Intelligent, innovative and sustainable. Production of the ID.3 started in late 2019 and the vehicle is a pioneer of a new era of mobility at Volkswagen – intelligent, innovative and sustainable. The radically new design involves pioneering technologies. The ID.3 combines all the strengths of the modular electric drive matrix in a vehicle length of a just 4.26 metres – it offers plenty of space in the vehicle interior and the operating concept is intuitively simple. The high-voltage battery has been installed low down in the underbody, ensuring agile and nimble handling.
The interior is also revolutionary. The long wheelbase of the modular electric drive matrix layout and the very short overhangs result in a strikingly large vehicle interior – the Open Space sets new benchmarks in the compact vehicle category. Digital displays and controls make it easy to get your bearings behind the wheel. The ID. Light – an LED strip in the cockpit – visually communicates with passengers. The ID.3 is almost exclusively operated using touch-sensitive buttons and surfaces or the intelligent Natural Voice control. Wireless App-Connect allows the vehicle to be connected to the user’s smartphone – the We Connect app can then be used to control charging or pre-entry climate control, for example.
Launch model fully booked. Pre-booking for the ID.3 1ST started in spring 2019. We have now received over 37,000 reservations for the launch edition, limited to 30,000 units.
Three equipment variants and four output stages. Volkswagen is now presenting the configurable series production model. Customers can choose from three variants – ID.3 Pure, ID.3 Pro and ID.3) Pro S. The variants differ mainly with respect to power output and battery capacity, range and charging capacity. As the top-of-the-range model, the ID.3 Pro S features more exclusive equipment.
The entry-level model, ID.3 Pure, features a battery with a useful capacity of 45 kWh, enabling a range of up to 330 km (WLTP). The electric motor installed on the rear axle generates 93 kW or 110 kW (126 or 150 PS), depending on what customers choose. The ID.3 Pro features a 58 kWh battery with a range of up to 420 km (WLTP), generating 107 kW or 150 kW (146 or 204 PS). The ID.3 Pro S boasts a battery capacity of 77 kWh and a potential range of up to 550 km (WLTP), generating an output of 150 kW (204 PS). All three models can be charged with AC, three-phase current and DC. In only 30 minutes the ID.3 Pro with a charging capacity of 100 kW charges enough energy to cover a distance of approximately 290 kilometres.
ID.3 Pure. The ID.3 Pure is the entry-level model in the vehicle family with a price tag of under €30,000 on the German market. It features a comprehensive range of standard equipment. It includes elements such as 18-inch steel wheels, LED headlights with automatic lighting control and LED tail light clusters.
The interior equipment includes background lighting with ten colour settings, ID.Light, the Air Care Climatronic air conditioning system, intelligent Natural Voice control and the Keyless Start comfort start function. Lane Assist lane keeping system, Front Assist area monitoring system, Dynamic Road Sign Display and Park Distance Control (PDC) mean driving becomes even more relaxed.
ID.3 Pro and ID.3 Pro S. The ID.3 Pro with identical equipment, available at under €35,000, is the all-round version for urban mobility and a medium range. It features a larger battery than the ID.3 Pure, increased range, shorter charging times with DC, and more output. The ID.3 Pro S sits at the top of the model range. Its sporty equipment includes 19-inch Andoya wheels and Play & Pause design pedals.
Options with high-tech character. Attractive optional equipment rounds off the range. As part of the “beats” sound system a 400 W amplifier powers seven speakers and one subwoofer. The augmented reality head-up display projects vital information onto the windscreen. The driver sees the information as a three-dimensional, staggered image at an apparent distance of three to ten metres in front of the vehicle – digital displays and the real world merge. Travel Assist controls the distance to the vehicle ahead by accelerating and braking, keeps the vehicle in lane and shows the surroundings on the Infotainment system display. The system’s function will be enhanced further at a later date: when drivers set a turn signal on motorways, Travel Assist will initiate a change in lanes, providing the surrounding traffic permits this manoeuvre.
Two Style packages. Volkswagen designers have developed the Style packages for customers who want to make their ID.3 look even smarter. In the vehicle interior, customers can choose between the Style and Style Plus variants. Both feature seats with Sumba Flow fabric and ArtVelours microfleece as well as armrests, supplemented by a heated leather steering wheel and background lighting that can be set in 30 colours. Interior Style Plus additionally features electrically powered seat adjustment, seat heating and a pneumatically powered lumbar support with massage function. It is more silent and versatile than conventional lumbar supports.
The Style Silver or Style Penny Copper versions are available for the ID.3’s exterior. These packages include Silver or Copper trim strips on the roof and matching foil on the C-pillar. Greytech metallic elements on the side sills and bumpers accentuate components. Large Sanya wheels from Volkswagen R with a diameter of 20 inches lend the ID.3 an even sportier appearance. Customers can choose from six exterior colours – from Moonshine Grey to Makena Turquoise.
The clearly structured range makes configuration of the ID.3 on the Volkswagen website easier than ever before – customers can configure their dream car in only a few clicks.
