Volkswagen ID1 Supermini Due to Launch in 2023
The future of the automobile industry is anchored on electric cars. Most, if not all, manufacturing plants are angling towards this direction. Volkswagen is no exception.
Volkswagen has investigated the following facets for exceptional results:
Pricing in comparison to the performance
Technology in terms of battery power to be used
Size of the vehicle
The Volkswagen super-mini is projected to be a purely electric vehicle expected to be launched in a couple of years. Its sophistication, performance and elegance are expected to be the best that is yet to be produced. The expectations and the hype that has been set has risen the bar of electric cars in the industry.
Will VW Forego Affordability for Performance and Size in Volkswagen ID1?
Volkswagen ID1 is expected to compete with Peugeot e208 and the Vauxhall Corsa-e. It is an electric-powered vehicle that has been labelled the ultimate future. This car uses Modular Electric Toolkit (MEB) technology for its operation. Its systems have been configured and installed electrically using the latest technology. With such unique technology in play, the prices will be high. It has been estimated that the initial cost can rise to £20,000. This set price is for an equivalent of a VW Polo.
Battery Bank Power
There have been numerous breakthroughs in battery technology. Battery packs play an essential role in the working of the electric car. The more superior they are, the better the end product. Advancements in technology have increased the performance of the first Volkswagen electric car. The prototype that has been used initially has not yet included the latest advancements. It is projected that in the next 2-3 years, further improvements will be made to make the Volkswagen ID1 more efficient. Though the specific power systems that will be used have been kept a secret so far, it has been hinted that electric motors of low power might be used in a bid to cut on costs.
Size of the Vehicle
The current size that has been used to make the Volkswagen electric car is the Volkswagen Polo. This is smaller than the Volkswagen Golf. This translates to having a smaller chassis, thus slightly reducing the cost of production. Plans are still in trial mode for the same system to be used in long-range vehicles. It is also important to note that the Volkswagen electric city car will have more space as the electric systems installed in the car have less volume. This counts as an additional benefit of the ID1.
The Volkswagen electric city car's importance has never been emphasized more than having a special task force assigned. SEAL, is the team tasked with the responsibility of researching and improving the vehicle. The team had previous experience working with electric power systems, hence making them fit personnel for the job. Their core function is to ensure that the Volkswagen ID1 is produced with the highest technology while also cutting on cost where possible.
