Volkswagen has previewed its new entry-level ID model in a sketch featured on a Christmas card sent to journalists.
The electric compact hatchback, known under the internal working name ID Entry, is planned to be revealed in concept guise during the second half of 2020, prior to going on sale in 2022 at a price that will undercut the ID 3.
Set to have a simple one-box silhouette and a full-width tail-light graphic, the ID Entry will be the first recipient of Volkswagen’s new MEB Entry platform.
Described as a more cost-effective version of the MEB structure that's set to underpin larger and pricier ID models, it's planned to form the basis of a range of similarly positioned electric models from a number of Volkswagen Group brands, including Skoda, Seat and the new, China-only Jetta.
Details of the new platform remain scarce, although Volkswagen’s chief operating officer Ralf Brandstätter says he expects the battery to be used by the ID Entry will give it a range of between 130 and 150 miles.
