The last couple of years have seen Volkswagen showcase multiple vehicles under the ID banner at auto shows around the world.
Revealed at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, the ID.3 is a hatchback from Volkswagen that will spearhead the company's shift towards making cars that are carbon-neutral. It is the first production vehicle from the brand to utilise the MEB platform that was specially developed for electric drive systems.
Instead of an internal combustion engine, motive power on the ID.3 comes from an electric motor that rests on the rear axle and makes 204PS of max power and 310Nm of peak torque.
Volkswagen is offering three different capacity battery packs to power the motor of the ID.3: a 45kWh battery pack that has enough juice for 330km, a 58kWh battery pack that provides a range of 420km and a mammoth 77kWh battery pack that has a range of 550km. These figures are as per the WLTP cycle that is used for range testing in Europe.
