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 Standard Range has a very respectable range of 205 miles (WLTP) and will take you from 0-62mph in eight seconds. Not the fastest EV on the market, but some of the other models in the range, such as the Long Range, are much nippier.
The family hatchback makes use of a Type 2 connection for home charging and a CCS fastcharge port for rapid charging on the road. At home, the ID.3 can charge up to 7.2kW and will take around seven hours to fully charge from empty at this speed.
On the road, the ID.3 Standard Range can make use of 50kW rapid chargers which means the time to charge from 10% to 80% is as little as 45 minutes. Other models in the range can make use of faster 100kW and 150kW rapid chargers.
