September 9, 2019 was truly a historic Monday for Volkswagen: on the eve of the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt, the brand presented not only a new car but also the symbol of a new era. The ID.3 is the first model, no less, of a completely new generation of pure electric vehicles – balance sheet CO2-neutral, highly efficient, and fully connected.
The demand, even before the official launch, is already enormous
Like any future ID. models, the ID.3 is based on the new modular electric drive matrix (MEB), which was specially designed for pure electric drive and makes the best possible use of the opportunities offered by e-mobility. The ID.3 has significantly longer ranges, plenty of interior space and outstanding performance. The scalable battery system offers ranges from 330 to 550 kilometers with short charging times – and at an entry-level price of less than 30,000 euros. The market launch is planned throughout Europe for summer 2020. In addition to the flagship ID.3, the ID. model family of tomorrow also includes the SUV space miracle ID. CROZZ, the ID. BUZZ designed as the Bulli of tomorrow, the avant-garde ID. VIZZION the multi-variable all-round ID. ROOMZZ, the beach cruiser ID. BUGGY and the ID. SPACE VIZZION giving a future perspective of the station wagon. The advanced demand for the ID.3 is already enormous. In mid-May 2019, Volkswagen launched the pre-booking of the ID.3 1st Edition – an exclusive special edition limited to 30,000 vehicles with extensive equipment, for which more than 36,000 reservations had already been received by the beginning of December.
