opening a new era of climate-friendly mobility, the ID. series features carbon-neutrality and impressive driving dynamics characteristic of electric cars. like all the future ID models, the ID.3 is based on the new modular electric drive matrix (MEB) which has been redesigned for an electric drive system without compromise.

the interior has also been updated, with the long wheelbase of the MEB layout combined with very short overhangs, resulting in more space than the one found on a classic compact car. digitally, newly designed display elements and controls ensure that the driver will intuitively find their way inside the car. apart from the display in the cockpit, a centrally-positioned ten-inch touch display provides all key information.
