“The ID LIFE is a first preview of our future electric model category”, says Volkswagen design director Jozef Kabaň. Defending that “innovation, sustainability and the ability to communicate timelessly are the three themes that move.”
As for the interior, it does not fall short of the exterior and also presents a environmentally friendly approach. In particular, with the seats being covered by a fabric named ‘Artverlours Eco’, a secondary raw material that is produced by recycling plastic waste.
Finally, the promise, still, of a multifunctional interior, rivaling the sustainability announced by a model that, however, and at least for now, is nothing more than a concept.
Finally, Volkswagen also recalls that, through the ACCELERATE expansion strategy, it expects increase the weight of 100% electric models in its sales volume by 2030.
On Europe, the goal is for 70% of sales to be electric vehicles, while in North America and China, expectations are that the weight of EVs will be fixed at 50%.
Also thanks to this strategy, the Volkswagen hopes to become the main reference brand, upon the arrival of sustainable mobility.
