This is the VW ID. LIFE, Volkswagen's next all-electric concept, presented at the IAA Munich 2021. The ID. LIFE is built on a scaled-down version of Volkswagen's MEB architecture. It is also the first MEB-based front-wheel drive vehicle.
Outside, the ID.LIFE resembles the ID.3, ID.4, ID.5, and ID.BUZZ models. The ID.LIFE is equipped with boxy, retro-style hatchbacks.
It features an upright and streamlined design with an interesting front end that incorporates LED headlamps, the VW emblem, and a light bar that is harmoniously integrated inside the bodywork. LED taillights and a light bar that mirrors the headlights may be seen at the back.
The ID. Life's wheelbase of 2650 mm is somewhat longer than that of Volkswagen's best-selling model, the Golf Mk8. This wheelbase provides considerable back legroom as well as great luggage space for the electric concept car. The back storage compartment alone can hold 225 liters of goods, which may be expanded to 1,285 liters with the rear seats folding. There is also an additional 108 liters beneath the load floor.
There is also another 68-liter storage compartment in the front region, as well as another place with an approximate volume of 8 liters to keep the charging cord.
The identification. Life, too, lacks side mirrors and instead relies on cameras. the identification LIFE features a projection screen that stretches from the dashboard and covers the inside of the windscreen. The multimedia is then shown on this large, 34-inch screen using a projector. VW has installed a retractable projection screen as well as a gaming console, which we're quite sure won't be available on the 2025 production car.
An e-motor delivers 231 horsepower and 290 Nm to the front wheels, allowing for a 0 to 100 km/h time of 6.9 seconds and a peak speed of 180 km/h. It also has a 57 kWh battery pack with a range of 400 km.
VW ID. LIFE will be introduced in the compact car sector in 2025, with a price tag of about €20,000.
