VW ID 3: Of Golf with current and plastic

The Gulf of the electric age to be for Volkswagen, the model ID 3. If you order now, should get it later this year, the first delivery is planned in October. A, two functions from the digital world no longer has to get the VW done in time, you will later be available via software update installed. In such operations, you have to get used to perhaps. After all, the ID 3. The production model now for a first test drive available.

F. A. Z.

Three versions are planned with 45-, 58 -, or 77-kWh battery, the electric motor makes 150 or 204 horsepower and 310 Newton-metres of torque, are at least 35.575 Euro. First of all, only around 3500 Euro more expensive 1st Edition with 204 HP and a 58 kWh-battery is delivered, there are four colors to choose from and three trim packages.

With the 1.8-tonne vehicle has the rear seat end and a driving electrical machine is remarkably easy game, ID 3 feels handy. His forward thrust up to the maximum speed of 160 km/h is so emphatically as harmonious, and the chassis provides successfully for comfort. The throttle response is not as snappy as in the Mini E, which is contrary to the clientele.

With the light steering, curves target can be precisely controlled, the design staggers under the researchers of gait, but it remains always manageable. In the electric car noise is low outside is important, here, VW, merit has done a full work. We suspect, after our first round to Hanover, that, of the 420 according to the standard envisaged kilometres in everyday life 350 are possible, up to a charging station must be visited, is allowed to fill up to 125 kW.

In the interior of 4.26 meters long, ID 3 is at the front and back, plenty of space, and there are numerous shelves. The Seating position to the steering Wheel and pedals fits well. However, the seats are less comfortable than the Golf, and what VW is doing in the interior, is a weak piece. Hard plastic, as far as the eye and the Finger range, gear shifting and speedometer as the cosmos-injection kit, a labbriger plastic knob for the mirror adjustment, disappointing. You realize the ID 3 anywhere, under any cost, pressure he created. Whether this will work? We would not write off the lovingly-made Golf yet.
