The Volkswagen ID.3 

The Volkswagen ID.3 is the company’s first truly mass-market, all-electric car and the first in the ‘ID’ series. The German automaker has great expectations for it, too, expecting it to become as iconic as the Beetle or Golf. Now, finally, orders are officially opening in the UK on October 22nd. Impressively, the entry-level model costs £29,990 when the government’s plug-in grant is factored in. The first of six trims, the entry level uses a 201bhp electric motor and 58kWh battery. As a result, it’ll manage 0 – 62mph in 7.3 seconds and has a range of 263 miles. Those figures, we think, are pretty respectable. Although it’s worth considering that the range actually decreased as you progress through the trims; largely thanks to heavier in-car technology and larger wheels.

The entry level ‘ID.3 Life’ comes complete with cloth seats and armrests, Bluetooth and DAB radio, and an infotainment package including a 10 inch touchscreen with discover Pro Navigation. You’ll also be able to enjoy auto-dimming lights and electric folding mirrors.

Alternative Trim Options 

As well as the ‘Life’ option, drivers can choose from the ‘Business’ (£33,720), ‘Family’ (£34,650), ‘Tech’ (£36,190) and ‘Max’ (£38,220) trims. Business comes with a rear-view camera, illuminated door handles, tinted rear windows and keyless entry. Family comes complete with climate control, adjustable boot floor and a 130cm-long panoramic sunroof. The Tech option, as the name suggests, boasts travel, side and emergency assist. In addition, it comes with an augmented reality head-up display and upgraded sound system. Max combines the features of the Family and Tech trims, as well as seats with a massing function.

Nevertheless, enthusiasts might consider the flagship ‘Tour’ specification (£39,290). As the name implies, emphasis is placed on the car’s range and charging capacity. It can cover up to 336 miles before running out of juice. When it does, its 125kW charging rate will see it recuperate 217 miles of range in just 30 minutes. Perfect, then, for practically all British drivers barring the most itinerant of business people. According to Volkswagen, the first ID.3 models will arrive in the UK at the end of the month. The company claims the production and transportation of the vehicles are entirely carbon-neutral, too. Either way, in the ID.3, the automotive industry is finally reaching accessible electric motoring. It’s exciting to imagine how things will improve over the next few years.
