‘the ID.3 is an all-rounder that is suitable for everyday use. it is compact, as such offering the manoeuvrability of a small car with the interior space of a mid-range vehicle. it combines exciting design with innovative technology and significant range,’ comments silke bagschik, head of sales and marketing for the ID. family.

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.

the volkswagen ID.3 will be available with three battery size options: the basic one — 45 kWh with a range of up to 330 kilometres, with a price tag of €30,000; the next battery variant with 58 kW, featuring up to 420km; and the largest battery is 77 kWh with an electric rage of 550 kilometres. Due to its fast charging capability, the car can be charged for a range of around 290 kilometres within 30 minutes.
