Volkswagen ID.2, announced for 2025, will now cost 25,000 euros, and not from 20 thousand, as mentioned earlier. The increase in the cost of raw materials makes the compact crossover more expensive than planned, VW boss Thomas Schaefer, who recently took office, said in an interview.
During the debut of Volkswagen ID. Life at the IAA 2021 exhibition, the company assured us that the initial price for the model would be kept within 20 thousand euros. However, now this indicator seems unrealistic.

When asked by Electrified, the Driver replied that it is possible to return to the price of 20 thousand euros, but it all depends on how the cost of raw materials will develop. Interestingly, this is the first mention in the media from high-ranking management of the ID model brand.2. This is the designation that the serial version of the ID. Life concepts should receive.
Recall that the serial version ID. Life should be an electric replacement for Polo. The closest relative of the novelty can be called the Spanish Cupra Urban Rebel. They are both based on a shortened MEB platform.
Power plant ID. Life consists of one electric motor on the front axle. Its recoil reaches 234 horsepower. The battery with a capacity of 57 kWh allows you to travel about 400 kilometers on a single charge. The debut of the model on the market is scheduled for 2025.
