The German car company has announced plans to integrate physical buttons and minimalist interior design in upcoming new car models. This decision comes from negative customer reactions to the touch control system on car models such as the Mk8 Golf and electric ID.3.

The ID.2 concept car has proven its influence on Volkswagen’s future design. Physical buttons and mechanical adjustment capabilities integrated in the interior, especially the row of physical switches to adjust the air conditioning under the infotainment screen, have gained popularity from customers.

Volkswagen Interior Designer Darius Watola shared that this was an important step thanks to positive feedback from people who did not like the excessive touch. This model also integrates a rotary button on the center console to control the entertainment screen, creating convenience and comfort.

This isn’t the first time Volkswagen has admitted they’ve gone too far with the touch control trend. In October last year, Volkwagen chief executive Thomas Schäfer said the company would ditch the tactile controls on the steering wheel of newer models in favor of more conventional buttons.

Volkswagen is not only focused on delivering a positive driving experience, but has also set a goal of gradually eliminating leather, hard plastic, and chrome from the cabin. There will be a shift towards using more fabrics and Alcantara to create eco-friendly interior spaces.

The car company has confirmed its plan to develop a production version of the ID.2, with the expectation of keeping the price below 25,000 euros (about 670 million VND). Volkswagen will also introduce hatchback versions of the Skoda and Cupra, and has confirmed there will be an SUV variant in the near future.
