Space like in a mid-size car. The interior of the ID.3 is an Open Space – a lounge area that is more than generously sized. The driver and passengers sit at a pleasantly high level, the entry is convenient and there is good all-round visibility. The rear bench seat offers similar space to that found in conventional mid-sized models. The luggage compartment can accommodate 385 litres of luggage, and its volume can be increased to 1,267 litres by folding down the split rear seat backrest (loaded roof-high). The ID.3 Pro S is approved for four persons, all other variants are five-seater models.
Air and light. The interior design underlines the airy and light feeling of spaciousness. It appears restrained and clean, focused on the essentials. The dash panel is lowered towards the interior in several stages. Unlike in a conventional interior, it is not connected to the centre console, which is located as a separate component between the front seats. In the Design “Plus” package, Volkswagen supplies the car with a large panoramic sunroof. With a length of 130 centimetres and a width of up to 111 centimetres, this allows an exceptional amount of light to stream into the interior. An electric blind prevents the interior from heating up.
Muted colours, plus white and orange. The interior of the ID.3 is black in all variants. The seats have a two-tone design – the seat cushion and the larger part of the backrest contrast with the shoulder areas and the seat cushion bolsters. The colours for the seats are called Platinum Grey and Dusty Grey Dark (optional).
There is a choice of several different colours for the Style and Style “Plus” interiors. Dusty Grey Dark creates a friendly, bright lounge-like atmosphere, while Safrano Orange provides strong highlights on the armrests in the doors and in the upper area of the dash panel. The display housings, steering wheel with steering column and the control modules in the doors are then finished in Electric White – a colour that lends the interior of the ID.3 a puristic and almost even futuristic character.
Interiors for every customer demand. The customer can optionally choose the Interior Style package. Here, the seat centre sections are covered with Sumba Flow fabric and the seat cushion bolsters with ArtVelours microfibre. The Interior Style package includes stainless steel pedals in Play & Pause design, background lighting with 30 colours and steering wheel heating.
The second level is called Interior Style “Plus”. Here, the seats feature electric 12-way adjustment, manual adjustment of the seat depth, seat heating and also a pneumatically powered lumbar support with massage function. TopSport “Plus” seats will follow shortly after the sales launch with the same technical equipment, pronounced seat cushion bolsters and integrated head restraints. The centre panels on these seats are covered with ArtVelours; and they are enhanced by ID. logos and decorative stitching. All electrically adjustable seats have been awarded the seal of approval of the German Campaign for Healthier Backs (AGR). This applies to both the driver and front passenger seats. The seats have armrests on the inner side in all equipment variants. All seat covers are made of animal-free materials.
Built more quickly, faster to the customer. For the sales launch of the ID.3, Volkswagen is offering the ID.3 Pro Performance and ID.3 Pro S as preconfigured models. These bundle the options which are most popular with customers in packages. This makes the offering even more transparent for customers, and the factory in Zwickau can build and deliver the cars faster.
The preconfigured ID.3 Pro Performance models. There are six preconfigured ID.3 Pro Performance models with the 58 kWh battery at the start of sales. The entry-level model is the ID.3 Life, which comes with the Convenience and Infotainment packages. The ID.3 Business additionally has the Interior Style, Design and Driver Assist packages on board. The ID.3 Family goes one better – with the Convenience “Plus” and Design “Plus” packages. The ID.3 Style comes with the Interior Style, Convenience, Infotainment and Design “Plus” packages. The ID.3 Tech is additionally equipped with the Infotainment “Plus” and Driver Assist “Plus” packages. The ID.3 Max features particularly extensive equipment: this model has all six packages in the respective “Plus” version – Interior Style, Convenience, Infotainment, Design, Driver Assist and Sport. An additional preconfigured model – the ID.3 Pro Performance – will follow shortly after the start of sales and will have the standard equipment on board.
The preconfigured ID.3 Pro S model. The ID.3 Pro S with the large 77 kWh battery will be available as the generously equipped ID.3 Tour at the market launch. This model has four “Plus” packages on board: Comfort, Interior Style, Infotainment and Assist plus the Design package (without “Plus” scope). A second preconfigured model will follow slightly later. This will concentrate on the standard equipment, which is extended by the Interior Style package like in every ID.3 Pro S.
Generous basic equipment. Volkswagen already provides the ID.3 with generous comfort and convenience equipment as standard. In addition to the features mentioned above, this also includes background lighting with ten colours and a speed limiter. Air Care Climatronic, a further standard feature, is coupled with an electric stationary air conditioning system, which the customer can also activate when the car is not charging from the mains power grid. The passive safety equipment includes the Emergency System and a centre airbag, a new feature in the Volkswagen model range. In the event of a side crash, this airbag can prevent the driver and front passenger from colliding with each other.
The standard equipment also includes the Ready 2 Discover radio with DAB+ tuner and two USB-C ports in the centre console. The App Connect function permits media streaming via a smartphone. ID.3 customers can integrate their mobile telephones in their native environment – Apple Car Play for iOS, Android Auto for Android and Mirror Link for correspondingly equipped devices.
ID. Light. ID. Light is a standard feature that has not yet been available like this in any car – this is a narrow light strip under the windscreen that intuitively assists the driver. After the driver gets into the vehicle, it signals that the car is ready to drive. When the ID.3 has to turn off according to the navigation route, the light moves to the left or right end of the strip correspondingly. Should the driver brake in a critical situation, ID. Light issues a warning in intense red. During a charging operation, a green bar builds up from left to right showing the battery charge level.
Convenience and Convenience “Plus” package. In the Convenience package, the centre console becomes even more versatile – thanks to a light for the mobile telephone compartment, a roller shutter cover and two USB charge ports at the rear. The driver and front passenger seats can be heated, as can the leather steering wheel. The jets of the window washer system are also heated. The package is completed by a rain sensor and surround lighting which projects a honeycomb motif onto the ground.
The Convenience “Plus” package also includes Air Care Climatronic with two-zone control. Another feature is the luggage compartment floor, which can be conveniently inserted into the luggage compartment. It is flush with the load sill, offering storage space for the charging cable and other utensils.
Heat pump for range. The seven preconfigured models available at the market launch of the ID.3 optionally have a heat pump on board. These pumps are highly efficient and therefore make a significant contribution to the vehicle range. A bicycle carrier preparation completes the range of options.
