Norman Tenneberg, Head of subdepartment High Voltage Battery Housing, Underbody cladding and Wheel Arch Liner, was responsible for safely and neatly positioning the compact ‘chocolate-shaped’ battery in the vehicle floor, among other things.

The safety and lightweight design of the ID.3: Volkswagen’s first-ever full-surface underbody protection is made from aluminium and designed to minimise the drag coefficient (Cd value).
