Volkswagen has finally given us our first look at the sub-£20,000 ($24,000) compact electric car we’ve been eagerly awaiting, in the form of the adorable, stubby, VW ID. Life concept.
[This is part of an ongoing collaboration between Electrek and Fully Charged.]
Unveiled at the Munich motor show, the ID. Life is nowhere near production-ready, but it does give some interesting insights into what to expect from Volkswagen’s baby EV when it hits the road in 2025.
The production car will utilize a shortened version of the MEB platform, and unlike the ID.3, will be front-wheel drive. It likely won’t have the 220bhp of the concept, or the unzippable roof made of sleeping bag material – but what’s the point of a concept car without silly features that won’t make production?
Equally exciting, the ID. Life will be joined in 2025 by sister cars from Skoda and Cupra, also utilizing a shortened MEB platform.
Check out the video below for a first look at what is very possibly the most significant car of this year’s Munich Motor Show.
