Volkswagen had a very busy week at the Munich Motor Show earlier this month. At Germany’s premier auto show, the brand unveiled the all-electric ID.LIFE, a concept for a new entry-level electric vehicle.

While most of the other models in the ID family have very similar styling, ID.LIFE was introduced with a more unique look and some retro styling. During a recent interview with Autoblog, VW’s head of design, Josef Kaban, said the brand wanted to create a new car with a timeless design. The brand wants to adopt a similar philosophy for the rest of its vehicles, he said.

“Volkswagen’s design language should always move in a more timeless direction. It matches the brand. We want to be accurate and understandable and use real materials.

There is no fake or any attempt to look anything else: fake exhaust pipes, fake wood, and so on. We want our cars to be well balanced, ”explained Josef Kaban.

The VW ID.LIFE is based on a compact version of the MEB architecture, which for the first time became front-wheel drive. The concept is powered by a single 230 hp electric motor on the front axle, powered by a 57 kWh battery that provides a range of 248,400 km. The serial electric car will appear in 2025 at a price of about 20,000 euros.
