At series production launch the ID.3 will be available with three battery sizes. The ID.3 1ST special edition model is based on the mid-range battery variant.
It will be complemented by a basic variant at a later point. Its battery delivers a usable energy content of 45 kWh and enables an electrically powered range of up to 330 kilometres as per WLTP. The battery can be recharged with a maximum charging output of 7.2 kW (AC) and 50 kW (DC). 100 kW DC charging is optionally also available. The vehicle’s basic model also reaches a top speed of 160 km/h.
The largest battery variant’s actually usable energy content is 77 kWh and the electrically powered range is up to 550 kilometres as per WLTP. The battery can be charged at an AC power source with a maximum charging output of 11 kW and with up to 125 kW at a DC power source.
Ranges that meet customer demands. The forecast ranges have been determined by completing worldwide harmonized light vehicle test procedure (WLTP) cycles on test rollers. The actual range in practical application deviates as a result of factors including driving style, speed, use of convenience and auxiliary consumers, outside temperature, number of occupants, the load carried in the vehicle as well as the topography. Depending on the usage profile, 80 percent of drivers will still be able to cover between 230 and 330 kilometres with the smaller battery variant (45 kWh, net), between 300 and 420 kilometres with the mid-range battery variant (58 kWh, net) and between 390 and 550 kilometres with the largest battery variant (77 kWh, net) without having to recharge. The lower limit of the range consequently also covers journeys at moderate motorway speeds and trips in winter at low ambient temperatures. It goes without saying that trips in urban environments in particular enable a range over that stated as per WLTP.
Convenient charging with the Volkswagen wall box. At the launch of the ID.3, Volkswagen is offering charging stations to recharge at home. The ID. Charger will be available in two versions generating different charging outputs. The charging station is optionally also available with data link and remote access, if required also with an integrated electricity meter. Depending on the version, the units also include Connectivity functions, such as app control or remote servicing. Once installed, ID.3 drivers can thus simply and conveniently connect and charge the car overnight. In terms of pricing, all wall boxes will be made available at prices significantly under those common on the market nowadays.
