Default The entry-level Volkswagen ID.1 Electric City Car

The first Electric car for millions of millennials. The entry-level ID is underway.

The ID.1 will have a similar footprint to the 2020 e-Up it replaces, with a boxy five-door body meaning space inside but short overhangs for easy urban driving. Expect to see a few styling cues from the ID.3 in the production version .

the ID.1 electric city car will be underpinned by the versatile MEB architecture, just like the ID.3 and ID.4.

Two battery capacities are expected – most likely 24kWh and 36kWh – to allow a lower price in return for a shorter range. It’s a proven trend for focused all-electric city cars, such as the Honda E and Mini Electric.

Word is that the smallest electric Volkswagen would have a range around 185 miles with the bigger battery pack.

We are working on a BEV below €20,000 (£17,600) – we can shrink the MEB architecture with less content to get the cost down

Looks like a good starting point. Getting in some entry level electric cars will help in faster adoption. 185 miles should yield a real world range of around 250KM after factoring in around 30% less than claimed range which is decent

VW Will Pick New Brand For Budget EV Project, drops the earlier plan of SEAT.

Now it is rumored that brand Volkswagen itself will lead the development of these fully-electric city cars, priced under 20,000 euros.

Volkswagen is currently reconsidering which of its brands will get to develop a new family of small budget EVs after Seat lost out on the project.

Quote:
Word has it that it will be the VW brand itself that will now head the projects, with VW Group execs believing that this will be “more efficient in terms of synergies
At this moment, it is unclear which VW Group brand will officially assume responsibility for this project going forward.

Volkswagen Confirms It's Working On ID.1.

Also on cards is the Tesla Roadster-Rivaling EV.

Volkswagen brand’s new CEO, Ralf Brandstätter:

Quote:
We're working on these concepts. Of course, we have to take into account that lower segments will in the future be demanding EVs, and we're preparing concepts. We will discuss it soon. Cars in smaller segments are important and very interesting for us.

Quote:
expect this all-electric VW-badged city car to be called the ID.1 and be underpinned by a shrunken down and simplified version of the MEB platform - it will completely replace the Up! and its derivatives; the group won't have ICE vehicles in the segment after the current generation is phased out. Previous reports suggested that the ID.1 would reach production around the year 2025, and that the concept that previews it would be shown in 2023.
VW's ID. Launches:

ID.1.. Planned
ID.3...Launched (HATCHBACK)
1D.4...Launching in 2020 (CUV)
ID.5... Planned( Saloon)
ID.6....Planned (SUV)
ID.Buzz.... Van

Volkswagen plans small electric car for the masses, cheaper than the I.D.3 and likely to be the size of the Polo.

Quote:
engineers are racing to develop a purely-battery powered car around the size of a Polo which will be available for between 20,000 and 25,000 euros ($24,000-30,000).

Default Re: The entry-level Volkswagen ID.1 Electric City Car

Volkswagen committed to 'entry-level' ID electric models, starting range to be priced at £17,800 (pre-subsidy), as part of its fast-growing ID range.

VW is developing a new MEB-Lite version of the platform, designed for cars featuring smaller batteries with a capacity of up to 45kWh, remains a priority.

Volkswagen intends to use the platform for a supermini and compact hatchback, likely carrying the ID 1 and ID 2 tags .


The two new models will effectively replace the Volkswagen e-Up as the entry level of the VW electric range, with the smaller batteries reflecting their focus on lower-mileage urban usage.

MEB-Lite platform will also spawn a range of entry-level models from sibling brands Seat and Skoda.

Although it has yet to set a date for their introduction, they are unlikely to appear before 2023.

Coming in 2023, the cheapest electric car from VW. It will be Volkswagen's UP substitute in the electric format.

Likely to arrive in India as the entry level car from the group. Skoda and seat too will get the equivalent of ID.1

Quote:
MEB-Lite should be extended to other markets such as China and India.
Quote:
The Volkswagen ID.1 will be the cheapest electric car of the German brand and will have a presence in the European market and, perhaps elsewhere, from 2023. The subcompact will share the platform with ID.2, the successor of the Polo.

The new architecture that will make it possible to build these two models is currently called MEB-Lite and will be a shortened and simplified version of the current base of the ID.3 and ID.4 models.

Skoda plans electric Citigo replacement based on VW ID.1.

Quote:
The MEB-entry family is expected to use a low-cost version of the MEB architecture, meaning a vehicle length of around four meters – similar in length to today’s VW Polo. VW executives have previously spoken of aiming for a starting price of under £20,000, which Skoda would probably look to undercut. Volkswagen is also rumoured to be planning an SUV based on the MEB-entry platform, likely to take the ID.2 name.
Quote:
unlikely to see a new electric city car from Skoda until the middle of the decade, with the company focusing first on the launch of the electric Enyaq crossover next year, followed by a smaller hatchback model.
Quote:
an electric saloon, about the same size as an Octavia, could follow at some stage after 2025, while the Octavia name could well continue as part of Skoda’s electric plans post 2030.

The Group's entry level City Car will come from SEAT. This will be the I.D.2

The EV will cost between 20,000 euros and 25,000 euros.

Seat reveals cheap electric to be sold by Audi, VW and Skoda. Coming in 2025.

The entry-level Volkswagen ID.1 Electric City Car-1.png

Quote:
The compact will initially be launched by the Spanish brand, but it will be shared with other brands in the group, including Audi and Skoda, in addition to VW itself.
This model will also share the structure with the Polo's successor, ID.2

To ensure a competitive price, VW will develop a new battery technology with a lower production cost and with plants located in Germany and Sweden

Regarding the Seat project, it is expected that the ID.2 has similar characteristics, but with more powerful engine, while the Skoda equivalent will be cheaper and with less power supply, such as the Enyaq iV in relation to the ID .4.
