VW ID 3 racks up 10,000 deposits in first day

The VW ID.3 – Volkwagen’s most important car in years – opens up reservations

It will offer three battery options, with the lowest providing an estimated 205 miles of range, the middle offering 261 miles of range, and the top option offering 342 miles of range-all on the WLTP testing cycle, which differs from the EPA's range calculations.

Volkswagen has taken a page out of Tesla's book, and thrown open reservations on the new VW ID.3 all-electric city auto.

Stackmann said VW will initially electrify Europe with the ID.3, followed by other regions and further electric models in the ID. family in the near future.

Let's get straight to the price, because the VW ID.3 will probably cost only 30.000 euros. The most important markets in Europe for the ID.3 will be Norway, Germany, the Netherlands, France, the United Kingdom and Austria. Indeed, the goal is more than 100,000 vehicles being delivered per year. We also knew that it would be a hatchback sitting on the brand-new MEB platform, which would then also be used to roll out production versions of the ID Crozz, ID Buzz, ID Vizzion, and ID Roomzz concepts. The "ID.3 1st Plus" edition, which was introduced in Berlin on Wednesday, will come with fancier interior lighting and a two-tone exterior.

The ID.3 1ST edition will feature an equipment package with voice control, navigation and large rims. In addition, to those who make pre-orderers and purchase an ID.3 1ST, Volkswagen offers the option of charging up to 2,000 kWh free of charge for one year. Reservations are being taken now, with a refundable 1,000 euro ($1,122) deposit.

Information about the vehicle's specs are also limited: there will be three versions of the special edition model whose ranges span from 330 to 550 kilometres and prices start between €30,000 and €40,000.

The ID.3 will enter production in Europe at the end of 2019.

Speaking during an event held in Berlin on May 8, Volkswagen board member Jurgen Stackmann confirmed every electric auto the firm releases in the coming years will wear the letters ID followed by a number. VW says it is working hard to eliminate the hitches. That's the custom architecture for electric vehicles which will underpin multiple models across all of VW Group's brands.
