VW ID.3 review

NGC verdict 04.02.2021

There are few models launched that have as much riding on them as Volkswagen’s ID.3. The pure-electric hatchback has been billed by the Wolfsburg-firm itself as the beginning of its third main chapter. The other two? They would be the Beetle and Golf. No pressure then for the ID.3. Launching the brand’s ID. Electric sub-brand, and built on a dedicated EV platform that will underpin a large number of VW Group models, it’s safe to say that the ID.3 is a key model. We test the 1st Edition model to see how Volkswagen’s next-generation electric models kick off.
