Infobox: Facts about the ID 1st
In preparation for the launch of the ID.3, prospective customers can reserve the special edition ID.3 1st, which has been specially configured for this purpose. It has high-quality and high-performance equipment and is limited to 30,000 vehicles.
Volkswagen has equipped the ID.3 1st with the medium battery of the series version, which is expected to be the most sought-after. The three battery sizes in the series will permit ranges of 330 to 550 kilometers according to WLTP. The pre-booking special edition has a range of 420 kilometers (WLTP).
The basic price of the ID.3 series model in Germany starts at under 30,000 euros (suggested price) for the smallest version, and is under 40,000 euros for the exclusive special edition ID.3 1st– before deduction of the government subsidy in each case.
Volkswagen offers pre-bookers who purchase an ID.3 1st a year of free electricity charging – up to a maximum of 2,000 kWh – at all public charging stations which are connected to the Volkswagen charging app WeCharge, as well as in the Europe-wide quick charging network IONITY, in which Volkswagen participates and which offers green electricity wherever this is technologically possible.
The ID.3 will be delivered to customers with a neutral carbon footprint. The supply chain, the manufacture of battery cells and production are all geared toward this objective. For example, electricity from renewable sources will be consistently used. Unavoidable emissions in the manufacturing process will be offset by certified climate projects.
Production of the ID.3 1st will begin at the end of 2019. The first vehicles will be delivered in mid-2020.
