2020, Volkswagen ID.3, which comes at the height of yesterday's big debut, is featured in a series of videos that highlight the company's claims to be the third most important car after the Beetle and Golf. The compact five-door luxury adopts a new design language reserved for the upcoming ID family of clean electric models, and introduces a fresh visual identity to distinguish the EVs from the conventional powered VWs.

This is rarely the case when a carmaker correctly uses the term "brand new", but ID.3 was really developed from the ground up. Even the well-known VW logo has a mildly updated look to signal the wave of the future as Wolfsburg invests heavily in electric vehicles to make us forget the Dieselgate test. This zero-emission hatch is about the size of a Golf and is just the tip of the iceberg, with an entire fleet of ID cars scheduled for production over the next decade.
Seems to be subjective, but it does not deny ID.3 stands out among the ICE-powered cars offered by the VW core brand. The exterior represents a significant departure from the e-Golf it replaces, while the minimalist interior is also a first for the German brand. In case you haven't already noticed, "pause" and "game" logos have been built into the brake and accelerator pedals respectively.

The adjacent videos show not only the regular ID.3, but also the limited-edition launch edition for which VW has already received 30,000 pre-orders. It comes with a mid-range 58 kWh battery and offers 201 hp (150 kW) of power, with an instant torque of 310 Newton-meters (229 pound-feet) channeled to the rear wheels.
Carries a starting price of less than € 40,000 in Europe, ID.3 1 st will be offered in three fixed configurations, with the range-topper being a "Max" version with everything from one head-up display and Beats sound system for a panoramic sliding roof and 20-inch wheels.
Production of VW ID.3 2020 will start in November, but the first customer deliveries will not happen until next summer.
