Volkswagen to release smaller ID.1 and ID.2 electric models by 2024

Volkswagen is looking to fortify its electric assault with the addition of two smaller models in the ID range – the ID.1 and ID.2, as reported by Car. The models will be built on familiar, scalable MEB electric architecture – the same seen in the larger ID.3 and ID.4, however costs will be brought down by reducing features and driving range. “We can shrink the MEB architecture with less content to get the cost down,” Volkswagen brand chief Ralf Brandstätter told Car.
