VW Unveils EV Concept

Thu 9th Sep 2021

Volkswagen have used the International Motor Show in Munich to give a glimpse into what the near future of electric vehicles might look like for the brand.

The German motor manufacturer has unveiled the ID. LIFE, a compact car that according to the company’s press release ‘embodies sustainability, digital technology, timeless design and an innovative interior.’

That innovative interior includes bench seats which can be folded down to create a cinema seating effect, or even turned into a bed. The interior of the ID. LIFE also includes a video game console, a projector and even a projection screen extending from the dash panel. Digital technology is cutting edge, with the option of operating the navigation system from connected personal devices such as a smartphone or tablet.

“The ID. LIFE is our vision of next-generation fully electric urban mobility. The concept car provides a preview of an ID. model in the small car segment that we will be launching in 2025, priced at around 20,000 euros. This means we are making electric mobility accessible to even more people”, says Ralf Brandstätter, CEO of the Volkswagen brand. “In creating the ID. LIFE, we have consistently focused on the needs of younger customers. We believe that, even more so than today, the car of the future will be about lifestyle and personal expression. The customer of tomorrow won’t simply want to get from A to B; they will be much more interested in the experiences that a car can offer. The ID. LIFE is our answer to this.”
