Volkswagen ID.3 customer cars arrive in the UK

“The moment we’ve been waiting for is here,” said Volkswagen UK MD Andrew Savvas. “The ID.3 has officially arrived in the UK.

“This milestone represents the dawn of a new mobility era for Volkswagen… with the aim of providing accessible electric mobility for millions, not just millionaires.

“Put simply, it signposts the sustainable future of Volkswagen.”

Mr Savvas said that, following the roll-out of the 1st Edition models, series ID.3 versions will arrive in the UK – ahead of the build-up to the new ID.4 electric crossover, due in 2021.

Each ID.3 1st Edition, which costs £38,880 on the road, has a 58kWh battery, 204 hp electric motor and a range of 261 miles.

They are compatible with rapid charging at up to 100 kW, which is good for adding 180 miles of range in 30 minutes.
