A sneak peek at Volkswagen’s electrification journey
Volkswagen is making waves at the IAA Mobility event. They’ve pulled back the curtain on their extensive range of present and future offerings.
At the forefront of their unveiling is the world premiere of the ID. GTI Concept, an exciting development that marks the iconic GTI label’s electrifying leap into the future. It’s a move that echoes Volkswagen’s determination to merge sporty driving with sustainability.
“We have realigned Volkswagen over the course of recent months. Our actions are always focused on the question of what customers expect from us. The complete range of our new orientation will be visible for the first time at the IAA Mobility. Volkswagen is delivering what customers want: whether electric, combustion engine or hybrid vehicles – all our new models impress with enjoyable efficiency, intuitive operation and high quality that is evident in all areas. In this way, we are meeting our promise of once more focusing completely on customer needs.”

Looking ahead, Volkswagen is accelerating its electric mobility agenda. They plan to introduce a whopping eleven new all-electric models by 2027. The ultimate aim is to offer the most extensive EV range among all manufacturers in Europe. The range spans from affordable compact cars priced below €25,000 to spacious family saloons. The ID.7, a roomy all-electric saloon with a potential range of up to 700 kilometres, is already generating buzz as it opens for pre-sales.
At the IAA Mobility, Volkswagen is unveiling the ID. GTI Concept, signalling the evolution of the GTI DNA into the electric age. Volkswagen is confident that this electric version will retain the sporty, iconic, technologically advanced, and accessible traits that GTI enthusiasts have cherished for decades.
While the electric revolution takes centre stage, Volkswagen isn’t abandoning its combustion engine roots just yet. The Passat and Tiguan are getting fresh new generations, offering efficient combustion engine options. These models, based on the successful modular transverse matrix platform, will also come in plug-in hybrid versions with an electric range of around 100 kilometres.
Volkswagen’s presence at the IAA Mobility event is not just about showcasing cars; it’s about demonstrating their commitment to a diverse, sustainable, and exciting future of mobility. With new electric models, revamped brand DNA, and a focus on customer-centricity, Volkswagen is driving towards a brighter, more inclusive tomorrow.
