2023 VW ID.2 X – Volkswagen presented a small SUV concept at 2021 Munich Motor Show (IAA-2021), – the VW ID. Life. It is possible to see enough evidence that it will be the inspiration for the VW ID.2X, which is due out in 2026.
2023 VW ID.2 X Redesign
The VW ID measures 4,091mm in length, 1,845mm wide and 1,599mm high. The VW ID is approximately the same size as the VW T-Cross. The wheelbase of the concept electric SUV measures 2,650mm and the ground clearance is 190mm. The concept electric SUV has 410 litres of luggage capacity, which can be expanded more than threefold to 1,285 L if the rear seats are folded down. This is a remarkable amount of space for a car this size. The VW ID. The VW ID. It may remind you of the Honda E’s silhouette, but it is unique in every other way. Jozef Kaban is Head of Design at Volkswagen. This charismatic concept car is his.
Volkswagen used a transparent surface at the front where other cars have radiator grilles and headlamps. To mark the vehicle’s presence in the daylight, three circles made of satin-finished glass are illuminated by a straight line. The front is given a moderately aggressive look by the truncated outer circles at the top, bottom and top. For those dark days, Matrix LED lights can be found behind the translucent surface. The bonnet is made up of a 2-layer, air-chamber textile that is attached to the body using zip fasteners. A separate lid is located in the bonnet’s front that opens into a section to store the vehicle’s charging cables. This section houses the vehicle’s charging port, which Volkswagen neatly integrates with the charging cable storage. The VW ID is displayed on the side. The VW ID is on the side. The Continental Eco Contact 235/45 R20 tyres are made from transparently and sustainably sourced natural rubber, vegetable oils, vegetable resins and silica from ricehusks. The tyres have a 37% recycled and renewable content. To give definition to the otherwise plain-looking sides, a character line runs over the handles. The trapezoidal shape at the sill area serves the same purpose.
The production model is rendered with realistic parts such as conventional headlights, simple pull-type door handles, regular side reflections and an all-metal body. The production model has a beefier front bumper, a higher air intake, and black body cladding along its length. The ID.3 logo is found on the entire nose section and rectangular LED headlamps. The ID.4 logo appears on the rectangular LED tail lamps with an X-shaped motif. Volkswagen applied for a design trademark at the German Patent and Trademark Office before revealing the VW ID. Life concept. These images can be viewed on the German Patent and Trademark Office website. These greyscale images give a clear view of the design and shape behind the quirky small SUV concept.
There are no buttons, switches or other traditional controls. The open-topped, hexagonal steering wheel features a touch-operated section that allows for gear selection as well as other functions like turn signals, horns, wipers, and horns. It is made of plain wood and has a touch surface that allows for basic climate control and light adjustments. There is no instrument cluster. It’s just a head-up display. The dashboard’s upper portion has a 9-inch display. Volkswagen also uses eco-friendly materials inside. ArtVelours Eco is used for the door trim and seat surfaces. It is made up of 71% recycled PET bottles, and shredded T-shirts. Shredded tyres are another example. They are the main ingredient in the rubber paint finish at the entrance.
2023 VW ID.2 X Engine
The concept version features a permanent magnet synchronous motor that generates 172 kW (234 PS/231 HP) and 290 Nm (1214 Lb.ft.) of torque. This motor is powered by a 57-kWh battery pack. Instead of using the more common lithium nickel manganese copper (LiNcM) chemistry, these battery cells use a more cost-effective and sustainable lithium iron phosphate (LFP), chemistry. Although the LFP chemistry doesn’t offer the greatest range, the cost and durability benefits outweigh any disadvantages in entry-level EVs. The ID.Life has a WLTP range estimated at 400 km (249 mi) by Volkswagen. The ID.Life concept can sprint at a speed of 0 to 100 km/h (0-62mph), and its top speed is 180 km/h (112mph).
