The Volkswagen Group will develop a family of entry-level electric models based on its forthcoming sub-£18,000 ID ‘people’s car’.
During a financial presentation recently, the Group detailed plans for an ‘MEB entry family’ among the initial wave of electric vehicles planned to be introduced under the sub-brand before the end of 2025.
The family was listed alongside a number of models already confirmed for production by Volkswagen, including the ID hatchback that's due to be revealed later this year and the ID Buzz MPV, as well as upcoming offerings from sister companies, Audi, Porsche and Skoda.
Volkswagen Group chairman Herbert Diess said the MEB platform would spawn “small city cars” as part of its expanded electrification plan.
Official confirmation of the so-called MEB entry family follows the confirmation of an ID model, known to insiders as the EV people’s car, for around £17,200, as previously reported by Autocar.
