The upcoming ID. 2all will be based on an entry-level derivative of the VW Group’s MEB platform.

The design language of the concept resembled that of the Beetle and Golf models in VW’s lineup, albeit with a modern twist. Furthermore, Andreas Mindt, the former designer for Bentley and Audi, was brought back by VW Passenger Cars to lead the design team.

The cabin on the concept also previewed a host of details including a digital instrument console and a 12.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system. However, we also noticed more controls for different functions, bringing back physical functionality to the cabin.

The Volkswagen ID. 2all electric SUV is set to go on sale in 2026 in developed markets. Interestingly, the company is also working on new electric offerings for China with the first model based on a new low-cost platform set to enter production in 2026 as well. The new strategy is expected to help VW regain lost ground from BYD in the region. In India, VW is yet to announce an EV strategy with its focus more on ICE models. The company plans to bring the ID.5 though, which will arrive as a Completely Built Unit (CBU) as a halo offering from the brand. The VW ID.5 is expected to arrive sometime in 2024 or early 2025.
