It seems that the Volkswagen ID.2all is he first step towards affordable electric mobility and it has already been submitted. According to the information published on the Volkswagen website, the new electric car, whose final version will not be presented until 2025, has the interior space of a Golf and the price of a Polo, with its estimated price starting from €25,000.
