Volkswagen Group signals about its upcoming affordable EVs via first pics
Seat, Skoda and Volkswagen have all posted sketches on their social pages that give us an idea of what to expect from their wallet-friendliest electric cars. All three models are still in development based on the same technological platform.
The companies promise to ensure that the exteriors and the market positioning of these models are different enough not to blur into each other. Launch dates remain unannounced at this time, but some conclusions can already be made just from looking at the sketches posted.
Thus, the Volkswagen EV depicted looks very different from the ID. Life Concept many believed it would be based upon (see video for a reminder). The car shown here is rounder and curvier with sculpted quarterpanels and rear fenders. It is a hatchback that looks like a smaller copy of the latest ID.3 model. It also appears unrelated to the ID. Life in any way.
Moving on to the Skoda sketch, the body is considerably more stretched and estate-like. Autoevolution believes the car will be roomier, more practical and possibly even cheaper than the VW.
Rounding off the trio is a sporty-looking Seat hatchback with an elaborate front bumper and spoiler, flared fenders and a contrast top. This one might reach production first under the Cupra sub-brand, according to reports.
VAG has confirmed that production of all three will begin in Spain in 2025. Prices will start at around €25,000.
