2025 Volkswagen ID.2all: front static

The new Volkswagen ID.2 will be an affordable electric car when it goes on sale in 2025. 

Set to rival the Vauxhall Corsa-e and Peugeot e-208, Volkswagen says its new electric car will have a range of up to 280 miles and a price tag of around £22,000.

Sitting below the existing Volkswagen ID.3 and ID.4 in the brand's electric line-up, the new Volkswagen ID.2 - previewed here in concept form as the Volkswagen ID.2all - is based on a new entry-level architecture designed to boost efficiency and keep costs low.

Prices are expected to start from around £22,000 - meaning it'll undercut the Peugeot e-208 and MINI Electric.

New 2025 Volkswagen ID.2 price and release date

When the new Volkswagen ID.2 was first previewed by the ID.Life concept car at the 2021 Munich Motor Show, there was talk of it coming in below €20,000 - that's around £17,500. That's crept up to €25,000 now, which is around £22,000.

Although the final price is yet to be confirmed, it certainly looks like the Volkswagen ID.2 could be one of the cheapest electric cars on the market when it arrives in 2025. It's likely to undercut the current crop of cheap EVs including the Renault Zoe and Fiat 500 Electric, while it ought to be priced roughly in-line with a petrol-powered Volkswagen Polo or Ford Fiesta.

While the tech-heavy interior looks suitably 2025, there are physical buttons for adjusting the volume or changing the temperature of the climate control.

The Volkswagen ID.2all concept actually looks quite conventional - you could easily mistake it for the new Volkswagen Polo, rather than a bold electric vehicle from the ID family. The design team says it pays homage to classics like the Beetle, Golf and Polo, with its 'friendly face' and 'timeless elegance'. We certainly don't think it's going to offend any buyers, which is a good thing for a car that's intended to appeal to mainstream motorists.

Inside, the ID.2all has a 10.9-inch digital instrument panel alongside a sharp 12.9-inch central infotainment system. Significantly, you'll also find a 'classic' volume control and a separate block of buttons to operate the climate control system - quite a departure from the current touch-sensitive setup that's been criticised in the ID.3.

Measuring 4050mm in length, 1812mm in width and 1530mm in height, the Volkswagen ID.2all is quite a small car (smaller than the current Volkswagen Polo, in fact) - but that doesn't come at the expense of practicality. A fold-down front passenger seat backrest provides a 2.20-metre load area, for example, while the boot can carry up to 1330 litres of luggage with the rear seats dropped (or 440 litres with them in use).

New 2025 Volkswagen ID.2: range and performance

Unlike Volkswagen's bigger electric cars, the new ID.2 uses an electric motor to drive the front axle. While efficiency has clearly been a priority over performance, it should still feel pretty sprightly for anyone trading up from a petrol Polo. With 226PS, the ID.2all will accelerate to 62mph from a standstill in less than 7.0 seconds.

Perhaps more significantly, Volkswagen says it's aiming for a range of around 280 miles, while a DC rapid charger will top up the battery from 10 to 80% in just 20 minutes.

The Volkswagen ID.3 is a relatively affordable electric car.
