Electric Golf Set to Arrive in 2025
Volkswagen has just unveiled their miniature ID. 2 model and vowed to make it attainable come 2025. As one can observe in the pictured provided, there is an obvious resemblance to a Golf vehicle, and reports have been circulating lately that Volkswagen will be ditching the name of the ID. 2 car and instead utilize a Golf label. Accordingly, the next electric Golf automobile is anticipated soon although there is no confirmation yet.
The upcoming Volkswagen model has been revealed to be based on the new MEB Entry platform, and is described as “as spacious as a Golf and as inexpensive as a Polo.” This vehicle will offer the same interior space as a traditional Golf, but with a smaller overall size. It will also feature front-wheel drive.
Volkswagen’s next-generation Golf will be powered by a 166 kW motor, a powertrain they refer to as ‘powerful’. While they claim it can get the car to 60 mph in under seven seconds, this isn’t particularly quick. On the other hand, it will run on a “particularly efficient drive battery” with a range of 279 miles according to the European WLTP rating; the EPA rating is likely to be lower, around 240 miles.
Volkswagen alleges that its advanced charging innovation will enable the battery to reach 80% of capacity in approximately 20 minutes. Nevertheless, that capability is reliant upon a sufficient number of chargers capable of delivering enough power by 2025.
Volkswagen’s new design language, as previewed by the ID.2all, appears to be more of an evolution than a revolution. Despite this, the carmaker has described it as having a “powerful stance on the wheels, a friendly face, a good portion of dynamics and timeless elegance,” all of which should make for an attractive package.
Interior technology is yet another area that Volkswagen is striving to improve. The diagonal touch display measures 12.9 inches, and the system itself has a revamped menu structure. The HVAC controls are always visible, running across the bottom of the display. Instead of a volume knob, Volkswagen decided to go with a “practical small thumbwheel to adjust the volume.”
Convenience characteristics comprise of magnetised instrument holders with inborn inductive power supply, a capacity of 440 litres in the cargo area plus a further 50 liters found beneath the foldable rear seat. With the seating collapsed, the stowage space enlarges to an astonishing 1,330 liters. Probably Volkswagen’s decision to persist with front-wheel-drive is accountable for such an impressive storage capacity.
Volkswagen has recently unveiled some of its newest technology, which includes a partly-automated driving system called Travel Assist, LED matrix headlights, 3D LED tail light clusters, and ID.Light – which the company refers to as “intuitive light signals for the driver.” This cutting-edge technology has been designed to make driving easier and more enjoyable for everyone. Travel Assist, for instance, offers drivers assistance with steering, acceleration, and braking, allowing them to relax and enjoy the ride. The LED matrix headlights and 3D LED tail light clusters provide improved visibility and a more modern look. Lastly, ID.Light is intended to provide drivers with a better understanding of their car’s status by emitting intuitive light signals.
Generally, we’re pleased with what we view. It’s a pity the conventional Golf isn’t accessible in North America anymore; but, there’s no chance the GTI and Golf R will go away. If the ID.2all is a true demonstration of the new Golf, then one can only grasp at what the prospect GTI and Golf R might manifest into.
