VW has been teasing its ID 3 model since its very first reveal back at the 2016 Paris motor show, but it can now finally unveil its latest all-electric model that it hopes will go on to join the Golf in terms of volume sales.
With prices starting at £27,500 and an all-electric range of up to 341-miles, it offers an extremely enticing package, which just so happens to showcase a brand new, spartan interior that revolves around a new ten-inch touchscreen display and operating system.
Most conventional buttons have been thrown in the bin and replaced with touch surfaces, while the interior feels surprisingly spacious for a car that is only slightly larger than the existing Golf. Boot space is also on par with VW’s most famous hatchback.
Punters will be able to pick from a variety of battery packs at launch, with the range spanning 45kWh, 58kWh and 77kWh, meaning drivers can motor 205, 260 or 341 miles before needing to recharge.
The higher spec ID 3 models are capable of charging at 100kW, meaning it is possible to add a range of around 180-miles within 30 minutes using the appropriate fast-charging network.
