VW wants to introduce a new, highly affordable electric “people’s car” that will act as the entry point to its growing ID model range.

The new small EV will use a cheaper version of VW’s MEB platform that underpins models like the ID.3 and ID.4 SUV, designed to accept battery packs with a capacity of up to 43 kWh.

This has been a major goal for VW, who think that offering such an affordable EV will massively help in their long-term sales goals and in achieving their emission targets.

The cheaper version of the MEB platform will be used for two new electric vehicles: a city car and a compact hatchback that will likely adopt the ID.1 and ID.2 nameplates respectively and be marketed alongside regular ICE-powered models like the Polo.

VW targets a sub-€20k starting price ($23,900 in current exchange rates) for the city car and a sub-€25k price tag for the hatchback. The two new electric models are expected to arrive in the market no sooner than 2023, and will most likely be previewed by a concept.

Volkswagen CEO Ralf Brandstätter told Autocar that they are going to work with their various Chinese partners to offer more affordable electric cars specifically designed for that market and that the ‘MEB-lite’ platform will also spawn a number of cheap EVs from their other brands, namely Skoda and Seat.

“We’re working on concepts for smaller segments,” added Brandstätter. “We will discuss it soon. Cars in smaller segments are important and very interesting for us.”


Volkswagen has opened the order books for the all-new Golf Alltrack and Golf Estate in Great Britain.

The jacked-up station wagon is available in a single trim level, from £35,560 ($47,518), or £3,365 ($4,497) more than the Tiguan Allspace, while the regular Estate starts at £24,575 ($32,839), £1,275 ($1,704) more than the five-door hatchback.

Powering the Golf Alltrack is a 200 PS (197 HP / 147 kW) 2.0-liter TDI turbodiesel four that’s mated to a seven-speed DSG dual-clutch transmission and VW’s 4Motion all-wheel drive. The 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) acceleration takes 7.1 seconds and the car averages 49.6 mpg UK (5.7 l/100 km / 41.3 mpg US) in the WLTP cycle and emits between 148 and 151 g/km of CO2.

It also gets a three-zone climate control, Lane Change Assist, Emergency Assist, Side Assist and Travel Assist as standard.

These units are also available with a mild-hybrid system and a 7-speed DSG transmission. Moreover, customers can also choose between two diesels, a 2.0-litre 115 PS (113 HP / 84 kW) TDI and a 2.0-litre 150 PS (148 HP / 110 kW) TDI.

The lineup comprises of three trim levels, named Life, Style and R-Line, with the entry-level getting LED lights at both ends, 16-inch alloy wheels, interior ambient lighting, a 10-inch infotainment system, digital radio, 10.25-inch digital dials and Lane Assist, Front Assist, Dynamic Road Sign Display and Adaptive Cruise Control.

The Bugatti Chiron is an automotive marvel that combines extreme performance with a luxurious cockpit, so most of us wouldn’t dare change anything – you know, just in case we ever won the lottery.

However, Premier Edition begs to differ, so they have launched new wheels for the Molsheim hypercar.

Made in their U.S. factory in collaboration with 1221 Wheels, they measure 11×20 inches at the front and 14×21 inches at the rear, the exact same dimension as the stock ones, and can be ordered in several finishes, including silver and black.

The rims provide a weight saving of up to 20 percent, according to Premier Edition, and are still shod in the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 OEM tires. They were custom-made for the Alsatian hypercar and can withstand the dizzying speeds the Chiron is capable of.

Now, everyone knows that all things related to the Bugatti brand are extremely expensive, and we expect no different for these wheels. Unfortunately, Premier Edition hasn’t announced any pricing details, so Chiron owners who are interested will have to reach out to them to find out how much they cost.

Meanwhile, last year we stumbled upon a used set of wheels and tires for the Veyron listed for $100,000. That’s crazy money, yet it’s still about $50,000 less than buying a new set from Bugatti…
