

Is buying an electric car worth it?

The manufacturer talks a lot about the choice of materials Sustainability and renewable raw materials. The interior is meant to look “like a second living room” with FSC-certified wood and recycled materials. For the tyres, VW wants to use a mixture of natural rubber and rice husks. But before the smallest electric car in VW’s portfolio is ready, the electric Bulli ID.Buzz is next.
