At IAA (12 to 22 September) the ID.3 will be accompanied by two more electric Volkswagen models: the most recent generation of the also premiering e-up! and the current e-Golf. That’s three Volkswagens and three zero-emission vehicles for today and tomorrow. Volkswagen will also showcase other concept cars within the ID. family as part of an outlook on the future: the spacious ID. CROZZ SUV, the ID. BUZZ, celebrated as tomorrow’s van icon, the avant-garde ID.VIZZION saloon and the ID. BUGGY beach cruiser. These vehicles will merge the present with the future at the IAA 2019 and launch the Volkswagen Passenger Cars Brand and automotive mobility into a new era.
ID.3 1ST – the visionary car. Like all members of the ID. family, the new ID.3’s design is based on the modular electric drive matrix (MEB) developed by Volkswagen. In mid-May, Volkswagen successfully started the pre-booking phase for the ID.3 1st edition – an exclusive special edition, limited to 30,000 vehicles, with a comprehensive set of features.
The ID.3 1ST will be offered with the medium-sized of the model’s three available battery sizes and deliveries have been scheduled to begin in mid-2020. The base price for this model will be less than €40,000. This price will include up to 2,000 kWh of electricity for one year following the day of the vehicle’s initial registration. The battery in the ID.3 1ST has a capacity of 58 kWh. This battery will supply energy to the 150-kW electric motor and enable a top speed of 160 km/h and a range of up to 420 kilometres (WLTP). The ID.3 will also be offered with a 45-kWh or 77-kWh battery. The ID.3 with the 45-kWh battery will be able to travel up to 330 kilometres (WLTP) with one battery charge. Opt for the 77-kWh variant and the range increases to up to 550 kilometres (WLTP).
