The ID.3, the first arrival from the ID. family, is a compact all-rounder that suits the everyday needs of the electric car driver.
It will be the first Volkswagen on the market to be based on the newly developed Modular Electric Drive Kit (MEB). It is powered by a 125 kW/170PS electric motor, delivering a range of up to 370 miles and is priced similarly to today's Golf with comparable power.
The ID.3 is positioned as a compact electric car, with a new Volkswagen design language for electric vehicles of the compact class. What is known as the Open Space Concept has been implemented for the first time in the car’s interior.
Although shorter than a Golf, the ID.3 offers the generous space of a Passat. This is made possible by the new drive concept architecture with an electric motor on the rear axle and a high-voltage battery in the vehicle floor, which enables more space and flexibility.
By 2025, there are plans for the ID. concept car to have fully automated driving on command. The feature will also come as a downloadable update for owners of the ID.
