star cars from Audi to Volkswagen

VW introduced the ID.3 all-electric family hatchback at its traditional show watch event featuring the various VW Group brands.

Perhaps in an effort to distance itself from diesel emissions scandals, VW the ID.3 is said to “reflect the realignment of the Volkswagen brand, and is also the first model with the new Volkswagen logo”.

This first production model of VW’s ID electric vehicle range, is based on the new Modular Electric Drive Matrix (MEB) platform that will underpin the entire range (and, no doubt, feature in the future electric cars Audi, Seat and Skoda). It features a rear-mounted electric motor, spelling the end of front-wheel drive as a staple in hatchbacks. As with most rivals, the heavy batteries are mounted in the floor to keep the center of gravity as low as possible.

VW says the long wheelbase of the MEB configuration, combined with very short overhangs, results in a particularly spacious five-seater interior that sets new standards in the compact class.

All vehicle functions are controlled by touch or voice, with the exception of power windows and hazard warning lights.

When mass production begins, the ID.3 will be available with three battery size options. The entry-level 45kWh version offers a claimed range of up to 205 miles. It will cost less than €30,000 (£26,770) in Europe.
