Affordable Volkswagen ID.1 Coming In 2023

The Volkswagen ID.1 will become the first affordable EV for the masses.

  • Will replace the current Volkswagen e-Up.
  • Special versions such as ID.1 Crozz already in the works.
  • Will also be based on Volkswagen’s MEB electric platform.

Much like the Volkswagen ID.3 is replacing the e-Golf, the ID.1 will take over from the quirky e-Up micro car. As the name suggests, it will be the gateway vehicle into Volkswagen’s growing ID. family of electric vehicles.

Like the all the others, the Volkswagen ID.1 will use the company’s MEB modular electric platform as its basic building block. Given that it will be an attainable offering, it will be fitted with a smaller battery pack which should range between 24kWh and 36kWh. According to carmagazine, the ID.1 should be capable of up to 300km of range with the larger battery.

Interestingly, it seems as though Volkswagen already has an ID.1 Crozz version (crossover variation) and an e-Roomzz van based on the ID.1 in their sights. More variations always draw more attention and interest.

The European market already has a number of smaller EVs in the form of the Honda E and Mini Electric. As such, there are also plans for an ID.2 which is set to rival the Renault Zoe and Peugeot e-208.

The Volkswagen ID.1 should arrive in showrooms by 2023 and it, like the ID.2 and ID.3, are not intended for North America. At least, not for the moment.
