What Car? winner of 'Small Electric Car of the Year' 2021. Whatcar? described the ID.3 as “the most well-rounded small electric car you can currently buy,” with its range, handling and performance among the best in its class.
The future has arrived!
The ID.3, the first arrival from the ID. family, is a compact all-rounder that suits the everyday needs of the electric car driver.
It is the first Volkswagen on the market to be based on the newly developed Modular Electric Drive Kit (MEB). It is powered by a 125 kW/170PS electric motor, delivering a range of up to 340 miles and is priced similarly to today's Golf - with comparable power!
The ID.3 is a compact electric car, with a new Volkswagen design language for electric vehicles of the compact class. What is known as the Open Space Concept has been implemented for the first time in the car’s interior.
Although shorter than a Golf, the ID.3 offers the generous space of a Passat. This is made possible by the new drive concept architecture with an electric motor on the rear axle and a high-voltage battery in the vehicle floor, which enables more space and flexibility.
The ID.3 is currently eligible for the Office Of Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) Plug-In Vehicle Grant - currently at £3,000 discount on the purchase price. Prices shown include this grant.
