The wait is over. It feels like an age since Volkswagen teased us with the prospect of its first “from-the-ground-up” all-electric car.
Expected in 2020, the verdict on how the Volkswagen ID.3 will drive is still to come in. But, let’s face it, this is Volkswagen – it’s not going to be a bad drive. VW is positioning, and indeed expecting, this car to be as revolutionary as the Golf was when it launched in the 70s.
The ID.3 Long Range has an impressive range of 342 miles (WLTP) thanks to its 77kWh battery. Not content with pure efficiency and range, this variant will see you crowned champion of the traffic lights with a 0-62mph in 5.5 seconds.
Using a Type 2 connection for home charging, the Long Range ID.3 can charge up to 11kW, which means it takes around eight hours to charger from empty to full. This would require three-phase supply at your home though, so most owners will need to stick with a 7.4kW home charger which will take 12 hours to fully charge.
The ID.3 Long Range has even faster rapid charging capabilities than the Standard Range and Mid Range when you’re on the road. The CCS rapid charge connection allows the Long Range to charge up to 125kW and will take the car’s battery from 10% to 80% in 34 minutes.
