In just a few days’ time, the first model from the new fully-electric ID. family will celebrate its world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA). Finally, the ID.3 – and the first step in VW’s new electric offensive strategy – has arrived.
Electric mobility is the key topic at Volkswagen exhibition stand at this year’s IAA. Not only will the ID.3 be on show, but there will also be studies on other models in the ID. family forming part of the exhibition. These models will follow on from the ID.3.
The ID.3 is based on the new modular electric drive matrix (MEB), which has been specifically designed for electric drive use, ensuring the largest possible vehicle interior. The new EV will play a central role in the next chapter of the VW brand. Back in mid-May, VW enjoyed a successful launch taking pre-bookings for the ID.3 1ST Edition, an exclusive special edition limited to a run of just 30,000 vehicles.
The ID.3 has three different battery sizes available; a large battery (77 kWh), a medium-sized battery (58 kWh) and a small battery (45 kWh). A range of between 330 and 550 km is possible depending on the battery selection. Its impressive charging capacity allows a range of approximately 290 km to be recharged in just 30 minutes. VW will also guarantee the capacity of the ID. batteries for eight years or 160,000 kilometres.
