ID.1 Owner's Manuals

Volkswagen ID.1 is a compact urban electric supermini with front-wheel drive, which the manufacturer promises to release as early as 2025. Volkswagen promises that the new product will be available to everyone. In advance, the price of the car must not exceed $20,000.

Model range and competitors

The manufacturer promises to present three versions of the Volkswagen ID.1 model to users, namely the ID.1 city car, the Crozz SUV and the E-Roomzz truck.

The car will be produced on the MEB Entry platform, which will be somewhat shortened compared to other cars from the German concern. Approximately, the length will be reduced by 100 mm and the parameters of the electric car will be similar to the VW Polo. The characteristics of the model will be similar to the e-UP, but with an improved power indicator and optimization of the internal space. The new model will be a competitor for the Peugeot e-208.

The shape of the car is distinguished by smooth body lines, a massive front part in the area of the radiator grille, and a short front. An irreplaceable feature of the models from the manufacturer has become a continuous strip of illumination on the front part, which smoothly connects the headlights and adds to the futuristic design of the car.

The five-door hatchback features additional interior space due to the absence of an engine compared to other models.

Engines

Under the hood of a budget car is an engine with a capacity of 231 hp. , which works together with a battery with a power rating of 57 kWh. This combination will allow you to reach a speed of 100 km/h in a record 7 seconds. The battery capacity is designed for a range of up to 400 km.

It will be possible to minimize the cost of the car by reducing the battery capacity, as well as reducing the cost of raw materials. The battery is one of the most expensive elements in an electric car. In addition, it is reported that the manufacturer is preparing to reduce the battery capacity in order to reduce the cost of the car. It is possible that an indicator of 24 kW/h will be reached.

Additional savings will be achieved by abandoning the MEB platform.

The model has undergone radical changes and reconstructions and is completely unlike its predecessor ID Life. The manufacturer’s representatives are satisfied with the result and are sure that the car will take its place in the segment of urban electric cars.

Despite the use of a slightly shorter platform, the ID.1 manufacturer is working on optimizing the interior of the new model so that the user does not feel a decrease in space in the car, and the use is convenient and comfortable compared to previous models.
